I announced it on Twitter a while back but wanted to do something a little more official, hence this blog post.
Say hello to Jotting Journal. A private web based (or “cloud based” if you’re into buzz words) online journal. This web application is meant to be a place where you can log your private thoughts and do so in a more cross platform manner than some of the other more popular journal-ing applications out there.
I decided to go all out and make this a straight pay service. I’m charging $36 per year and you get the first 30 days free to decide if you like the product or not. Don’t like it, simply cancel your account and you won’t be charged a thing.
Right now it’s entirely web based but it utilizes Twitter Bootstrap’s “responsive” (I hate this word) design elements. Though the responsive design hasn’t been 100% tweaked yet, it works nicely on mobile devices like iPads and smartphones.
I’ll be spending a good part of the rest of the year to tidy up the web UI a bit and add some small features here and there (like the recently added Markdown support). Then, next year I will focus on building some mobile and desktop applications for it. I’ll begin by focusing on Android and iOS devices. But I’m hoping that by the end of next year I’ll have a suite of applications you can use to update, edit, and review your journal.
So feel free to give Jotting Journal a try. I hope you enjoy it.
