Random Journal Entry

Random Journal Entry

Short, concise description of the idea
Create an interface which displays a random journal entry.

Full description of the idea
Sometimes I just want to randomly see something from my past. This new feature would display to me a random entry from my journal. The interface could allow only logged in users to find random entries in their own journal, or it could be setup so that you could also find random entries in other users' journals (of course, keeping security settings in mind).

An ordered list of benefits

  • Users don't have to go sorting through their entries (probably in calendar view) to try to click on something random (but ultimately influencing their choice based on what year and month they pick).
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Depending on the database layout (which I'm not too familiar with) this might be abig DB hit. But maybe its not - so its up to the devs to figure out.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • It seems pretty obvious what needs to be done. But I can't think of the code right now without trying to find out more about the DB layout.
