LifeJournal™ Newsletter – July 2008

I’m leaving for a family vacation soon and therefore I’m sending this newsletter earlier than usual this month. Vacations offer a chance to get out of my everyday perspective and widen my mindset. I’m looking forward to that shift.

The first article answers a question that many people have asked about: Can LifeJournal run on an Apple computer? Although LifeJournal doesn’t run natively on the Mac, there are several viable ways to run LifeJournal on newer Mac computers. I recently purchased a Mac and I am running LifeJournal on it without a problem.

The second article addresses a question that a customer posed: What’s the best way that you can use LifeJournal to keep a continuous entry on a particular subject? Read the article for a detailed explanation and some examples for ways to accomplish this.

Wishing you the best on your adventures wherever they are. Keep writing!
