"I could use this..." - Anyone else think this?

I wish I could sit here and tell you that I write everything in a journal because pen and paper feel old-school dungeon master cool. But I can't say that. I keep everything on a computer program. There are a million computer programs for doing this job, but I find simple works best for this. I use a free program called Joplin. I have it on my computer and my phone and they sync up very well together.
Moved from Windows 10. What do you guys use for journal? Daily Diary?

How to build a second brain as a software developer
I didn't see it so I'm recommending it.
Use this with the encryption, sync to local filesystem, and with syncthing or similar and you can have an entire "second brain" tree of knowledge written in markdown. On your phone, on your laptop, pc at work, etc.... all for free because devs
I'm also a heavy Joplin user! It has amazing features like being able to sync with common file backup services (Dropbox, OneDrive, etc) and also has a decent Android app.
It is also opensource. https://github.com/laurent22/joplin/
Amazed it wasn't mentioned in this article.
I was disappointed that Joplin (https://joplinapp.org/) wasn't included in the app list.
Having used both Evernote and OneNote, I've found Joplin to be a better choice, especially when I'm bouncing between platforms. It doesn't lock you to a particular ecosystem or cloud service, and the open source app is free for use.
For what it's worth, I'm not affiliated with Joplin, I'm just a user.1 project | reddit.com/r/coding | 11 Nov 2021
I started doing this a few years ago with Joplin sync'd to my Nextcloud. I got tired of trying to copy notes from computer to computer. "Where did I write that snippet to do X again?"
Starting with Markdown

Obsidian is a good recommendation. I also recommend checking out logseq. It's a journal note taking app similar to obsidian. Supports both markdown and org mode and it's also open source unlike obaidian.

I have been using logseq (https://logseq.com/) for some time now and have been in love since I started using it. This one also looks interesting.
[Appfluencing] Logseq for notes + Obisidan for writing
1 project | reddit.com/r/Cortex | 19 Nov 2021
Maybe Grey at al. should consider taking a look at Logseq for notes and then keeping Obsidian for writing, I've found the combo to work quite good, even though Logseq is still in beta and under heavy development. It's an outlining tool, sort of "Notion meets Roam under Org-mode for Emacs".

There is Logseq (https://logseq.com/) although it is more oriented to recreate Roam.

Highly recommend LogSeq (https://logseq.com). It started out as very Roam-inspired, but with focus on actually supporting both Org and Md. It’s quite GUI-heavy with good shortcuts support.8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Nov 2021

1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Oct 2021
I am really impressed by how quickly logseq  has been developed; new releases every few weeks with exciting features that are (usually) actually working and improving workflow. And it's open-source. Hooray!
