Comments for Diary Keeping is Bad for Health
Diary Keeping is Bad for Health: 9/9/04That's the story I heard on BBC4 this morning. I've kept a diary on and off since I was about thirteen, although my real diary fervor started in college. I have to say that when I'm depressed, I don't write. There's a recent two year gap in my diaries from a time when I both depressed and stressed.
Of course now with blogging so popular, does that mean that we're turning ourselves into a world of neurotics? Apparently content does count. Reporting traumatic events just makes the experience worse. So I'll stick to retelling the silly things my son, husband and cat have done. In the world of the blogs, I enjoy the ones that are actually about something rather than one's personal drama. I especially love the photoblogs.
