Social Logging & Day One

I am starting to really get used to journaling now with the help of Day One and Brett Terpstra amazing ruby script called Slogger.

Ok now nobody panic, it all sounds complicated but it’s not just follow Bretts guide and you will be set up in about 15 minutes.

Start by following The Slogger set up guide at the above link. But there is a workflow to complete after that.

This is my workflow for this.

  1. Set Up Slogger file in Documents and mark it with a colour code for easy finding in the future
  2. Create a workflow this I smile below, not great but it works for me.


  1. Set up a Hazel rule to run at 23:50 every night, this is my rule


  1. And every run you will get your social media feeds from Twitter, Miso, WordPress, Last FM and so on. Here is an example from my Day One journal

Testing Macjournal

I want to keep on using Day One but I am getting frustrated that I cannot get my Busycal entries to import automatically very annoying.

So I am going to try to use Macjournal alongside Day One as a journaling tool
