There are a lot of bloggers out there. I even have my own blog, but stopped making one. I really don't have anything to say. So how about you my fellow mylotters. Would you rather have an online journal that people can see and read or keeping a diary, the usual one, kept from people in the most secret place you could put it?

Dear friend, I do have a blog but it rarely updated. Moreover I used to write diary. In computer that too in internet I hot yet. May be if times permits and moods come out I may definetly like to do that. I could also store my photos, passwords and other secrets.

Hi Trishasantos, I have two blogs, but I never share information that is too personal or private in nature. I think if we want to keep a secret, we might as well not write it down, regardless online or offline. There is no point writing something and then try to hide in some secret location.

I would rather have online journal. And then I'll keep it private. I spend almost all of my time online so maybe that's the main reason why I prefer online journal rather than diary. And I also have a situation before that my classmate read my diary accidentally. And that's what I hate. Maybe I got traumatized by that. :))

I am not very good at keeping up with writing a journal, so I regard all of the things that I do online as being the same for me. I have a neglected blog that I should get back to and do more with.

That's a good question. I don't know if I would feel comfortable having an online journal that people could actually read. That might leave me more vulnerable than I would want to be. With a diary that I could physically hide, I would feel safer about opening up. So I guess I would have to say a diary, although it would be a welcoming feeling to feel so free that I was comfortable doing the online thing.

Diary is meant to be a secret hideout for your innermost thoughts. Putting it online is just not so right. Either way, I don't keep one.

I would rather keep a diary than have an online journal. Some things in my life should rather be kept to myself rather than posted for the whole world to see. I do have a personal blog but I try to avoid posting too much details about myself and my life in the site. Everyone needs and deserves a little privacy in their lives. I try to keep some private details in my life private.

I would like to use blog. On the blog, i could not only share some good articles with my friends but also share some life pictures there. As for the secret diary, I would also set a password for such diary.

I have a blog but rarely opens nor writes something on it. Im the type of person that loves writing stuff. Anything that I can think of I actually write it down, that's if i have the time. I don't like people seeing my blogs that's why i make it private but im not 100% sure that others can't read it so i don't write there anymore. I prefer the diary, more private. My sisters won't bother reading my writings because i have a very small handwriting that it's barely readable and my sisters has a bad eyesight so is my mother so i know im safe :D

I'd rather have neither. I'm not fond of announcing what has been happening in my life and i'm also not fond of writing it as a novel or whatever. I just wanna live my life and search for that moment of living and treasure it until i die.
