When I was little I used to write in my journal all the time. I think I filled up like seven of them. Then I got married, had kids, and sadly I stopped journaling. It’s always been one of those thing that bums me out. I really want to do it but just can’t seem to find a quiet moment or the time to squeeze it in. I’ve always believed that keeping a journal is an awesome form of therapy, which I clearly need. But also, I would love for my posterity to have the option of learning about my life, family, and crazy thoughts. I’ve been getting into family history lately, learning about my ancestors, and how neat would it be if I had a journal from each one! Being realistic with myself, I know that at this time of my life, I will probably not find the time to put pen to paper on a regular basis. BUT, I found a favorite app that I super-duper love, that is making journaling easy for me.
It’s called… Remembary.
This is why I love it:
It’s a journaling app. When I’m lying in bed at night, checking the email and stuff on my phone, I can easily open that too and type in a paragraph about my day. Truth be told, I can actually text/type as fast as I can write with a pen… and, I’m sure you’re the same! I have my phone with me everywhere, so I can write when I’m sitting at the doctors office, waiting for my kids to be done with an activity, wherever.
You can give each day a title, like ‘The Raddest Day Ever,” “I Have Lost My Mind,” or whatever you want. Then you just type.
There is a little clock button that will stamp the time that you wrote… in case you write more than once during the day.
Any pictures you took on your phone will be attached to your diary on the day they were taken. You can also set it to save your Facebook, Twitter, or RSS feeds to their designated day as well. It really helps to see the whole picture of what your day was like.
You can change the backgrounds or fonts, which my girly-self really likes.
You can only access the journal with a password, so speak yo mind.
If you want a hard copy of your journal, you can export it to plain text and paste it into a document for printing.
You can find and download Remembary in the iTunes App Store.
