Keeping a journal is easy enough – you can create a text file for every day and then edit the file to record the day’s events. But if you want to add other forms of media into the entries and if you want things to be more organized, you should go for an app called RedNotebook.
RedNotebook is a freeware desktop utility for Windows computers. The application comes in a setup file that is sized at nearly 20 MB which you download and install. The function of the application is to let you easily keep a daily journal. But unlike other applications that might allow only simple textual entries, RedNotebook is far more flexible in the formats of inputs it accepts.
When you open the app, you will find a calendar on which you can click any date to add a journal entry. The right pane is where you write. You can add special formatting to your text through the app’s options. You can also easily add pictures, files, URLs, lists, breaks, and the time within your journal entries.
Tags can be added to any new entries you make. These tags can be searched for and the popular ones appear in the bottom left pane of the application. In case you want to have an overview of all of your entries or perhaps just one of them, you can access the app’s statistics section where you are shown the number of words, lines, and letters for your entries; you can also see what percentage of days you had been recording entries in the journal.
