A journal, or a diary in the days of old, is a handwritten book or compilation of day-to-day records of events or experiences of its author. In a way, it could be considered as a form of literature that is comprised of daily or weekly entries of essays or prose. These describe the author’s experiences, thoughts, feelings, and even fears during the time the entry was written. It is a private and intimate form of literary art as it contains words that have been poured out from the author’s soul, revealing sensitive information and secrets that may or may not be known to any other person.
There are also other types of journals that are written and kept as a formal record of public events and observations within an organized body of people, like the public journal. There are also journals or diaries that are updated with daily or eventual entries for strict record or evidence purposes only. But whatever the type of journal, it remains a chronicle of past and present events that reveal many things about the progress of civilization.
In the Information Age, the journal has reached a higher level of recording chronicles of events. It can now be easily accessed and updated anywhere you can get a hold of a computer that has internet connection. Thanks to the internet revolution, journals and chronicles can now be shared and stored with ease and creativity. These high-tech journals are mostly found published or housed by a weblog, or blog, in the public domain. These blogs are authored by the most diverse of societies around the world, no longer just the “educated white men” of the old centuries.
Online journals or online diaries, as you can call them, are personal blogs that are hosted and maintained by different online software companies and sponsor groups. The popularity of the blog is probably a side-effect of the rise of democracy and freedom of expression. It is a mean of communication and expression for people who chose to outgrow the boundaries of social media sites.
Blogs, like the old-fashioned journals, are also considered to be an intimate form of literature, with the bonus of more creative and attractive themes that also reflect the personality of the blog itself. They are also updated with daily or weekly entries about the author’s experiences and thoughts, so they retain the “human touch and feel” of a physical, handwritten journal.
Blogs are considered to be even better than physical journals because they are eternal. As long as the internet exists, blogs will continue to persist unless they violate online rules or any laws. The journal, on the other hand, is perishable. It only takes a match and a little fire to completely obliterate a journal from existence, along with the precious literature written in it.
Blogging is also better in terms of sharing or circulating information. With just a click of the mouse, your posts can be viewed by the people you want to share it with. You can share it from across the globe without breaking a sweat. You can also modify your blog’s visibility or privacy setting, so there is no need to worry about leakage of any “private” content if your blog is set to private or invisible.
Another edge of blogs would be their customizability. There are many different colorful themes and background images that you can choose from to ornate your site appearance. This is a very useful feature if you want to create and maintain a distinct personality for your blog, probably a reflection of your own.
