I am male
, I have a diary on OD
. It's a wonderful act of exhibitionism
, there is a surprising sense of relief when you spill your guts
to a medium accessible by everyone. That is one of reason's that most of the content is so grim. "I had a good day," isn't really something that provides excitement
to people, and it's also not usually in the category of things you have to get of your chest
. It can provide a nice base of unrequited support as with a good story you can get copious amounts of sympathy from anonymous people from around the world, albeit they are located primarily in North America
There are a few writers at OD who, like xant below me, manage to get a reader base with “I had a good day” entries, or to be more accurate, everyday life entries. They come in two forms. There are the short, point form, “I did this, this and this,” writers. Who tend to be young females, of the teeny-bopper variety. The others are good writers, who have points, and give their day meaning in the telling. The latter type are unfortunately, few and far between.
