Online journals scare me. Without much effort I've been able to find the online journals of some people I hardly know. I practically stumbled upon them. They were interesting to read because sometimes they talk about people I know really well, but then I learned things I felt I shouldn't know about - stuff that should be left for developed friendships, not the public. I respect using journals or diaries as a resource to sort out thoughts, but I'd recommend sticking to the old pen and paper.
