‘Dear diary’ marks the start of an entry for everyone who keeps a hardcopy diary. Pouring out your thoughts and emotions are necessary to lift the weight off your shoulders once in a while, and conversing with people sometimes is not the best solution as they might not comprehend your true feelings; hence, writing in your diary which not a soul will read and your secrets will be kept out of reach is preferred.
Though, now that the Internet has blossomed into a highway connecting people and serves as a platform to share your ideas, people opt for writing blogs instead of keeping a hardcopy diary.
Some bloggers wish to remain anonymous as they can hide behind their pixelated masks and vent their true suppressed feelings, but for those who do not want to go incognito, write blogs for the world to read and enjoy.
