FAQs—You’ve Got Questions, I’ve Got Answers (Good Ones!)

FAQs

WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS


FAQs — Frequently Asked Questions

 

Hi folks, Today it’s Q & As from your FAQs. There are a few things that newcomers might be wondering about (and I would be too, if I were a newcomer!). So here come those good answers I mentioned…

Q: I’ve noticed that JD Dyola Journalscome in sets—series of four—Why Is tHAT?

A: Excellent question! My signature 4–T series began with four volumes and, ever since then, every time there’s been a release I’ve simply continued the tradition. The interior and exterior of each volume in the first series was distinct; however,  with later series the interiors are the same. But I still offer four volumes to provide journal lovers with multiple cover options. You know the saying, “Different covers for different folks!”…Or maybe you don’t since that there was a JD original :-D.


Q: What does the Slogan “Books for you and by YOU!™” MEAN to you?

JD Dyola Journals ❤™ ⇒ Books for you and by YOU!™ Click To Tweet

 

A: All of my journals are for you and by YOU because I may give you a few tips, but no rigid rules. You decide whether you want to make entries at the start of your day, during it — as you are discovering something new — or as you wind down at its conclusion.


Q: Why is there a heart after JD Dyola Journals ❤™?

A: I try really hard to make each journal series as useful and functional as possible. A tremendous amount of love and energy goes into producing them for you. That’s what the ❤ represents. I hope that this comes through as you use them and make each one your own.

 

Q: I’ve Previewed Your Journals And I want to buy now, but some links take me to Amazon.com while other links go to the CreateSPace e-STORE—Does it Matter Whether I order my journal from one over the other?

A: Another phenomenal question! According to CreateSpace, “to better serve customers and improve the online buyng experience,” as of October 31, 2017, all the CreateSpace eStore links will redirect to their corresponding pages on Amazon.com. So since all links now lead to Amazon.com, it does not matter which links you use. 


Q: Are JD Dyola Journals green?

A:  Actually, no. While some are green in spots, we have a nice choice of colorful non-monochromatic covers. Oh wait, you meant eco-friendly didn’t you? Great question! I wondered that myself so I contacted my printer, CreateSpace (an Amazon company). Here’s the response that I received in March 2017:

“Thank you for contacting CreateSpace…. It is my pleasure to provide to you some information about our printing process.

Environmental consciousness is important to us as we continue to grow. As a manufacture on-demand company, we produce units only as they’re ordered, which reduces excess production. Our ink is chlorine-free, and our acid-free interior paper stock is supplied by an FSC-certified provider. While our laminated covers are considered a form of plastic, we currently offer a 55-pound (weight) off-set cream paper for black and white book interiors that is made from 30% post-consumer waste recycled material.

We maintain a commitment to recycling waste materials resulting from the printing process and from daily office operations, and we will continue to review our practices to ensure we are doing our part to protect the environment.”

 

Q: JD Dyola Journalssignature 4–T™ series stresses journaling daily, and I feel guilty. What If I don’t Journal every single day?

A: That’s fine! Just between you and me…journaling  every day is a goal that I aspire to as well. There are many days when I do not get to journal because of exhaustion, more pressing commitments, or not feeling like it. Therefore, please journal when you can, but without any shame or remorse.

My goal with the 4–T™ series is to encourage journaling, for its many benefits. So, if it’s your goal to make daily journaling a part of your life, the late great journaling master, Jim Rohn,  provides valuable advice in his audio presentation, How to Use a Journal, and in it Mr. Rohn admits that everyone who uses a  journal might not make daily entries (if the link to his audio no longer works please search YouTube for another).

Lastly, one of these posts (click here) might provide the incentive that you need to transition to—more frequent, guilt-free—journaling that works for you.

 

Well that ends the Q & A for today. As always, I appreciate your interest and support.

Thank you for journaling with me!
JD

Introducing the BEST JD Dyola Journals ❤™ yet! ⇒ AWIR–T™―The Bookworm Series

AWIR-T™—The Bookworm Series, Volume 1AWIR-T™—The Bookworm Series, Volume 2AWIR-T™—The Bookworm Series, Volume 3AWIR-T™—The Bookworm Series, Volume 4

WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS


New! AWIR–T™—The Bookworm Series

(AWIR–T™ = About What I Read…TODAY!—A Reading Companion Journal)

Hi folks, I’m delighted to introduce the best JD Dyola Journals ❤™ to date! I’ve worked feverishly to create AWIR–T™ spinoffs and this is the first set: The Bookworm Series (BW).

