It’s a new year which means, for many, time to make new year’s resolutions. I am not usually one who likes to make resolutions for the new year. Probably because I know I will only stick to them for a couple weeks at most.
This year is different, though. This year I want to try keeping up with a journal. I don’t want to do it alone, though. I would love to experience this journey with my fellow “Squadettes”. That is why I’ve decided to put together the Planner Squad Journal Challenge.
If you think about it, our planners are like a journal in itself. Raise your hand if you like to keep your old planners, and flip through them to reminisce on what your life was like at that particular moment in time.
I know many of us planner girls do just that. That is why I thought hosting a journal challenge right here within our Planner Squad would be full of fun, inspiration, and accountability.
Planner Squad Journal Challenge
How does the challenge work exactly? Well, basically Squadettes (such as yourself) will sign up to participate in the challenge by filling out the form below (keep reading, it’s at the bottom of the post).
Once you sign up, you will start receiving weekly challenge emails. These emails will guide you to a password protected page with that particular week’s journal prompt.
Of course, you can write more than once a week if you’d like. Some may even prefer to write in their journals daily. We thought that having weekly versus daily prompts will help make keeping your journal seem less overwhelming.
Why Would I Want to Keep a Journal?
Journaling is so good for the soul. It’s a way to put your feelings onto paper, and for many, express their creativity in a very personal way.
Many like to keep journals to pass on to their future children, grandchildren, and so on. There’s nothing more priceless than a record of your loved one’s outlook on life. It’s like having a very special piece of your own history, preserved in a very personal record.
Others prefer to journal simply for themselves. It’s a way for them to vent their frustrations, reflect on some of their fondest memories, or share their deepest worries and concerns. It’s also a creative outlet for many.

Sign up for the Challenge
The great thing about this challenge is that there is no designated start or end time. It is designed to send the email prompts in order, starting from the beginning, no matter when you sign up.
That’s right – you can jump in at any time, and will never be behind! The challenge will continue until we either run out of ideas (not likely with Amy the idea master)
To start receiving weekly challenge emails, simply fill out the form below. Once you confirm your subscription, you will receive the first challenge email. The challenge emails will continue to hit your inbox each week with a new challenge to tackle.
