    "I feel this is a pretty good solution for my online journaling. The homepage is well laid out and i can navigate around it using the tabs at the top. This site allows me to keep my journal, edit it in a myriad of ways and, if i'm divulging my deepest darkest fantasies, i can be content in the knowledge that my work is secure and encrypted. Overall, i feel this is a good solution to my problem."

    "I've been very interested in getting into online journaling for quite a long time. I've read a lot about online journaling and the different blogs people have used in the past to chronicle their lives. Penzu matches up with a lot of these other sites but the presentation looks a lot more pleasant. The site has been a pleasure to use and I am glad I found it."

    "There's various writing prompts that tickle the mind with thoughts that encourage independent thinking. I think journaling is a fantastic way to learn and I love how this book has utilized journaling to teach independence. It could have been just a textbook or a self help guide book, but no. This book is engaging and facilitates active learning."

    "I love to journal and sure I knew that there were many blog platforms out there for free, but I wanted something different and I wanted something unique. I wanted a platform that was dedicated and tailored to journalist like myself that gave me the tools and the elements to share my work with the world in an easy and effective way. Prosebox allows me to do that in an anonymous way and it also allows me to create many different journals for my varying interests as well. A lot of websites make it very difficult to do journalism on the go as they are difficult to use on a mobile device, but Prosebox has you covered there and their interface is very easy to use on a mobile phone. I don't have to worry about formatting no matter what device I use and the interface makes it easy to edit and add to my journal with no problem."

    "I've been thinking about getting into online journaling for a long time. I perused the internet testing out various platforms before I ended up going with LiveJournal. Livejournal is a well-known journaling site that has a huge community since it is been out for a long time. The lengthy age makes it more trustworthy then other sites, the platform has had years of development to make it super user friendly and the expansive community makes it hard to get bored."

    "I love to write. But I don't always know what to write, or when, or even sometimes how. A friend gave me Joyce Chapman's Journaling for Joy: Writing your Way to Personal Growth and Freedom, and I can honestly say it's changed my perspective to journaling. The book gives me clear and easily executable ways to connect with my emotions and to record the events, experiences, and sensations of my life."

    "The tips and suggestions developed by the author in Journaling for Joy: Writing Your Way to Personal Growth and Freedom seem well-intentioned and come from a direction of positivity. However, I found the book to have too many unnecessary rules that seemed to stifle my need for creativity. Moreover, I did not find it to be very helpful as a resource for getting me started in online journaling."

    "I started online journaling not too long ago. It can be overwhelming at first, despite how simple it seems. I found that this website, Journaling for Joy can help you with some good tips and put you in the right mindset for productive writing. Like I said, I'm fairly new still but it has done a lot and I have learned a lot about myself in the process."

    "I have recently been interested in journaling and I wanted to share my journals with my family that lives out of state. I tried Travel Diaries and I was disappointed with the website. The interface was easy to use but there is not enough customization available. Everything looks carbon cut and there is no way to make it truly unique with my flair for creativity. I want more freedom and less restriction."

    "I love Journalate! I've kept a diary since I was very young but it's amazing how much room those notebooks take up. Plus if I want to write when I'm not home I have to tote it everywhere with me. I enjoy journaling online and this site is great. It's private which is important to me, I'm writing for me not for a blog, and it's very convenient to access it from wherever I feel like writing. Best of all it's free. I love how this type of technology makes my life easier!"