AWIR–T™ = About What I Read…TODAY! Click To Tweet

Since they’re spinoffs, the new AWIR–T™ journals serve the same function as the original AWIR–T™ of the 4-T™ “for TODAY” Journal Series. The primary difference between the 4-T™ AWIR–T™ journal and these spinoffs is the complete freedom you have without any AWIR–T™ fixed sections. As I always say, “Growth requires freedom!” However, for those who prefer more structure, I am planning an expanded AWIR–T™ with guidance sections. But first my plan is to release more Bookworm Series (BW) editions in French, German, and Spanish. Stay tuned for those editions, hopefully, in the next few weeks!* I’ve learned so much over the past few months and I’m putting my new-found knowledge on display in my new journals.

A Brief Tour of the  AWIR–T™ Bookworm Spinoffs

Each cover image that I’ve chosen epitomizes, what I believe are, qualities of the quintessential bookworm and see the image again opposite the copyright notice page: Volume 1, Carl Spitzweg’s famous painting “The Bookworm, Volume 2, Claude Raguet Hirst’s “The Bookworm’s Table”, Volume 3, the shelves of a bookworm who also has journals tied in bundles with various books, Volume 4, a nighttime bookworm’s table. Images for these last two journals are courtesy of Pixabay.

Introducing Bubba, MY Reading Goals, & MY TOP 20 READS

Finally, I’ve introduced totally new features like the journal loving bookworm character, I call Bubba (that’s him below). You’ll be seeing him, or one of his cousins, in other  journals soon. The inner cover shows Bubba carrying a stack of 20 books. Look for him as he “walks” through the journal eager to get to is favorite reading and journaling spot. Two other features: You can set a few goals on the My Reading Goals pages; and later in the journal, list your Top 20 Reads, which could be favorite books or the most significant books that have affected your life to date, etc. I hope that you enjoy using the new journals and share your opinion with me.

JD Dyola Journals ❤™ Books for you and by YOU!™

Books in AWIR–T™—The Bookworm Series (BW) are handy tools that encourage reflection on what you read each day—whether you journal throughout the day or at the day’s end. I’ve  found that journaling while I read helps me to save ideas that I can “chew on” later in the day or distant future. 

These BW journals are available now through the CreateSpace eStore (click here to find links on the AWIR–T™—BW page). Or click one of the book images above to preview the journal on my Amazon Author Page, using the “Look inside” feature which becomes available in 3-5 business days.

As always, I appreciate your support. Thank you for reading and journaling with me!
JD

Here’s a newsflash for ya: Life is HARD! How Journaling May Help!

WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS


Newsflash: Life is HARD!

Hi folks, It’s JD from JD Dyola Journals ™ with a bit of “news”: Life is HARD! In one of his famous presentations on goals,  the late great Zig Ziglar once said: “Life is not easy. Life is tough. But when you’re tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you.” Yes, life is also wonderful. The challenges help you to grow and become stronger. It’s every bit worth the struggle and all that, but sometimes life is just ROUGH! My mother used to say, “Whenever you ask yourself: ‘Why didn’t Mom ever tell me things were going to be like this?’ Just remember, Mom didn’t know!”

One way to get through the tough times is by journaling…

Life is Hard-Zig Ziglar

According to Experts Journaling Can Help

Susan David wrote a useful post on how journaling can help when life gets hard called You Can Write Your Way Out of an Emotional Funk. Here’s How.

Never Give Up!

A daily  journaling session can help you and me to avoid “stinkin’ thinkin’.” Sometimes, you don’t even realize how negative your thoughts are until they’re down on paper. When life gets really hard the temptation to give up on your goals might seem practical and reasonable. Don’t do it! Les Brown, another one of my favorite inspirational speakers says, “When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reasons get you back up!” Mr. Brown suggests that you have at least five (5) reasons why you will NOT quit when your goals seem harder than ever to reach.

“When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reasons get you back up!” —Les Brown Click To Tweet

By reflecting on the reasons that make all the hardships and disappoints worth it for YOU, you’ll be less likely to surrender. It’s great advice! Knowing your “why(s)” and having more than one “why” will keep you focused when someone steals the light bulb at the end of the tunnel!

Life is Hard -Les Brown

Wishing you your best year and best journaling ever,
JD
