This WordPress plugin adds a new post type that allows you to quickly and privately keep track of what you’re grateful for.
It’s private by default, but you may change that and post publicly if you’d like. Titles populate automatically as the current day’s date, hashtags convert to WordPress style tags (which this plugin calls Gratitudes), and instead of Categories you set up Moods. You may also set up a daily email reminder and see what you’re most grateful for from the dashboard.
Thanks to prompts (see below) and a dashboard widget with links to recent gratitude articles, inspiration/motivation is provided. This is key since we don’t always feel grateful. Also, remember that you can always just type out thoughts versus, “I’m grateful for.” In other words, this can be your regular journal as well.
🪄 Recommended way to post
I’m grateful for #wordpress and #water.
💡 Not feeling grateful?
An inspirational message will appear at the top of the editor page. You may dismiss it for 30 days. And, you may make it reappear anytime by clicking “Reset Prompt” within the publishing box. Over time, new messages will be added as new versions of the plugin are released.
