Thank you!

Usually, `home-page' is lower in the package definition, right above `synopsis'.

It may be just me, but I'm not a big fan of this trick, because it binds
two information that might be unrelated at some point. I suggest to use
the full URL instead.

OTOH, the above is not a strong argument either, so it's up to you.

I suggest "Simple Org mode based journaling mode". In any case, I think
"guix lint" complains when a synopsis starts with an article.

"Org Journal maintains a set of files, which may represent a day,
a week, a month or a year."

IOW, I think description should not leak the innards of the package.

You need to add two spaces after full stops.

Could you send an updated patch?
