Journaling for People Who Don't Write

by Dec 27, 2006

The problem in the past has been that it takes me so long to write with pen and paper that it becomes more of a chore than a joy. I tried using Word as a virtual journal for a while, but my 30-page document just got too cumbersome.

A friend pointed me to a new donation-ware program for Mac called Journler. Not only can you easily write and organize your daily entries, you can even toss in audio clips, photos, even video from your iSight (in case you’re practicing video confessionals for a new career in reality-TV shows). And it’s all just so elegantly Mac-like.

If you’re still stuck using a PC, I’ve heard Evernote is a decent alternative.
