Hey, remember when blogs were called “diaries?” Those pen-and-paper throwbacks filled with personal stories and incidental observations? Well, in what could be our favorite emerging trend, bloggers are posting old diary entries on their blogs. Wheels within wheels, people.
We already told you about the time How to Take a Fall posted an essay about journaling, complete with revealing entries. Now Virtual Inanity has gotten into the game, posting samples from a friend’s diary. But we missed the accompanying event in which people read aloud from their diaries, which we’re sure was awesome.
And it’s all about stories, right? That’s what we’re here for. Be they touching tales or rants, the blog world is all about sharing stories we wouldn’t run into otherwise.
To the diarists, thanks for the memories. And bloggers, keep ‘em coming.
