Pleased to make your acquaintance!

Welcome to JD Dyola Journals™—Books for you and by YOU!™

 

Hi folks! Thanks for your visit and interest. I’m delighted to make your virtual acquaintance. You’re probably here because you’re interested in journaling and want to know more about JD Dyola Journals ❤™. If, however, you’ve never even heard of JD Dyola Journals ❤™ please continue reading. You’ll also want to check out our Previews page for an idea of what we have to offer, and the FAQs page for even more info.

Let’s get better acquainted…

In fact, let me take this opportunity to personally introduce you to JD Dyola Journals ❤™ because now is a great time to start journaling with us! With the 2018 addition of My Journal, My Journey, My Color: JD Dyola’s Celebration of Color Collection™, there are now 100 JD Dyola journals from which to choose in 25 series and four (4) groups of JD Dyola Journals ❤™ that are completely different from one another:

GROUP 1: The 4-T™ “for TODAY” Journal Series (see sample below), the 4-H™ “por HOY” Spanish Editions (based on the 4-T™ series), and the 4-T™ Spinoffs (e.g., WIL–T™ Spinoffs and AWIR–T™ Spinoffs) support learning, reading, gratitude, and personal development. Each of these journals has a Thought Index™ to help you find specific entries quickly;

GROUP 3: New & improved, now with JD Dyola’s signature Thought Index™ and a Notes section! The Celebration of Life Collection™ (CoL) journals, without the quotes or regular prompts contained in Groups 1 & 2, are ideal for writing your own book or story. If you wish, fill-in the blank “Dedication,” “Acknowledgments,” and “About the Author” sections, since you are the author. And if not—say you just got the journal because you liked the cover—skip those pages and use it like any other journal. Finally, we’re super excited to announce that not only have all the covers and interiors been updated in some way, but CoL also has a new series: In Celebration of Flowers—Tulips!; and

GROUP 4: NEW! The Celebration of Color Collection™ (CoCLR) journals. Of all four groups, these are the closest to traditional journals except they have JD Dyola’s handy dandy Thought Index™ and a Notes section. There are 7 series: Journaling in…Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo or Violet. Additionally, as with all of JD Dyola’s series you have a choice of four books, or in this case shades, which graduate from dark to light. In other words, with the exception of the Indigo series in each CoCLR set, Book 1 is generally the most intense form of the color and Book 4 the lightest (most noticeable in the band that contains the title).

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

*Note: August 29, 2017–I started work on these and then my family had several crises to deal with so these are on the back burner for now. I’ll keep you updated though.

Changes to the 4-T™ Series & New Journals Planned for 2016!

 

Welcome to JD Dyola Journals


The New 4-T™ “for TODAY” Series

Changes WIL-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2          Changes AWIRT_Front Cover         Changes WIG 4-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2         Changes WAW 4-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2

Hi folks,

Today’s post is about recent changes and updates to the 4-T™ journal series and some of the new JD Dyola Journals ❤™ planned for 2016!

Please click on the links below to open the page about that journal.

WIL-T: What I Learned…TODAY! (Volume 1 – A Learning Journal in the 4-T “for TODAY” Series)

AWIR-T: About What I Read…TODAY! (Volume 2 – A Reading Companion Journal in the 4-T “for TODAY” Series)

WIG 4-T: What I’m Grateful for…TODAY! (Volume 3 – A Gratitude Journal in the 4-T “for TODAY” Series)

WAW 4-T: The Combo Journal—What I Learned, Read & Appreciated…TODAY! (Volume 4, Volumes 1-3 Combined)

 

Changes, Changes, Changes

Since the 4-T™ project was my first book series I wanted it to be as great as possible, but I had to stop working on it at some point and release it. Therefore, even though there were still adjustments that I wanted to make, I stuck to a self-imposed deadline and released the books on schedule. Consequently, even though I have other journal projects I want to work on, I took a few days to go back and make some improvements. The result…completely redesigned covers for WIL‑T: What I Learned…TODAY! and WAW 4‑T: The Combo Journal—What I Learned, Read, & Appreciated…TODAY!. I’d love to hear what you think! Please leave a comment below.

Daily Goals

The 4–T™ series is really about growth. Regardless of the journal(s) you choose, how about we all make it our goal to read each day, learn something new every day, and express gratitude throughout our days, let’s grow in some way. Are you with me?

New Series Planned

Finally, I plan to introduce several new journals that essentially spring from the  4-T™ concept and several others. As always, I truly hope you’ll love using them!

Keep growing & journaling,
JD

UPDATE | September 12, 2017: Well, I was a bit ambitious in what I planned for last year to say the least! We did release several new journals that “essentially spring from the  4-T™ concept.” In fact, 20 of them—no small feat! The other concepts still need work. So all I can say is that they’ll be released as soon as they are ready. Thanks for your patience and support!

BIG NEWS: JD Dyola’s UPDATED 4-T™ “for TODAY” Series ROCKS!

