Trailmix - A Private Place To Write

Want to know the hardest part about keeping a journal? Actually keeping one. Like most habits, it's easy for the first few days, but soon a lack of motivation or simple forgetfulness sets in. That's why they built Trailmix. Every day, Trailmix sends you an email asking how your day went. All you do is hit reply and start typing. When you're done, hit send, and your entry will be saved instantly. With every reminder email, they will include one of your previous entries chosen at random. You might get one from yesterday, last week, or last year. This makes opening their emails fun! It's delightful to be reminded of your former thoughts and feelings. Even yesterday's entry can surprise you. This enjoyable feeling will encourage you to write more, so that future-you can enjoy reading today's entry. Before you know it, you're a daily journaler. Once you've built this habit, you get a tremendous payoff: the ability to look back over your life experiences. You'll notice patterns like "I always seem stressed on Wednesdays!" Or "Wow, I was so worried about that talk with my boss, but it turned out completely fine." Insights like these can have a profound effect on your happiness and behavior. They know, because they have experienced it themselves. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
