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 don't mind being past my prime, I just wish I had known it was my prime when it was happening.

Some days I wish I could be a kid again...

Other times I'm glad that I can properly pronounce spaghetti and I don't suck at pretty much everything.

I learned quick math in my teens and early 20s because I was always working out how often and how much my bank account would be overdrawn.

I love how companies wants to boost morale by any means necessary as long as it doesn't involve giving raises.

"I'm on your side, but you're still an idiot or willfully misunderstanding the point." I think this a lot but don't usually say it.


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).

Between coffee in the workplace, cocaine in the crime world, and energy drinks among teens, it seems wide awake people are the number one problem on the planet.

Dionne Warwick owes more than $10 million in taxes. That's a lot of trains and boats and planes.

Look over there. It’s Stop Talking Man and his faithful sidekick Seriously Shut the Fuck Up Boy.
