I was just wondering how many new users have started using Diarium at the beginning of 2023? Welcome!
- Say hello.
- Where are you based?
- Are you new to journaling/keeping a diary or are you switching from another app?
- How do you use Diarium and what do you want to get out of using it?
I'll go first:
I'm based it South Wales, UK. It's very wet and soggy here at the moment — not the brightest start to the new year, but we're kind of used to wet weather. It's what keeps our country so green and makes our waterfalls so impressive!
I've been journaling since 2008 and have been using Diarium for nearly four years now.
Aside from a place to work through all my thoughts, my main use of Diarium is as a central place for all my memories.
Life is hectic and becoming a first-time father in 2022, the year went faster than any in my life. Thankfully, I used Diarium every day to capture what happened, my thoughts, and photos.
Approaching my mid-forties, my memory is not what it used to be, so any time I have memories pop into my head from the distant past, I pop them in Diarium as well (it may be the last time I remember them) .
Looking back over entries for the previous year gives me clarity over the blur of memories in my head. I also love scrolling through in the attachments view and seeing all the photos from the year.
