I like your diary, Jen. I started reading it back when you were still on the other side of the country, remember? Something about sanity in a journal attracts's why my other big favorite is Lucy's "Aries Moon" ( Crazy, I'm all full up on here. Thanks for providing the other perspective.

Yeah.. I agree with shonogan above... i stopped reading diaries because it started to seem like everyone was competing for the "Biggest Misanthrope" award. It's the same reason I've stopped buying novels on a whim... no one wants to write about anything other than why life is so hard for them. Jen, on the other hand, keeps her diary just plain interesting and manages to not get wrapped up in too much navel gazing.

Well, my own, of course. (Hee hee.)

These are the journals I currently read each morning, in order (more or less):

House of the Moon ( Rushing Into Something ( Toasted Spiral ( Jellyfish ( See Jane... ( (I was led to this one by Jen's account of her birthday party. Go, girl!) What Keeps Me Up At Night (

There are a bunch more, but these are the ones I'm most faithful to.

I'm a huge fan of Blackberry Creek. You want sanity? This is a lovely, peaceful, country diary.

This one is the best I read!

Jen, your diary is the only one I read with any regularity at all. (I pop in and check it out every month or so.) I keep coming back because it is well written, not overly stylistic, and interesting without being overly dramatic.

Gosh, you guys are embarrassing me with all this flattery!

But I guess this explains why I have 200 hits a day, but am still relatively unknown in the diary community--there appears to be hardly any overlap between my readers and people who read other diaries!

Yours, of course, Jen, and Kymm and Pamie and Rob and Stee and Patrick... man I am just a freaking wannabe, huh?

Oh well. My own ( : Mildew ) gets, oh, no hits ever, and I've been around since August 1996 with two moves and one semi-hiatus, and nobody knows who the fuck I am. It's a little frustrating, but what the hell ever.

Jen, I guess I'm one of those fans lacking crossover. Oh, I read Gus too, but I kind of think he falls in the same category. You both write in a concise, simple style and rarely drone on about matters which would obviously be of no interest. Also, I think your journals show more intelligence than the rest. I'm not saying that other journalers aren't intelligent, just that they fail to convey it. Anyway Jen, I like your style a lot, and if you were fishing for compliments this was an effective, subtle way to draw them out.

I hear so much about Jen's diary, but could someone tell me the address for it? If you could, email it to me, please, I don't know how often I'll check this.
