Bookmarked your site and excited to see how it goes Eric. Thanks for all you do and have done for us on OD. It is appreciated so very much!

February 4, 2014

Your story about discovering OD, is everyone’s storyΒ…. I am grateful for all the effort you put into keeping this site running. I have looked at PB several times and do not like it, so have decided I will not join. Now that I know about your new site, I will be checking it outΒ…. Enjoyed your video…

February 4, 2014

Thank so much Eric!! I’m so anxiously awaiting your new diary site! Great video hun. Loved it! See you on the flip side.

February 4, 2014

I too am awaiting your new site. As great as Open Diary has been for all of us, I think your new site will be just as great, and as the years go by I think that the people who’ve joined with you will think of Easy Diary as Open Diary reborn. Thank you Eric for everything you’ve done here on Open Diary. I know the end is very near, not even sure you’ll get to read this but I had to leave a note thanking you.

Thank you for everything you have done for diary members over the years!

February 4, 2014

Thanks for all your hard work on the site… I have the address bookmarked and look forward to giving it a go when it’s online! Cheers,

Thanks for all your efforts over the years EWS! Good luck with the new venture! Brian (Odd John/Single Dad/the observer)

February 4, 2014

Eric, you are just awesome!!! Thank you for this!! I am looking forward to the future.

February 4, 2014

Darling, your math is wrong πŸ˜‰ It’s been a little over 14 years for both of us– we started in August 1999.

I told you my math wasn’t good, Gail! lol #usingadminsiginmyowndiaryforthewin Eric

February 4, 2014

Thank you for caring about us all…. Can’t wait to get there! Reserve my name for me! Lol! Seriously, without your undying efforts OD would have died long ago. Thank you!

February 4, 2014

Thank you so much for keeping this site going as long as you did, I can’t imagine the amount of hours you’ve put in. I’m really excited about your new site! Based on the quality of your work here I’m betting it’s going to be great. Can’t wait!

Good video! Good luck with Easy Diary. Thanks for everything!

February 4, 2014

Way to go, man! Perfect. I’ll be in on EasyDiary…. The only thing…THE ONLY thing is you really need a top-level domain (rather than a sub) for it to really take off. Top level, man! TOP LEVEL!

February 4, 2014

I have a couple of questions about your new diary that is under construction. First, like many here, I have been here an awful long time: 14 years. To see it die a slow death is distressing..*smiles* Maybe you can address the issues that I have on of your first entries of the new diary site: Are you sure that you can handle the financial end of it? Can you handle the ‘customer service,’…

February 4, 2014

part of ‘the job’? I just happen to think that a well-run diary site, that is like the od with a new paint job, has a place in our society where it could grow by leaps and bounds, if handled right. But I’m sure that it would take an enormous amount of work? I guess that I would need reassurance before I would become involved in another diary site.

To Heavenwithin: You may not see this note but Eric is the one that has been running OD as much as the DM would let him. Eric knows what he is doing better than anyone and it is truly rude and insulting of you to question such a talented and smart guy! He has been her to answer questions, apply payments, fix diaries when we couldn’t access them, do anything it took to keep OD running. It wouldhave been down the tubes long ago if not for Eric!

February 4, 2014

Eric/EWS, thanks for all you have done for all of us that make up OD. You have been the go to guy for a long time without pay and I can’t wait for your new site to open and know you will have great success and hope you make bookoos of money! I loved your video, thanks for making it and sharing with us!

February 4, 2014

Excited for your new site!!!

February 4, 2014

ryn: I debated to write that about Bruce, if he would have a diary or not…lol I was serious about giving ‘you’ my full support! You have done SO much for people and deserve the best!!! I’m very excited about your site and will be the first or close to the first to sign up!!! I seen you my Info. hope you received it!!! Anyways, I’m glad I made you LOL…I think! Haha!!!

February 4, 2014

Loved your youtube clip!

OMFG turn on the captioning on your video. I am sitting here laughing hysterically. 1:52 to moes the most biggest oh ma gosh 2:10 I got a big take out a bit I’m inside you know 3:00 20 so I thought what I would make my own derek is that always wanted my own thing I am DYING over here. Anywho. Youve been great, so long.. and thanks for all the fish.

Also, in stalking your youtube, you live by me. I sincerely hope this is the last creepy note you ever get. BAHA

February 4, 2014

Definitely looking forward to your site EWS! πŸ˜€ ~~~>

February 4, 2014

wonderful video farewell…thank you for it and for all you have done for us. I thought you were responsible for starting prosebox too but obviously not…many of us went there but its not the same as OD. I will bookmark your new site and hopefully catch you there. thanks and hugs p

February 4, 2014

Thank you for all your hard work. I’m looking forward to joining your diary site πŸ™‚ Your video made me a bit motion sick… but, thanks for updating!

February 4, 2014

Really looking forward to your site. Thank you so much for all the work you’ve put into OD, and for caring enough to keep working for this community. Take care, for now, hope to see you soon.

February 4, 2014

So excited! And, I just love your video. Thank you so much for everything.

*for….really should proofread. So, even when the site is launched, it’s going to be by invitation only for awhile? That’s disappointing.

