Journal 10+ -- Review & Giveaway -- Ends 9/14/12



Bloggers. We're writers. Journalists of our own news. Not everyone likes to write, of course, and for some, keeping a blog or journal can seem a daunting endeavour. But it doesn't have to be so. Sometimes, all you need is a few words. That's all. Just a few words that describe a moment in the day, an incident, a thought, a bit of advice.

You can do it.

Recently, I was given a wonderful opportunity to review a fabulous product called Journal10. This marvelous Journal is just a line or two for each day. No forbidding empty page to fill. It's also covers 10 years! Can you imagine the family history that can be recorded for future generations? That appeals to me as an Historian. I find it emotionally satisfying as well. It will connect me to grandchildren and great-children and so on down the line.


The book is soft-bound, light-weight, and not much bigger than my Bible. It has a very traditional, classic style. I love it.

What makes Journal 10+ different from other journals?

• Duration:
Journal 10+ holds up to 11 years of notes and memories in a single volume

• Ease of Use:
Just two minutes a day is all it takes to preserve your memories

• Durability:
Our Smythe-sewn binding and "leatherette" cover material are designed to last and look great for decades

• Format:
Looking back at prior year's entries on any date triggers wonderful memories

• Goals:
Annual pages for setting goals and reviewing/noting progress toward objectives

• Flexibility:
With eleven years in our book, no matter when you start using Journal 10+, you have the remainder of that year, plus 10 full years ahead

• Versatility:
Journal 10+ can be used as a journal, planner, organizer, record keeper or in any combination of uses

• Features:

Journal 10+ includes more convenient, time-saving features, such as:
• Address & phone book
• Special Dates section for birthdays and anniversaries
• Keeping Track section for tracking medical, auto and other ongoing records
• Carry-over pages for continuing longer entries than the daily pages will hold
• Two bookmarks to help you keep your place



The Journal10+ that I received began on January 1, 2012 and ends December 31, 2022! It will take me from 51 to 62 years old... and my daughter through her 20s, ending when she is 32. So much history... so many stories... tears, laughter... I can record them all in one place.

Key features of Journal10:

*As you make each entry you see what was happening on that day in previous years

*Re-reading triggers memories of people, place and events otherwise forgotten

*Captures personal and family development and milestones

*Takes just 5 minutes a day

*No pressure to fill a blank page

*Builds over time into a family memoir


I love this journal. There are Looking Ahead pages, Carry-over pages, an Address Book, Tracking pages for Meds. It's so well-thought out and so well arranged. Buy two. Trust me. Give one to someone you love -- you (and they) will cherish it.


I was so pleased when the wonderful folks at Journal10 generously offered one of my readers the chance to win a journal of their own. That's such a lovely gesture and I really appreciate it!

Just follow the instructions below to enter for your chance to enter to win!

OPEN TO USA ONLY, PLEASE. This contest will end at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 14, 2012


DISCLOSURE:
I received a Journal10+ for the purpose of review. I received no monetary compensation. The opinions expressed herein are my own and based on my own use of and experience with the item(s). Prize will be shipped to winner directly from the sponsor.

This is awesome! I have tried to start so many journals, but you are right about the empty pages. I end up writing a novel each day and then get burned out quickly and give up. I want to leave something for my kids so they know the real me and how much I love them and this would be great! Thank you for the chance to win!
