Online diary

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


An online diary is a personal diary or journal that is published on the world wide web on a personal website or a diary hosting website. Online diaries began in 1995. As a community formed, these publications came to be almost exclusively known as online journals. Today they are almost exclusively called blogs, though some differentiate by calling them personal blogs. The running updates of online diarists combined with links inspired the term 'web log' which was eventually contracted to form the word blog.

In online diaries, people write their day-to-day experiences, social commentary, complaints, poems, prose, illicit thoughts and any content that might be found in a traditional paper diary or journal. They often allow readers to contribute through comments or community posting.

Early history

The first web page in an online-diary format is thought to be Claudio Pinhanez's "Open Diary", which was published at the MIT Media Lab website from 14 November 1994 until 1996[1]. Other early online diarists include Justin Hall, who began eleven years of personal online diary-writing in 1994, [2], Carolyn Burke, who started publishing "Carolyn's Diary"[3] on 3 January 1995, and Bryon Sutherland, who announced his diary The Semi-Existence of Bryon in a USENET newsgroup on On 19 April 1995 [4].

Online diaries soon caught the attention of the media with the publication of the book 24 Hours in Cyberspace (1996) which captured personal profiles of the people involved in early web pages. The earliest book-length scholarly discussion of online diaries is Philippe Lejeune's Cher écran, ("Dear Screen", not yet translated to English).[5]

The end of 1997 is generally considered the cut-off date for early adopters[6].

Formation of a community

As diarists (sometimes called escribitionists) began to learn of each other, several Webrings formed to connect the various diaries and journals. The most popular Webring was Open Pages, which started in July 1996 and had 537 members as of 20 October 1998[7] A community website called Diarist.Net[8] was formed and awarded "The Diarist Awards" quarterly from 1999 through 2004. There were a number of lists of diaries and journals by topic, called "'burbs", which allowed people to find sites that had some correlation to each other[9].

Mailing lists helped solidify the community. "Collabs" were collaborative projects in which people wrote on given topics and subjects.


Some early diaries and journals showcased different emerging internet technologies, including interactive message forums, online stores, RealAudio, RealVideo, live webcams, notify lists, and daily self-photographs[10].

Today's diaries and journals may feature Podcasts, TrackBacks, permalinks, blogrolls and a host of other cutting-edge technologies.


The formation of diary hosting websites such as Xanga, Open Diary, BloopDiary, and LiveJournal caused an explosive proliferation of online diaries and journals. Xanga, launched in 1996, had only 100 diaries by 1997, but over 50,000,000 as of December 2005. Today, interactive online diaries, online journals, personal blogs and group blogs are integrated into the daily lives of many teenagers and college students, with communications between friends playing out online. Even fights may be posted in the diaries, with not-so-veiled insults of each other easily readable by all their friends, enemies, and complete strangers.

Personal opinions on experiences and hobbies are very common in the blog world. Blogs have given the opportunity for people to express their views to a mass audience.

In October 2006, the History Matters campaign launched the 'One Day In History' project, asking residents of the UK to write an online diary of what they did on 17 October 2006. The diaries will be stored at the British Library from November. [1]
