FAQs — Frequently Asked Questions
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 Journals ❤™ come in sets—series of four—Why Is tHAT?
A: Excellent question! My signature 4–T™ series began with four volumes and, ever since then, 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?
A: All of my journals are for you and by YOU because I give you a few tips, without 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! The CreateSpace links used to redirect to their corresponding pages on Amazon.com, this may no longer be applicable or functioning (by the time you read this, all links to CreateSpace will have been replaced with Amazon.com links, in which case please skip to the next Q & A topic). Therefore, I suggest that you visit the jddyola.com Previews tab, find the book that you’re interested in and click on it to go to my Amazon.com author page. Enjoy your journal!
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. […] 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 Journals ❤™ signature 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!
