  • I want to write a journal to my future self. Where can I hide it and not lose/forget about it? I have a terrible memory and I tend to lose my things a lot.
    I used this for a while. I think some of the more advanced features require a subscription, but you can definitely try it and use the basics for free. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Heidi is really going for it today with the "I don't need no man" idea. Read all 4 slides.
    Instead of going on whatever social media site to trauma dump and humiliate myself, I open a journaling app. A physical notebook works too, but I use an app that syncs across devices. Posting to that app from my mobile device or computer from wherever scratched that same "itch." I could attach pictures to my entries as well in order to spare my Insta followers. This is what I use. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Pls suggest any apps for an online journal that is free and without subscriptions 😊
    While they do have a paid version, the free version of Journey (link) is a great journal/diary app on its own. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • Writing is physically painful
    I use Journey because it's both an app and browser based, and it can be password/pin protected. If you look on the website, it seems like there's a lot going on, but it's a deceptively simple app. I've been using it for years and years. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Mac user thinking about switching to Linux + Windows 10 in a dual boot setup
    I've never heard of Day One, but here are many journaling apps, for example Journey. I can't recommend one as I've never used them. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Bear vs Day One
    Use Journey. Cross platform including Web and Windows. No subscription (the option for one off payment) and has all the features of Day One which I used to use. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Moved from Windows 10. What do you guys use for journal? Daily Diary?
    I found Journey app. But it has a subscription based. Not like fully owned software. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Moved 1000km away, changed career, escaped toxic family/work and a pointless life. This is the single best year I've been alive.
    Thanks! I was lucky enough to start using four years ago, so I have a really good record of the entire situation leading up to my decision, with the added bonus of the memories feature (throwback entries from this time x years ago). It's been my therapist at times, and more than once I've only come to a decision or realisation once I wrote out my feelings. Best money I've spent online by a longshot,... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Day One, the Journaling App, Joins Automattic
    I switched to Journey for quite some time now. Mostly because it is way cheaper, and also has a windows application. In addition it allows to export all entries (docx & pdf) and it can import from Day One. The user experience is mediocre though, and there is no e2e encryption! - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Looking for self-hosted Journaling software
    Curious if anyone here has experience with journaling software that can be self hosted. I'm now using Journey ( - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
