diary / n. (pl. -ries) 1 daily record of events or thoughts. 2 book for this.
Actually, I do have a personal blog. For the longest time I didn't want anyone at AD to know about it because I thought it only duplicated what I was writing on AD; but something strange has happened. To write a story or article on AD is a major under taking for me; but I'm finding that I can be more relaxed on my personal blog and write far more often. I can write whatever pops into my head and that's pretty freeing for me to the point that I might be able to write something everyday. No promises; but at least I'm writing again.
Blogging is a useful prelude to writing one's own creative stuf. It's good to write 'whatever pops into one's head', but the internet is full of atrociously written blogs. So, good blogging is to make the writing look effortless and natural, which Guy Hogan's Diary does.
