Keeping an Emojiary


We all know that keeping a personal journal is pretty good both to for our writing and to help clarify the mind and spirit, but that it also takes a effort to keep a journal regularly. To help with that, Albert Lee designed the Emojiary app: a diary one can fill with just… emoji! As James Hamblin explains over at the Atlantic:

This is all meant to conjure a daily moment of cathartic introspection, of candid self expression. The name is a portmanteau of emoji and diary. The concept is a portmanteau of loneliness and connection, or emotional illiteracy and anarchy. The bot encourages you to communicate in emojis, but you can also add words.
