Completely addicted to @dayone … Now I can digitally chronicle my life easily and privately without the pressure of making it social

Rather than check in with the official Foursquare app, I use Day One to retain my own data in my journal, while still having the benefit of sharing public (or private) location / place checkins. I can even include a photo if I like. —Paul Mayne
The bigger reason I think I’m so into Day One is that tweeting has trained me to live not only performatively, but with a critical, reflective eye. So many of my “Ooh, I should tweet that!” moments I don’t actually tweet, either because I don’t think my audience would be interested, or because they just plain aren’t appropriate for Twitter (or anyplace else outside my own brain, for that matter). But with an outlet for them, those thoughts are captured.
