Journalling takes consistency but you first need the right platform and the willingness to write, every day.
I've battled journal platforms throughout the years, debating whether or not to use paper or my computer or smartphone to record my thoughts and memories.
I've purchased a few Moleskins, encouraged by famous users, only to be discouraged by blank empty pages that remind me I didn't record my thoughts the night before.
I used a private Tumblr page to record my thoughts, only to be scared that one day it'll be hacked.
And then the Day One App came along. The app is available on the Mac, iPhone, and iPad. I own the iPhone version.
The app makes it simple to record your day and publish it securely to the web, saved and synced via Dropbox.
The app's simplicity also propels you to keep your journal entries brief, no more than 2-3 sentences. I usually just type in my highlight of the day and also note some encouragement or future wish.
One day, I simply want to scroll back or search and read upon that entry. I want to save my memories to see how far I've come and where I need to go.
If you're a WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing the following:
1. Read Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
2. Use Grammarly to improve your writing and proofread all your work, even emails. Try it for free here.
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best creators in the world.
4. If you're a writer, artist, creator, etc. — Create your own Wordpress site and publish something new every day. It'll be the best investment you make. Just do it.
