The nice thing about printed journaling (aside from not having to worry about how neat your handwriting is) is that you can fit quite a lot of text in a small space.
I’ve created a template in MSWord that’s sized to 4×6 with landscape orientation. I then insert a text box to type my journaling. A text box allows you to get text closer to the edges of the page than normal margins would allow.
You can keep the border on the text box (and/or do fancy things with it with some of the settings in Word) or you can remove the border. To remove the border, look under the “Shape Outline” menu and choose no outline.
You can also do things like change the fill color of the text box, which can allow you to get white text on a colored background. This can be a fun look for journal boxes or page titles, of course you do need a color printer for this technique to work.
I’m also a big fan of the fun true-type fonts you can get online for free. Installing them on a PC is as easy as double-clicking the font file, once you’ve downloaded it. You will see a preview of the font and the option to install it.
I’ve downloaded some great free fonts from the following sites:
By using a combination of hand journaling, handwritten or typed titles and typed digital journaling you can create pages that are simple, attractive and EASY to do.
