Digital Journal programs

Postby zabaki » Sat Jun 20, 2009 6:32 am

Hey,

As a returned missionary, who just got back, I was wondering if any LDS know of any smart program that i could use to keep up my journal writing.

I use the computer for so much, that i could see the smart in having a digital journal.

You can do an Internet search using the key words 'digital personal journal' and find some programs that vary from free to others that cost up to $39. At this Windows Vista sitea few are reviewed. I don't personally use any of them. I use my word processing program to do journalling.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

Blogging tools like Wordpress loaded locally

You can load Wordpress locally. I am assuming this is personal stuff that you do not necessarily want to share with the world. The nice thing about it is the export to RSS feed if you ever want to move the entries from one system to another or make some of them public.

This is another option and one that I have used in the past. It has some nice features.

If you're a Mac user there is ViJournal. This also has an iphone client and two way synch.

It has other features as well but I haven't fully explored them all yet.

If you use linux, searching the gentoo portage tree gives me: xournal (keep journal with a stylus) and rednotebook (powerful, fancy journal program). It looks like both of those will run on windows too.
