It’s time for another edition of Friday Favorites! I’m doing something different this week. I wrote about the importance of keeping a daily journal in my post on July 24, 2012. Here are several ideas for you to consider as you begin your own journaling journey. I encourage you to learn more about these tools and do additional research to find a tool that works for you.

DayOne – I mentioned this app on a previous Friday Favorites, but it’s worth mentioning again. I now use this app to journal on my Mac computers, iPhone, and iPad. The user interface is very simple, and your entries sync via iCloud or Dropbox.
Ecosystem notebook (affiliate link) – There are times when I just want to write instead of type. This notebook is small (5″ x 8″), and it’s easy to take with me. The paper is from 100% recycled material. I really enjoy writing and taking notes in this notebook. The pages are perforated, so they tear easily for scanning.
750 Words – This is a simple, browser-based, and free journaling application. I’ve tested it on my computers, iPhone, and tablets. You get daily reminders via e-mail so you don’t forget to journal.
280Daily.com – If you only need or want to write a few words a day, this is your choice. 280Daily is another browser-based application that limits you to just 280 characters (40-50 words) a day. My eight-year-old stepson uses this to journal and improve his writing.
I hope these are useful for you. The key is to start. I have grown to really enjoy my time journaling, and I am more focused with my writing by doing this.
Have a great weekend!
