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:

My last ditch plan for getting out of debt is to sit in a cage at the SPCA and hope a rich family thinks I'm cute.

If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no police record at all.

Back when I was a kid, I didn't need LeBron James to tell me to ride my bike. I just did it, because my parents used to hit me.

What happens at rock bottom stays at rock bottom.


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).

"Don't you see? The Phantom Menace was just a place we all constructed, so we could hate something together."

Ted, we need to talk about how secretly dosing the staff with LSD is NOT "an optimal way to facilitate team-building and other cool shit."

 Imagine Phoebe Cates is somewhere masturbating to someone masturbating to Judge Reinhold masturbating to Phoebe Cates.

"Son, my entire life will have been for nothing if I die before seeing a bloody street brawl between a bunch of clowns and mimes."
