    After writing journals on the paper for 6 years, I decided to make a website that people can write a journal on their computers, cellphones, and tablets for free.

    WordPress and those great plugins made my job so much easier and faster. I like to say thank you to WP team and plugin authors for sharing all your hard works for free.

    Feel free to check out my online journal website and leave any comments or suggestions.

    Hi satty005, thank you for the comment.In order to make journal private, I had to go with mandatory registration. I would love to take any suggestions for this issue to get around without mandatory registration.
    Thank you :) have a great holiday!

    It's a nice idea, and the site looks very clean and visually appealing.

    I am interested on how you are going to deal with the problem of people using it for spam/advertising purposes instead of a journal though.
    i.e. if you go to 'read public journal' the fourth or so post down is this: http://www.goodnightjournal.com/2013/05/06/split-system-airconditioner-repair-in-melbourne/

    If you get too much of that then I think it will put a lot of people off.

    While you acknowledge how you were benefited from open source, don't you feel that you too have to give it back? How about making it open source? Otherwise, it looks like advertising a proprietary item. Don't you think so?
