Why keep an online diary?

Write the story of your life

Keeping a diary online makes it easy to write a record of your life, celebrate your successes, talk about your challenges, and learn more about the person you are.

Share your true self

Unlike other places online, here you can post in an anonymous, judgement-free environment - where you can share what is really going on in your life, and talk about the things you can't talk about anywhere else.

Find support in our community

Open Diary is a community of people who respect each other, and support each other through life's ups and downs. Our most important rule is that all members treat each other equally.
