Folks,

If anyone out here uses computer for writing their daily diary? If yes, do you think the notepad, word etc., suffice the requirement.

I am thinking of a personal diary writing software that can store daily entries into my mailbox (or any specified storage medium). It should be very aesthetic, light weighted, easily usable, works offline, additionally works in phone device etc.,

Is there a market ?

There are competitors, so we must think there's a market.

that field is also crowded. i have used sooo many of them: mempad, cintas, stickynotes, advanced diary, tiddly wiki, and so on.

and i finally returned to good old vim and text files. i'm a programmer after all.

I send emails to a trusted friend. Gets boring writing just for myself.

One tip is to Google it and see how many Adwords appear in the sidebar. If you see "More Sponsored Links" at the bottom, that's a good sign it's crowded.

For diary, there's the product below :

http://www.davidrm.com/ (I've nerver used it but this product has been around since a decade or so I believe)

Right now I'm looking at evernote.com for being able to consult my notes at any location (offline & online)

I can't tell you if there's a big market  for a diary solution,
but I guess if I was looking for one, I would certainly use a private blog such as wordpress ...
