OhLife: Diary That Comes to You

OhLifeWants to keep a diary but finds it difficult to write consistently? What about a diary that comes to you to be written on, every night, so that you won’t miss a single day?

OhLife does exactly this. After signing up, OhLife will send you an email every night at 8PM asking “How did your day go?“. Your reply to that email will be your diary entry of the day, automatically stored on OhLife’s website for your reading pleasure in future.

Too busy or just didn’t bother to login to read your entries? Fine. Your diary entry will come and look for you instead. In the same nightly email itself, OhLife will show a random diary entry you wrote in the past.

OhLife Example

If for any reason you wanted to stop OhLife from sending you the nightly emails, you can do so from the settings panel. The email delivery time will be fixed at 8PM every night, but you can manipulate this by changing your time zone setting.

You are free to delete or edit any entry you rather not keep. Export is available in .txt format.

    This is very interesting site. I’d love to give this one a try.

    I skipped two emails already. Guess diary is just not my thing 😀

    If you are just not in the mood to write, I guess the email reminders won’t help much. 🙂

    That’s true. Takes a bit of self discipline also to keep a consistent diary. I’m writing everyday now, though just a few short sentence.

    Would be valuable when you read it back years later, with the “those were the days” feeling :p

    I like the concept. Just a quick response to an email and you automatically update your diary. I think it would help keep your diary constantly updated even if they were shorter posts.

    You’re right. I only write a sentence or two, but hey, at least I write.

    I’ve been using Ohlife for about a year now and I turned off the email feature from the beginning, It’s more easy to go there and hit the write button in the past section whenever you feel. I love the cozy interface and wish Ohlife be there for ever. As I write in Persian I wish there was support for RTL (Right to left language) and Shamsi/Jalali calendar too.
