category focus : journal…


I’ve never kept a diary myself.  the commitment of writing something/anything everyday always seemed overwhelming and writing just the odd thought now and again seemed fairly pointless and would result in a book of mostly empty pages

every memory added to rewind needs tagging with one or more category (there are nine to choose from), which allows for content to be grouped and timelines viewed in various ways.  so adding a JOURNAL category on rewind was a deliberate choice rooted in the understanding that thoughts and emotions don’t always happen chronologically and we don’t always have something noteworthy to write every single day

having a private timeline to record the odd thought whenever inspiration strikes, either by typing, dictating or recording a voicenote, is now something that makes more sense to me.  it’s become a casual, now-and-again, pocket diary capturing my random thoughts on life, but at my own pace – no daily commitment

and if recording thoughts and feelings isn’t really your thing, the JOURNAL category is also somewhere to keep mini-diaries for significant personal events like pregnancies, diets, illnesses, fitness journeys, study progress, home improvements or other projects.  it can be somewhere to save meaningful quotes you see, or to record heartfelt or funny voicenotes on a child’s timeline, creating a treasure trove of audible content for their future selves to discover

rewind transforms the concept of journalling into an effortless but meaningful experience.  it recognises the natural flow of a busy life, allowing users to capture those moments whenever they occur, regardless of how frequently or infrequently they happen, or even how long ago they occurred
