Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The Obama Campaign has posted four new online videos and one TV ad so far today. Often when a new video is released somebody will write a diary describing it. I often post diaries about Obama campaign videos myself. Sometimes a diary about a newly released video makes the Recommended List and gets a lot of notice; other times the diary just disappears. I've noticed that many of the videos don't get a diary nor do they receive many views on YouTube. This is where we all come in.

It occurs to me that most of you might want to do what I do. You don't have to wait for somebody to write a diary letting you know about a newly released video from the Obama campaign. Just bookmark the Barack Obama YouTube Channel page that lists the videos as they are posted. Then check it every day or two to see what's new because you just might see a video that speaks to you directly and you will want to share it with friends, family and coworkers via email or social media. These videos only help if we all share them. If nobody sees them, they aren't going to help the campaign or our desire to help President Obama get reelected. If you see one that especially speaks to you, why not write a diary and share it with us?

Today's five videos are below the fleur-de-orange. The last one is my favorite because I love hearing these real life stories and President Obama sharing this one made me smile. Which one appealed to you the most?


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
