What Day One Founder and Others Have Said About This Book:

Bakari has done an amazing job introducing the values of daily journaling and using the Day One app. He's captured countless details and instructions on how to best embrace this digital tool to create an invaluable personal archive. I highly recommend Starting from Day One for anyone that wants to learn the whys and how's of digital journaling.

Just to let you know that I’ve just finished reading through the book and would like to congratulate you on an amazing piece of work! I found the book and all of its chapters extremely comprehensive and consider it to represent a valuable resource. I see the book as a reference tool that doesn’t have to be read in strict chronological order but as a resource that can be revisited from time to time.

Bakari continues to be a voice I respect for ideas, inspiration, and pragmatism in journal-keeping rituals. I’m thrilled he has shared a small section of his brain with us in these pages. His book makes a strong case for the practice of journal-keeping generally, while also treating us with additional tips and know-how for taking advantage of the benefits of digital journaling.
