Why can I only add three photos per entry?

Our goal at Bonjournal is to help you preserve your memories in beautifully packaged online journals. We feel that three, well-curated photos will complement your entry more effectively than an album-ful of pictures. If you’d like to post more photos on Bonjournal, we suggest you create multiple entries.

How do I make an entry private?

When you are in the entry form, turn the Privacy Lock ON. A private entry can only be read and accessed by you.

What is an addendum entry?

An addendum entry serves as an afterthought or reflection of your day. Limited to one per day, an addendum has no timestamp or location, and appears at the bottom of a page.

What is a starred item?

When you star an entry or journal, that item is saved to your Starred Items page, which you can easily access through the Star tab in the top navigation bar. This is especially helpful if you are using your friend’s journals to plan your own trip.