Have you heard the news? The New & Improved 4-T™ “for TODAY” Journal Series is here!

 

NEWS: WIL-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2NEWS: AWIR-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2NEWS: WIG 4-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2 NEWS: WAW 4-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2

 

Welcome to JD Dyola Journals ❤™


BIG NEWS!

Hi folks,

I’ve got exciting news…the journal series that started it all is now new & improved. This is BIG! Never heard of the 4-T™ “for TODAY” Journal Series (or JD Dyola for that matter)? Not to worry, click here and here to learn more…then please come back and continue reading.

I’m working on updating the pages, images, and links that correspond to the 4-T™ Journal Series. I appreciate your patience—this HTML stuff is not cooperating TODAY!*

So for now, until Amazon updates its lovely “Look inside” feature with the new & improved journal images, please click on the image block above. This will take you to my Author Page on Amazon.com and there you will see the new covers larger and clearer. Admittedly, now when you click on the individual journals from there they do show the original covers (see below), but hopefully this is only temporary. Save for AWIR-T which looks pretty much the same, the covers and introductions are greatly improved. I believe that you now have better journals to use today and every day. I strive to give you my best with each journal concept. I’m thrilled with the results. I LOVE the updates and hope you will too!

JD

The original 4-T™ Journal Series:

Learning Journal_WIL-T_C Stamp Reading Journal_AWIR-T FRONT Cvr_C Stamp Gratitude Journal_WIG 4-T FRONT Cvr_C Stamp Combo Journal_WAW 4-T FRONT Cvr_C Stamp

Here’s an excerpt from a post this past June, when the books were initially released:

“Until recently, I use to put all my thoughts & experiences into one all-purpose notebook, now I’ve discovered just how worthwhile it is to have a dedicated tool. For instance, a journal exclusively for commentary on what I’m reading or solely for gratitude. Grouping similar ideas in this way aids in focusing the thought process, and is helpful for current/future reference.

“With those goals in mind, I designed the 4-T™ “for TODAY” Journal Series. Each volume serves a different purpose: WIL-T: What I Learned…TODAY! is for learning and growth; AWIR-T: About What I Read…TODAY! is a reading companion (click here for one journal user’s review of AWIR-T™); and WIG 4-T: What I’m Grateful for…TODAY! is entirely for gratitude. Nevertheless, at times when you actually want your journal to multitask, the WAW 4-T: The Combo Journal is an excellent option to record what you’ve learned, read, and/or appreciated (see the title page to the left). Please click on each title’s image to get more information about its intended application and advantages.

“A tremendous amount of love and energy went into producing them for you. I hope that you will feel that as you use them and make each one your own. Please try them and [leave] your comments.

“Thank you for visiting, and please check out each one of my books while you’re here…er now would be a good time !”

JD Dyola’s Celebration of Life Collection™


WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS
 


Announcing My Life, My Thoughts, My Journal: JD Dyola’s Celebration of Life Collection™!

Last week, as I was tweaking the first 2 books in the 1st series of this new collection, I saw a motivational post on Twitter at #SeptemberShakeUP and I took it as a personal challenge. I was already fired up, but I thought, “What could I do to personally kick things up a notch or THREE?” Well, the idea came to me of releasing 20 new journals, or 5 four-set series’, before the end of the month, September 2015. It sounded good at the time so I put it out there by posting the goal for the world to see. Then I got back to work!

A few times in this process I did think, “Why, did I have to put it out there?!” It has been a rough couple of days, but I did it! And I’ve learned so-o-o much. The 6th series is now complete which means that I’ve actually exceeded my original target. Am I exhausted? Yes! But I also feel exhilarated. Sixteen of the 20 books in the new collection are available now (please use links below) and all 24 will be out before or on September 30th. Please visit the Previews & Updates page for new additions to the Collection.

Now that I’ve accomplished so much in such a short time, it’s hard to go back to my old schedule. I want to keep going!

Fired up,
JD


MORE ABOUT JD Dyola’S CELEBRATION OF LIFE Collection™ (8 Series & counting!)

This grouping of assorted series’ is united under the Celebration of Life Collection™ umbrella since every set in it focuses on one thing that adds joy to life in some way. The title—My Life, My Thoughts, My Journal—the  theme, and the selected images of each series also serve to unify all 4 volumes in highlighting something that makes life even more awesome.

The journal interiors contain ruled, numbered pages but are otherwise blank. And the covers do not dictate their content. Write about whatever you wish. For instance, if you’re a pet, music, or flower lover one of the journals in that specific series may captivate you, but it’s your journal. Please fill it with your favorite quotes, pictures, and so on. Because you know sometimes you feel like a quote, and sometimes you don’t! Furthermore, the “Dedication,” “Acknowledgments,” and “About the Author” sections have been left for you to complete. You are the author. These really are Books for you and by YOU!™
