I ended up wanting to build an app on how journaling can become a habit. I hacked my own journaling workflow by creating an email reminder in jotform and opening up a form to input my daily journal. That form then sends the journal entry to evernote and email. It's far from a perfect workflow but that is the hack that keeps me consistent journaling on an (almost) daily basis.
I'm thinking if this works for me maybe it can work for other people also? At the very least if it only works for me, I can create a product and better workflow for my own use :D
