I absolutely love The Journal. It is super easy to use; I’m more inclined to journal on my computer where it is secured, than I am by writing it out on paper or in a book. I am amazed at just how easy it is to use this product. I highly recommend The Journal for anyone who needs to journal as a form of therapy. I’ve been telling people about it at different meetings I’ve participated in. I loved that you gave me a discount based on my service to the country in the USN. Keep up the good work!
I have used your journal for several years. I am addicted. I may never perfect the art of writing. But your Journal is great for learning. Thanks for listening. A passionate journalist.
Celebrating 20 Years of Journaling (1996-2016)!
The Journal turns 20 this summer!
For two decades The Journal has been helping people (including me) take notes at work, remember how they felt this time last year, write books, track goals, organize projects, store recipes, draft blog posts, rant in safety, keep secrets, record dreams, jot ideas, resolve resolutions, and more–sometimes, all at the same time!
(I’ve also spent a good chunk of those 20 years convincing spell checkers that, yes, “journaling” is a word. And properly spelled. 🙂 )
Hi, David,I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you I’ve now been using your journal software for 10 years! I’ve amassed over 5,500 entries and find it invaluable for both my home life and work too.Your software is by far the best, and so easy to use. I love the way The Journal is so functional, clean and reliable, plus coupled with the regular updates you roll out I know my entries are safe.I’ll continue to keep my journal for as long as I can still type, and your software will always be my choice because quite simply there is nothing better to be found, and I wouldn’t trust anything else with my entries.This quick letter was just to let you know how good your software is, and how essential it has become for my day to day life. I can’t imagine a day without typing something into my diary! Keep up the good work.Kind RegardsJulian

Daily entries, weekly entries, or even hourly entries. All of those are possible. Make entries on future dates up to 9999 AD, or as far back in the past as 1 AD. You can even have entries that aren’t tied to any date at all.

Make The Journal your journal.
The Journal is just the greatest! It’s so well organized, easy to use, and full of incredibly useful features. I especially like it’s wonderful linking abilities. This program has actually helped me tremendously at work – where I now get the most use out of it. I am, by nature, VERY disorganized, and it gets me in trouble constantly at work. I have a job wherein I often work on several projects at the same time, jumping back & forth between them, and I don’t have the time or wherewithal to keep notes to help me keep track (i.e., where should I put the note- main folder, project folder, project sub-folder, on the server, which folder on the server?, etc.) Now it’s all in ONE PLACE, with links to pertinent files- it’s just WONDERFUL!!
I HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone who needs to be able to easily keep track of all their computer work, as well as anything else they feel like typing text about. Well worth the price!

Thank you so much for The Journal. When I started working as a Senior Software QA Engineer for Comcast Interactive TV Groups I thought there was no way to learn it all or remember all the technical information found in cable TV systems. It was overwhelming. Keeping a journal and being able to categorize all my technical notes has made it easy for me and has helped me advance quickly in my field compared to my counterparts. The Journal is a fantastic tool for my brain and career. It’s not just for writers!!!!
I love, love, love The Journal. It is very well designed for any user, from a novice to a veteran geek like me. The idea of providing the user with a fully functional product to test drive for a very generous amount of time is definitely a way to go. I did not even wait that long. After only a couple of days of using The Journal, I knew I would be buying the license. Thanks again, for making such a great, useful and user-friendly program!
Build an Information Database with The Journal!
Put everything in The Journal, and find it in a snap with The Journal’s fully indexed searching. The Journal allows you to search entry titles, image and media descriptions, and your reminders.
Link your entries to each other, to Web pages, to files on your hard drive, even link to your entries from other software.
Organize your information with The Journal’s categories, or dump it all in one uber category and do ad hoc searches. The Journal’s indexed search even supports simple match queries with AND, OR and NEAR.
Go beyond text search with The Journal’s topic feature. Create your own tree-structured list of topics, and tag your entries for rapid look up. You can tag an entire entry for a top-level overview, or tag blocks of texts and images within an entry and see them in isolation when you search by topic.
Here is a quick overview of how The Journal organizes your information: You can have one or more Journal Volumes (databases), each with one or more user logins with individual passwords. Each user login can have one or more categories (which can also have passwords). Categories can be either calendar categories (date-time-based entries) or loose-leaf (tree-structured entries). A category can have any number of entries (documents).
