Many of us love talking to our diaries - about the most mundane things to the deepest secrets or some of our best and not so best times.
Putting thoughts into words gives us perspective, clears our mind and it feels like talking to a friend. Taking it to the next level, what if that friend was the world, an audience and you could anonymously share your thoughts and listen to what others say too?
That’s how the idea for Dear Diary came in.
Diary entries let us enter an emotional territory and perceive the world in a very different, intensive way.
Voicing our thoughts is essential to our life story. Diary entries are just a more candid way to do so.
What can you talk about in the diary entry you send us:
You can talk about your day, share a CauseAChatter kinda story (check CauseAChatter stories here), share a random incident or a more personal one, talk about things you find it hard to share where everyone knows you, and so on.
Think of Dear Diary as an extended Blogchatter friend who would safeguard your thoughts, whilst giving them the voice they truly deserve.
How to participate:
Just mail us your written entries at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, if you feel more comfortable talking to your nearest Blogchatter team member, you can share through them too.
