What's the best Mac app / website for keeping a journal?

I want an app (or website) that helps me keep a written journal. I'm not that interested in the things that automatically aggregate my pictures - mostly interested in just written history.

    Note taking gets even simpler

    I don't know why I just find Evernote so intuitive... you'd think it's just a simple text entry app but there are a few features that I like enough to keep coming back to it over Textedit, Word, or any of the online tools: 1. Syncing across your devices - I like that I can work offline (unlike Google Docs) and the note is automatically synced to the rest of my devices when I get back online. 2. There are a lot of integrations (I use a few via IFTTT) 3. It's really easy to search and sort.

    Evernote is, for me, one of the most functional tools that let 'record' my ideas - whether it is a piece of prose or a link reference or a title idea or chapters of my book or random audio and visual material - on my cell or on my laptop, always synced, cloud based easy access!

    Ground-up rewrite of the best journal for Mac and iPhone

    It is probably the best Journal app available for mac.Easy to add entries, locations weather. Also looks amazing
    I've been using Day One as my journal for nearly 4 years. I make it a point to make an entry every day to log my thoughts, current events in my life, or things I've learned. I like that you can submit photos, tag posts, the iOS versions will log step count and media, and you can sync and backup your data between devices. I can't recommend this app enough. It gets just about everything right.
