On Open Diary, Diary Circles are places where members can post entries about specific subjects that they are interested in. Examples include:
To be able to add entries to a Diary Circle, you must first join that Circle. Start by clicking the site main menu, and then clicking on Circles.
Once you click on Circles, you will be taken to the Diary Circles home page. On this page, you will see all the currently active Circles on Open Diary.
To join a circle that you want to be part of, click the “Join” button.
There is no obligation to joining a Diary Circle, this just means that you will be able to post entries in the Circle. Entries that you post into a Circle also appear in your diary like any other entry, but they will also have a Diary Circle icon displayed in the upper right to show that they are part of a circle.
