Productivity - Note Taking and Notepad

Free, Free, Freemium and Commercial Windows, Web, Self Hosted and Chrome

  • Trailmix

    Commercial Web Website

    Want to know the hardest part about keeping a journal? Actually keeping one.

    Like most habits, it's easy for the first few days, but soon a lack of motivation or simple forgetfulness sets in.

    That's why we built Trailmix.

    Every day, Trailmix sends you an email asking how your day went. All you do is hit reply and start typing. When you're done, hit send, and your entry will be saved instantly.

    With every reminder email, we'll include one of your previous entries chosen at random. You might get one from yesterday, last week, or last year.

    This makes opening our emails fun! It's delightful to be reminded of your former thoughts and feelings. Even yesterday's entry can surprise you.

    This enjoyable feeling will encourage you to write more, so that future-you can enjoy reading today's entry.

    Before you know it, you're a daily journaler.

    Once you've built this habit, you get a tremendous payoff: the ability to look back over your life experiences. You'll notice patterns like "I always seem stressed on Wednesdays!" Or "Wow, I was so worried about that talk with my boss, but it turned out completely fine."

    Insights like these can have a profound effect on your happiness and behavior. We know, because we've experienced it ourselves.

    If you'd like to experience this too, you can sign up below.

    Trailmix costs $3.99/month, but it's free for 14 days. You can cancel at any time. If you're ever unhappy with the service, we'll refund your money.

    We charge for Trailmix because it costs money to run servers and fix bugs, but we're not in this to get rich. We're in it because we believe daily journalers are happier people and we want you to become one.

    If you're a former OhLife user, you can import all your old entries with two clicks.
