Those are all legitimate reasons!  

In fact, we wrote about these and other comments we were hearing from our Journaling students in a recent post titled 7 Hidden Journaling Hurdles: Uncovering Why Many Hesitate to Start You're sure to see yourself in one of the 7 reasons we identified.

Whether you're a seasoned writer or someone who struggles to put pen to paper,  journaling is an invaluable tool for personal growth, reflection, and creative expression. And, with our downloadable one-page journal, you can start your journaling journey today with ease and simplicity!

What makes our one-page journal so special? Let's explore some of the benefits:

1. Multiple Opportunities in One Page: 

Our one-page journal isn't just a sheet of paper—it's a versatile tool that offers multiple opportunities for creativity and self-expression. 

Not only does it provide you with a space to jot down your thoughts and ideas, but it also serves as a pattern for making other simple journal structures. Imagine being able to fit your journal into your pocket or creating new journals out of paper placemats while waiting for your meal at a restaurant. 

With our one-page journal, the possibilities are endless! Keep your journal as a stand-alone or make others using the same technique. Create a collection, add your completed one-page journal to your existing journal like a pop-up, or put it in a folder mounted on the page.

2. Easy to Teach, Easy to Learn: 

Whether you're a seasoned journaling enthusiast or a newbie, our one-page journal is incredibly easy to use and teach. 

With just a few folds and a cut, you can create a multi-sided writing space to compartmentalize your thoughts and ideas. Plus, we provide a handy how-to video to guide you through the process, making it accessible for everyone, regardless of skill level.

We've taught this basic mini-book structure to elementary-aged children and graduate-level students and teachers. It's easy and simple for all skill levels and subjects and adaptable to become mini works of art.

3. Versatile and Convenient: 

Our one-page journal is designed to be pocket-sized and portable, so you can take it with you wherever you go. 

Whether you're traveling, commuting, or simply lounging at home, you'll always have a space to jot down your thoughts and unleash your creativity. And, because it's so compact, you can easily work it into any project.

It's truly adaptive. If you're starting with small note pages, they work.  If you have larger 11 x 17" or 18 x 24" paper, decorative printer paper, square scrapbook paper, or any remnants lying around, you can use the design and concept from this one-page journal.  You can use most weights of paper up to light cardstock.  The thicker paper can work but would require a tool like a bone folder to help make nice creases.  Silverware handles (the non-sharp parts) are a good tool if you're having a spontaneous one-page journal-making activity!
