Half of personal journals are still handwritten.
We have now surveyed 1000 plus Amazon Mechanical Turk users about personal journals. Here are some interesting about those who keep a personal journal:
- 48 percent of personal journals are still written by hand.
- 26 percent are kept on a Mac or PC.
- 24 percent are now kept online (mostly blogs).
- 1.6 percent are kept in other ways (calendar, on PDAs…)
The Amazon Turk crowd is a fairly tech savvy group of people. Anyone who spends their day going through and answering turk questions understands the Internet very well.
I would assume that the number of handwritten and PC/Mac journals would go up if we had a more broad survey demographic, but I was still surprised that almost half of personal journals are still kept by hand.