February 4, 2014

Thank you for keeping this place alive for such a long time. x

February 4, 2014

Bj: no, it’s not being rude to ask a businessman what his vision is…and I’m sure that EWS won’t take it that way! Frankly if he would, that would tell me a lot… I won’t be back here again, Bj, to read another one of your rather judgmental notes. Like the Indian says, ‘Never criticize a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins.’

Thanks for all your help over the years. I look forward to sharing in your new adventure!

February 4, 2014

Will be waiting for your site, Hon. best wishes and thank you for the FAIR and BALANCED service over the years. *hugs* from

February 4, 2014

Hello there again. I also left a note on your entry at Prosebox. Go you! I’ll be first in line to sign up. I’m really excited!

February 4, 2014

Thank you so much for enormous part you played in keeping OD going for all these years. This site meant such an enormous amount to so many of us… the fact that you helped make this all possible is huge.

February 4, 2014

Looking forward to it. PB is okay, but … *meh* And, like everyone else has voiced….thanks for keeping OD alive. It’s been my life for 13+ years.

Thanks for everything and thanks for looking out for me! Sending you every nerdy vibe I’ve got for the new spot and its success!

February 4, 2014

Bookmarked your site! πŸ™‚

February 4, 2014

so sad πŸ™ but excited to see your site eventually!

February 4, 2014

I am excited to see what you put together! πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for keeping this site going when Bruce bailed.

February 4, 2014

I will email the URL for this page to all my former OD friends who are no longer on OD. Thanks for giving us a future home. Take care, be well and the best of luck. Thomas

Thanks for the info. The video was fun to watch, but all the whirling around gave me a little woozy motion sickness, too! πŸ™‚ I will be sure check out your new site!

February 4, 2014

Looking forward to your new diary site. thanks for everything πŸ™‚

February 4, 2014

Thank you so much Eric for help keeping this site moving and working for the last several years…your story is like many on here…I actually found this site via bored.com (which is how I know some people probably found this site as well)…I have migrated over to Prosebox for now, but I will definitely get on Easy Diary when it is up and running…Thanks again for all you years of hard work anddedication to this site and all us fellow OD users… -Rex

February 4, 2014

This was great! I will definitely check the site out when it’s ready.

February 4, 2014

I’m very excited to hear this news. I will definitely check it out. I can’t thank you enough for keeping OD running for as long as you did.

February 4, 2014

LOVE!!!!!! πŸ™‚

February 4, 2014

Thanks for all you have done and all you will be doing!

February 4, 2014

I’ve also bookmarked your site. can’t wait to try out the finished product πŸ™‚

February 5, 2014

Enjoyed your video. Thanks for all you’ve done over the years. I’ve bookmarked your site and am looking forward to seeing it open.

February 5, 2014

I’m looking forward to seeing what the site will look like. πŸ™‚

February 5, 2014

You know Eric- I cannot even write at prosebox. i am waiting patiently for your site. I have no doubt it will be bigger and better than this one. Thank you for doing what you are doing. I just wish you had thought of it a month earlier. chuckles

February 5, 2014

Anticipating a wonderful relief when EasyDiary is available. Thank you by the way!

February 5, 2014

You are cool, EWS! I wish you all the luck for doing easydiary. Perhaps you may inform on this at Prosebox.net sooner or later when it is ready? Take care! πŸ™‚

Just wanted to stop by and thank you for everything you have done, for me personally but also for the rest of the Open Diary community. I’m sure that without you, this closure may have come sooner. Good luck with Easy Diary. I will definitely stop across when it is up and running. Many, many thanks.

I have to add, Heavenwithin, EWS is an AMAZING guy. I’ve counted on his support many times and he’s always come back with the goods in super quick time. I have no doubt of his capabilities.

Thank you for all you’ve done for OD. I’ll be looking for your site updates at the new url.

Can’t wait for this. Thanks so much for all you’ve done throughout the years!

February 5, 2014

Hi, I just made this bogus OD, so I can come in and Thank You. I downloaded my OD to my harddrive, and saved it. Then I deleted it. I am really Butterfly4Him. In any I really want to tell you, that I am so excited about the new EasyDiary! I can hardly wait and I will not stay on Prosebox. It isn’t my cup of tea, but, only intirim until you are up and running. :*)This isGreat*Butterfly4Him

Thank you for the wonderful job you have done here. πŸ™‚

February 5, 2014

Thank you, for everything. I eagerly await your new site πŸ™‚

February 6, 2014

I always enjoyed reading you, even though I never noted you before. I started in April of 1999 then lost my diary in 2002 with a DM diary purge – so I am a long and faithful OD member myself. I’m excited about your Easy Diary initiative and will be looking for it! I’ll follw you on twitter as well πŸ™‚ Thank you for all you have done for and with Open Diary. Take good care! ~~QP

February 6, 2014

This is the first I’ve seen your diary, but I’m glad I clicked the RC link! I think what you’re doing is great and I’ve bookmarked your site. Best of luck with it and thank you for doing this!

A big “thank you” for all you have done over the years to keep this site up. This is my last noting … will delete my journal later on tonight….like losing family….

February 6, 2014

Thank you for everything, Eric. And thanks for creating another diary for us.

February 6, 2014

Looking forward to your new site. Cool video. See you on the other side. πŸ™‚
