That being said: I'm a HORRIBLE journaler.
The basic problem is that I forget to do it. I haven't made it a positive habit in my life yet, and for whatever reason, it's just not something that I've found a good method to make myself do it.
That is, until now. Introducing OhLife. OhLife is a journaling website. It's totally private, no one else can read your journal unless you give them your password. And here's the best part: it sends you an email every day at 8:00 pm (adjusted for your time zone), and all you have to do to enter in your journal for that day is reply to the email.
Couldn't be simpler, could it? You can opt out of the daily emails if you want, and that's pretty much the only setting you need to worry about on the page. And as you start getting more content in your journal, OhLife will send you snippets of your old journal entries as well - occasional reminders that you ARE making progress in your goals and what you were feeling about things at any point in time.
I'm setting up my Gmail account to text me when I get that email each day, so that I remember to get to my email and do it. And of course, since I'm not ever without my iPod Touch, I can always write an email, even if I'm on the go.
What a great application for personal development. I can see this being one heck of a valuable tool!
