I’ve been using Day One sporadically for the past year or so, but I’ve been trying to integrate a daily journaling habit into my nighttime routine. With that has come some interest in automating Day One with IFTTT, which is a feature that I hadn’t explored until tonight.
So far I’ve setup a couple of applets in IFTTT — one that creates a new entry whenever I like an article in Instapaper and another that creates an entry every time I publish here on Initial Charge. I’m not sure how much value this will add to Day One, but I’m optimistic. I’m hoping that having a single repository for everything I create will lead to some niceties. For example, the “on this day” feature becomes much more useful when you create entries more consistently.
