Split out[edit]

This was split off of the main Blog article in order to decrease that article's size and make it more managable. Feel free to cleanup the text here however you see fit. However, please don't put this text back into its source article. Thesquire 07:33, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Junk Link[edit]

Clicking on Note 8: "The 537 members of Open Pages as of 20 October 1998 " hijacked IE, and started up SeaMonkey, purportedly to download an antivirus program, and a "protection scanner." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.191.193.34 (talk) 20:53, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for that. There were several more linking to the same site, all re-directing to the rogue anti-virus site. I've removed them all. --GraemeL (talk) 21:03, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
For those who don't know, "IE" is online speak for "please gang-rape me." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.171.176.129 (talk) 09:42, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

The definition[edit]

The article begins like this: "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."

I may be misinterpreting the term or the description of the term, but this definition or sentence doesn't immediately sound accurate. A diary is quite often private. Whether the diary is something you write in a book with paper pages, or you write your diary entries as emails you send to yourself in your Hotmail account, doesn't matter very much. It's still a diary (or journal). That your diary is kept online doesn't necessarily mean it's "published". Just wanted to share this thought on the first sentence. -95.34.0.173 (talk) 21:57, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

You're right, you ARE completely without a clue. What part of the word "published" meaning "published" do you not understand? You just keep sharing your thoughts, darlin' and keep those mint juleps coming!
