We know life moves fast.

We know the demands placed on you just may not allow for time to sit down and record the details of your day – or even your week! We know that, given a few spare moments, you’d much rather spend that time living than writing about living. That’s where we come in. We want you to be able to preserve your history while you’re creating it! TextMyJournal is journaling reinvented – it’s quick, easy and convenient – and more than that, it’s helpful and encouraging! We motivate you to keep a consistent record of your most precious moments.

So how does it work?

Journal at the beach

TextMyJournal isn’t just a dropbox for a few words – it’s much more than that.  

Just like our current customers, you’ll love texting your journal to preserve your everyday memories.

TextMyJournal allows you to capture all the defining moments of your life.

I like that I don’t feel the pressure to fill an entire page like I would in a traditional journal. I also like that I can journal any time and any where because I always have my phone with me.

Its easy and simple. Can’t get any easier than this.

I love it. I knew that it would be handy and that I’d like it but I’m surprised how much I not only appreciated it but really enjoyed journaling by text.

I like that it’s a daily reminder, in a simple and unobtrusive way.

Have Questions?

We’ve got answers.

Is my journal private?

Yes! No more worrying about hiding your journal under your bed. When you sign up, you’ll get a link to your online journal. You can choose to lock it with a password, or leave it unlocked. It’s similar to a shareable Dropbox link. If you give someone the link, they can view the page. However, there are no links TO it online, so no one can find your journal by searching the internet.

What if a text is more than 160 characters?

While we sure control a lot of things, we can’t control the nature of text messages, and that can all vary dependent upon your provider.  To that end, if your memory (and thus, your text) is rather long, change it to MMS (multimedia message).  Those have 1000 characters instead of 160, and that way you can always remember your memory in the order it actually happened!

How much does it cost?

After the free trial period, TextMyJournal costs $10 per month.

Why Text? Why not an app?

There are a few reasons, really. First of all, we want this service available to everyone with any phone with texting capabilities, not just a smart phone. Dumb phones are more than welcome!

Second, we don’t want your journal to be dependent on WiFi or storage space.  Funny thing, memories – they show up whenever they’d like, completely disregarding WiFi availability and storage limits.

Do I need to put a date on my entries?

Nope! We’ve got that covered for you! Each text includes the date and time it was sent, so all you’ve got to remember is the important stuff – the details.  The rest is provided by us. You’re welcome.

Can I send pictures of my cat? He's the best cat.

Awww, I bet he is! Not yet, but soon! Currently we only support text entries, but soon you’ll be able to deck out your journal with photos, videos, and audio files! 

When and where can I access my journal?

Whenever you want! If you want to relive a special moment, capture the details of something you can’t recall, or even just share your memories with someone else, just go to the link you were sent when you signed up!

Do I have to wait for the prompt to text my journal?

No! Memories don’t wait until we send you the go-ahead to send them out! You can text whenever you’d like. Do you regularly get prompts at 9 pm but you just woke up after having the strangest dream? Text it right away. And don’t worry – you’ll still get the reminder at 9!

How many texts can I send per day?

11 times (15 – (.4 times 2.5 raised to the fourth power)) divided by the fifth root of 32

Just kidding. Send as many as you want! Mix it up while you’re at it! Send a quick message, 3 pictures, and a video to remember how awesome your day was. There is no limit to your journaling!

What if my phone falls in a lake?

First off, bummer. I hope the fish have good service and don’t make any international calls.

If you get a new phone number, just log into your account settings and change your phone number. Because we care so much about your security and keeping your secrets ‘secret’, you’ll have to do more than send out a Facebook request for our number.
