If you have been procrastinating on writing a daily journal, OhLife might just persuade you to get started. That’s because it makes the process too easy to not do it. It sends you an email every night asking how your day was, and you need to reply to it. That is it. No going to the site, logging in and writing the journal. An email reply is all it takes.

writing a daily journal

The email, as you see in the first screenshot above, also has a random past entry. The user interface is clean and neatly designed. There’s a settings screen where you can select your time zone and whether or not you want to receive the email. They’ll email you at 8 PM everyday, something you cannot change at the moment.

    I've been using OhLife for 2 weeks now and it's great. The emails really keep me writing every day. I always make sure to write an entry, no matter how late it is or how short it might be.

    Whenever you submit feedback, they almost instantly respond. The developers are very prompt and courteous.

    Having landed here from the Daileez on line diary write up all I can say is that this looks beautiful enough to use with pleasure and I'm off to try it right now. If only more developers had design skills like this. Less is more, keep it simple ... like these guys have.I like it even more now I've seen that "Only you can see your entries" and I don't have to jump through hoops to retain my privacy.

    Post Script : It will even better when it works ;?_?

    Thanks for the kind words! In the near future, you'll be able to change the time the email is sent, attach a photo to your entry, and more.
