first of all: If my question should rather belong to another section of this forum please move it. Thanks.
I'd like to start my own journal. This is something the church is encouraging us to do. I know I could simply use a traditional paper journal. But I'd like to to it electronically. Any kind of an office software should do the job.
But I was also investigating some more advanced options, especially online. I found at leas two services that look promising: Penzu
Both services offer both a free and paid version and let you add pictures, videos and other multimedia objects to your journal.
I was wondering if anybody has any experience with an electronic journal. How do you do it? Have you tried different alternatives? What do you think is most important when doing a journal electronically? I'm grateful for any advice and help with this issue.
I might add that the most important thing for me is to have a journal that is protected - both against anyone spying on its content and protected against loss after I'm gone from this world (I know you can submit journals to the church). An online service could go bankrupt. All of my journal entries (maybe decades or more) will be gone in such a case. Of course I can do local backups (both services I mentioned let you download your entries as pdf, doc or some other format). If I keep a journal using a locally installed office software I'll be responsible for frequent backups as well.
So these are just some of the points I'm considering.
