|Yes. It took me this long to come up with an idea for this page. :)
My idea is this: for a little under one year now, I have been writing a kind of diary. It was originally an experiment. Could I actually keep a diary? I wanted to know. I had been writing a diary in the past, infrequently, by hand but I never was comfortable writing that way because of the extremely slow speed at which I was forced to write. My thoughts were never captured adequetely, as opposed to when I would typeand type fast!
So I began this diary on the computer. One thing you'll need to understand to truly understand the diary is that I was actually writing on a web site called Free Open Diary.
||On this web site, members as well as viewers can read diaries of other people and respond to certain entries by leaving "notes." A friend had shown me the site and I became interested in it. As it turns out, the feedback I got encouraged me to continue and so it was easier for me to return to the site and write more.
In the following subsection, Diary of a Journal, I have copied my written Open Diary entries word-for-word, and shown them here. Next to them, I have written a kind of diary about my diary, which include thoughts and feelings I have about myself looking back on what I wrote. Each part is dated. You must notice these date differences if you are to understand the text.
