All My Journals is probably the simplest dedicated Journal keeping software out there. There were many features that could have been added but weren’t, and many features that might have benefited a small number of users that were deliberately left out.
Why did we do this?
Many people say they want to keep a Journal or Diary – something they can refer back to years down the road so they know what they were thinking or doing back in 2011. Some of these people succeed, but most do not. They start off on the right track, make a few entries for that first week, then forget about it of simply drift away.
Those who fail often fail because organizing their Journal on their PC is too difficult. If they use MS Word or another word processor, they have to remember where they are storing their files, and they have to create new files each week or month.
Others worry about the security of their journal and what might happen if their husband or mother were to stumble across it. So they censor themselves or they give up after a few weeks, and if they do censor themselves, they quickly lose heart, as what use is a journal if you’re leaving out all the juicy bits.
This is where All My Journals comes in. It’s as simple as I could make it, contains only those features necessary for keeping a bare-bones journal, and addresses the issues outlined above so the user doesn’t have to.
There are no decisions to make regarding files and storage, as the software makes these for you. A single password can be set at the application level, meaning nobody can open the software or read your journals but you. All you have to concern yourself with is clicking the icon and writing.
