Hey there, gorgeous.


Welcome to the site. I’m so glad you made it.

So you’re interested in journaling. Well, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, this site has everything you need for guidance and inspiration.

Allow me to give you the grand tour.

Who am I, anyway?

First, let me introduce myself.

My name is Kristin and journal writing saved my life.

I’m a writer by trade and I’ve been journaling daily for more than two decades. I created this site so everyone can enjoy the benefits of this amazing practice.

When I’m not journaling, I like to run up hills, read social psychology books and ride my Vespa in the rain. If you’re curious, you can read more about the site, my mission and me.

Start journaling

Let’s get you started with your new journaling life.

As an introduction, I suggest listening to Podcast #1: Get Started Journaling. All the podcasts are full of encouragement – like a private peptalk from me to you. Plus the theme music is really fun. Listen to them on the site or subscribe through iTunes.

My guide How to Journal in 10 Simple Steps is the perfect way to get started. This section of the site is a friendly introduction to the nuts and bolts of keeping a journal. The guide includes a step-by-step process for creating your own journal practice. It will also direct you to other helpful posts on the site for further exploration.

If you want the luxury guided tour for journaling, check out my eBook, 30 Days to a Journaling Life. It’s only 9 bucks!

Keep Journaling

Already journaling regularly? Keep up the stellar work.

Perhaps it’s time to try something new. Visit the journal prompts area, where you’ll find a treasure trove of stimulating fresh ideas and helpful tips. Also check out my eBook, 30 Days to a Journaling Life, for some new writing exercises.

If a creativity boost is what you need, head over to the Art Journals and Creativity corner, where you’ll find posts art journals, visual journaling and other topics to get the juices flowing. This is a great section for getting your hands dirty. In a good way.

Have a look at my recommended Journaling Resources for journaling book reviews and recommended products. While you’re there, you’ll witness my dreadful case of paper lust, too. (Symptoms include: uncontrollable gushing over notebooks, lengthy discussions of paper textures, and collecting of journals without intent to write in them.)

The journaling interviews section is full of inspiration. It contains interviews with your fellow journalers and links to websites you’ll love.

So that’s the site in a nutshell. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope to see you around the site again soon!
