Has the Diary Moved Online?

There are many personal users of social media and blogging that can humble content writing services with their massive online output.  Traditionally every young girl in the UK was supposed to keep a diary.  Many men and women of all ages did for a variety of purposes and reasons.

A personal diary was a means of keeping track of their lives and being clear on their thoughts and feelings.  Many found them therapeutic, and of course it would lead to frequent embarrassing situations where the people named in the diary would end up reading it.

Many kept diaries to track their progress in various quests.  Whether it was a work or diet diary to help them lose weight, or one to track their progress or their finances – everything appears to have moved online.

Social Media Outpourings

With the ability to share with hundred of friends or potentially thousands of followers, many have decided that a problem shared is a problem halved.  Many users of social media share very intimate and personal details among their friends network, usually in order to gain validation and sympathy from friends.  Of course many do the same, but with the more momentous occasions in their life such as graduating from a UK university or starting a new job at a content writing services firm.  Social networks tend to prefer the positive though; after all, they are called likes.


Applications are also a cause of the decline of the diary.  Why enter all the details of the food you ate, and look up the calories contained, the amount to burn it off etc, when all you need to do in an app is enter what you ate and it will calculate the rest for you?  Similarly with fitness related apps, it is like having a personal trainer in your product.  When you used to have goals, writing down your progress was just the first stage, you then had to make sense of it.  With apps, the answer comes back to you straight away.


A diary is also often used to keep track of and make sense of all the important things going on in your life.  With applications like Evernote however, this can all be done much easier online.  Evernote will sync between your computer and your Smartphone and provide some important benefits over a paper diary.

First, the diary is incapable of telling you that a deadline in imminent, such as the need to publish an article for your content writing services business, whereas Evernote or countless other note taking and calendar apps will make plenty of noise until you respond.  Another great advantage is the ability to share photos and other media with Evernote, whilst  with a paper diary you would have to wait for the pictures to be developed and then try not to make a mess with the PVA glue.

Online Diaries

Of course, there are even websites with the sole function of being a diary.  Yes, whether you want it private or public, you can host your diary online on what is essentially a themed blog.  Content writing services as a practice can essentially be seen as the practice of keeping a public diary for a UK firm with a public profile, though we never get embarrassed when someone we like reads our content.
