Once upon a time, we used to bare our souls in secret diaries we kept locked and hidden away. Times have changed for bloggers who use their pages to post their private diary in the public domain! Today's bloggers post their daily diaries, rants, happy times and bouts of the blues up there for billions of unknowns to see. Exhibitionnist, liberated, narcissisistic or open-minded? Each to their own!
Blogs can be extremely therapeutic, because unlike a website or ordinary diary, a blog is interactive. Each visitor can leave you comments, advice and support.
Other people use their blog as a thematic diary of one area of their life: their search for a job, their search for a soul-mate, their weight-loss journey or holiday diary. This is fab for globe-trotters who don't have time to send postcards or emails to their entire address book. Your friends and family can keep up with your adventures through your blog: just give them the web address and they can go on and read all about your adventures, look at your phots and videos, if you have them.
