Electronic Diaries

People have been jotting down their personal thoughts since written language was created. Sometimes, diaries are kept as private mementos, and other times, the memories are passed down for the sake of posterity. Whatever your reasons for keeping a diary, you will surely appreciate the ease and convenience of an electronic diary.

Why Use an Electronic Diary?

The problem with paper diaries or journals is that they can be lost or destroyed. An online electronic diary is kept safe and secure in the cloud. Your diary is stored securely online, so you'll never forget where it's hidden.

Here are some of the most common reasons why people prefer electronic diaries:

  1. No one but you can access the diary, so you never have to worry about Nosy Nellies poking into your most private thoughts.
  2. A paper diary is usually locked and hidden. Locks can be broken and secret hiding places can be found, or you may forget your latest hiding place because it has to be changed so often. An electronic diary is always safely tucked away in your Penzu account that no one can break into.
  3. Upload pictures to your online diary to make your entries more special.
  4. Share journal posts with friends to get feedback about your thoughts and pictures.
  5. Access your diary from anywhere with any computer, mobile phone or tablet, without the hassle of carrying around a book.

Types of Electronic Diaries

An electronic diary can be kept for a variety of reasons, but that doesn't mean you can only keep one. Because it is so easy to store your thoughts online, you can keep a personal journal for your daily thoughts--one for a record of your travels, one to express your feelings, and one for any other reason you desire.

A popular type of diary often recommended by health care professionals is a rant journal. A rant journal lets you express your feelings and blow off some steam, completely and honestly, without offending anyone or getting any feedback. Sometimes, you just have to let out your frustrations, but friends and family members always see this as a cry for help or an opportunity to give advice, even though that is the last thing you want.

Some types of diaries are not meant to be kept private, like a travel journal. An electronic diary lets you upload pictures and share all of your great adventures with everyone you know. Of course, you can keep your travels locked away in your private account, but these types of diaries are more fun when shared.
