Do you have an online diary?

I realize that online diaries are slowly fading (and blogs are becoming more and more popular), but does anyone still have an online diary, such as ones at Free Open Diary or Bloopdiary.com? (Those are just a few that I know of). Do you agree - that these are fading? Do you (or have you ever) had one? I have one at Bloop Diary, although I rarely post entries in it. I've met a few awesome people on it, though! I feel like there's a better community (and more active, usually) at these kind of sites than at blogs (where most people struggle for views). What do you think?

I never had one and I am not planning to have either because I am not into telling everyone in the net about my daily activities. LOL I don't want to give up my privacy... I guess having a diary open to public is not for me at all.

Well, you don't have to always put in your day-to-day activities, you can make your diary as anonymous as you want it to be. Some people just write about their feelings without going into specifics, or write poems & things like that. I love having a diary, even if I only write in it once a month - because it's a good place to get things off your chest (other than here at myLot, obviously). Thanks for responding.

you are GOOD in convincing me to try having one someday. And indeed mylot help us get things out of our chest which is a real therapy for us. Thanks for appreciating my response though not in line with your ideals. :) Thanks my fellow insomniac.

For me diaries are meant to be secret so I think its not a good idea to make an online diary..you know many people are using the net..simply beware of hackers!

You make a good point, but you can always change your online diary's privacy status to only allowing yourself to see it. I kind of like having strangers read my diary, though - they give you advice without being judgmental, which most "In-person" people would surely do.

Nope, not really an online diary but on occasion I post a blog on my Myspace page. I dont really have time to keep up with an actual diary, online or otherwise.

I don't really either! I have one that I update once a month, and it's pretty much neglected if you ask me. The problem with posting blogs on MySpace is that the whole world is going to see what you're writing. With an online diary, you have the advantage of keeping your thoughts private (or sharing them with people you don't know in real life). Thanks for your response.
