Keeping a Journal with 21st Century Tools

Minneapolis, MN – May 31, 2007 -From Plato to present day, people have recorded their lives in personal journals. Today, Mariner Software unveils the release of WinJournal, integrated journaling, blogging, and podcasting software for Windows. WinJournal offers a new twist to traditional paper by using technology to incorporate digital photos and live web site links to journal pages. Easily post to online blog sites, such as Blogger, LiveJournal, WIndowsLive, or for those who prefer their privacy, WinJournal includes password protection and powerful AES-256 encryption. WinJournal also redefines full audio recording and podcasting. One can record thoughts as a journal entry or publish as a podcast. WinJournal is now available from the Mariner web site at

“WinJournal is a print journal for the 21st century,” said Mariner Software President Michael Wray. “Imagine recording voices of children or older relatives in a podcast, preserving their stories inside your WinJournal for generations to come. The ability to find words in any journal entry through WinJournal’s automated search feature, or linking old journal entries to new ones are substantial improvements to the traditional venue. Keeping a journal has long-term benefits, keeping a WinJournal provides a detailed and expanded perspective.”

From individuals recording their daily events, to classrooms communicating with schools around the world, to a homemaker posting her recipes or a business owner expressing political insight, now Windows users can enjoy the next generation experience of journaling, blogging, and podcasting.

Pricing has been set at $34.95 for the download version. The shipping version will initially be offered in English, however more languages will be added in the near future. System requirements include Vista, XP Pro or Home, NT Workstation, 2000, or 2000 Server.
