Signing up for a new service is always a little intimidating, especially when you have no idea what to expect. To help clear up any confusion, we’ll be offering a series of posts to help explain what to expect from TextMyJournal!

What to expect – The Texts

Step 1:

Each day, at a time you specify, you’ll receive a text, just like you would from a friend!
(Note: this will look different depending on the type of phone you have!)


You can choose to receive a randomized text prompt, or you can personalize it.

Step 2:

Reply back via text to “journal.”
(Note: You don’t have to wait for the prompt to journal. You can send a text any time day or night, whether or not you’ve received the prompt that day!)


The texts you send are stored securely on a private server, but you can access them at any time by downloading the .csv file from your dashboard screen. You can text pictures and video if you’d like, or just words like the example above.

Step 3:

Continue on with your day!

You’ll get a text confirming your journal was received. You’ll only get one confirmation text a day, regardless of how many journal entries you send.
