The Journal, The Wonderful Journal
The Journal is an elegant Windows program for personal journal writing, record keeping, social networking, creative writing, and whatever other purpose you might conjure up. It’s the most versatile, customizable writing program I’ve tried. You can post to your blog directly from it, you can password protect it, you can decorate it, you can insert images, etc… Whatever you can think of, it can do right now, or will do in the next version. David Michael, the programmer, is constantly at work tweaking The Journal, adding new capabilities (just when you think there are no more capabilities to be added) and communicating with Journal users who ask questions, make suggestions, or simply want to tell him how they use The Journal.
I’ve tried several other notable writing programs. I used to like Life Journal, but poor support drove me away.
Blogging tools like Windows Live Writer are useful, but The Journal includes the functions of Live Writer, plus much more.
The Journal is not yet available for Mac, but you could certainly install Windows on your Mac using Boot Camp or Parallels, and then put The Journal on it (which is what I plan to do when I buy my first Mac, one of these days.)
Try it free for forty-five days:
For the record, I am not in any way connected to David Michael, nor do I benefit when someone clicks on the link to The Journal from my blog. I simply love the program and want to endorse it.
