Day One Publish

I was really excited about DayOne’s publishing feature, when it launched. And I still like it, a lot. There are a lots of good blogging platforms out there; Squarespace, WordPress, Tumblr, Jekyll. And you have excellent platforms for sharing stuff; twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, Instagram etc.

But there aren’t any other solutions to what DayOne have done with Publish. It’s a service that is between your journal, twitter and blog. I love having everything important to me in DayOne. I can just browse there and find stuff that means a lot to me.

There are a few things I have used Publish for. And I have some ideas for what Publish is good for.

  • Writing letters. I have done this once, and I’m going to do it again. I wrote a letter in DayOne, to have it there. Then I published it, and shared the link.

  • Pictures and text. The core of DayOne is writing and pictures. And Publish is a great feature to share them with your frinds or family.

  • Anything written that you just want to share with a limited audience.

The great thing about Publish is that it’s like a private blog or twitter. Everything is private, that’s the default. And then they added Publish. You can share that one thing with that person or group. I love using twitter and this site. But there are thing that don’t belong in the public, and publish is my “blog” or “twitter” for that content.
