di·a·ry (die-re)I'm half convinced no one keeps a written diary. The the digital-age paired with the adolescant need of approval and praise helped revolutionize the ever growing majority of the 'blogosphere'.
Most blogs start out in the traditional sense of a diary only to degenerate into a column-worthy commentary of sorts. Taking away the personal aspect of the entry. Which is what I'm doing right now.
At what point does this occur? I've found it generally happens when the blogger acquires more readers. If you look at blogs where the blogger has little to no readers, the entries exude raw, private emotions. Few bloggers with many readers keep true to the literal sense of the word 'diary'.
There is opportunity for truly creative and personal writing to take place if you express yourself as if no one is watching, waiting to hyper-analyze your thoughts.

I tired keeping one but became easily annoyed at how my thoughts weren't flowing as quickly as they would via typing. I love referring back to texture and actual pages, but there are too many things I dislike about keeping one. For example: When I get down to the bottom of the page my writing becomes slurred dued to the uncomfortable position my hand is in.
I can't censor myself and I can't rid myself of thoughts I've written down quite as easily. Which is a good and bad thing, really. :¥
Do you really keep one?

I kept one for a while when I was in elementary school, and then again during the whole Brad/Mandie fiasco. I started keeping one then because it pissed Brad off when I'd write on myspace, and that was the last thing I wanted to do, but I still needed to get it out of my head some how, and written words sometimes are much better than spoken. I prefer them a lot of the time because I can usually go back and reread what I had "said" or jotted down, and usually doing so would make me a) feel better and b) remember them.
