Day One Shared Journals

Day One just introduced a new, interesting feature: Shared Journals.

The idea is that you can share a journal. Multiple people could contribute. An individual’s entries are not editable by other participants, but it’s an excellent way to build a journal among friends and family.

This goes against the grain of journaling in that journaling is usually a very private thing. However, I see a use for this. I’ve already set one up with my wife, where we’re journaling our trips to Disneyland. It’s a way for us to create a record together, and it will be enjoyable. It has the added benefit that she is now regularly using Day One and is now doing more personal journaling that isn’t shared with me.

Overall, it’s a nice new feature, and if you’ve got loved ones also using Day One, I recommend giving it a try.
