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:

I once shot a man in Reno just to hear my neighbors say I was quiet and how shocking it all is on the local news.

It's so sad when you open the freezer door and that old bearded broccoli you sentenced to the hole covers its eyes from the unfamiliar light.

I don't mind the Moon controlling the tides. I just wish it would quit screwing around with my cousin Pete.

Can't help but think, if this were the '40s, I would've been tangled up with a pair of leggy dames hustling a grift in a seedy motel by now.


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).

BREAKING NEWS: Horse meat found in IKEA meatballs turns out to be yummy, stylish, and difficult to assemble.

George Washington was worth over half a billion in today's dollars. No wonder he went to war over British tax policy.

Business tip: insert plenty of amusing, meaningless Internet memes in private office documents. Help lighten your Chinese hacker's work day!

If the world is getting you down today, look up to the sky and remember, there are probably much, much larger "meteors" headed this way.
