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:

Why the hell is this diary on the Rec List?

I mean seriously, that's like thirty seconds of my life I'll never get back!

I'm a busy guy. I don't have time to waste reading something as pointless as this diary. I mean I could have spent the time I wasted with your pointless diary doing a lot of very important things. Because I'm a busy...

(five paragraphs of ranting later)

Did you even consider the time drain on my life when you bothered to...

(seven paragraphs of ranting later)

You want to know how important my time is?!? Let me tell you this...


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).

It's not funny. I know funny. People always tell me how funny I am.

Like with my knock knock jokes.

And a funny person like me knows what funny is and this is not it.

It is offensive and vulgar and crude and unpleasant.

"Marmaduke" is funny. So is "Family Circle". And "Love Is".

Why can't you write like "Love is"?

Why is this diary on the Rec List?

This is such BULLSHIT! Barack Obama is a SANDWICH? Is that some reference to his RACE?  Salami is black and Barack Obama is black and so you feel like you can just all Swift Boat him by saying fucking SANDWICH! I don't know what the hell all these other people are thinking hitting the happy button, but I, for one, am not going to stand silently by!

He is not a sandwich! NOT A FUCKING SANDWICH!

Re: Why is this Diary on the Rec List...

See I haven't eaten in like nine hours and so when I read the word "HERO" in your diary title I immediately went to the sandwhich place.

Clearly you meant... well... the other kind of...

Would someone PLEASE hide rate my above comment?

You want to vent a neutral air pressure system using a three and a quarter inch aluminum stack vent? Chirst! Everyone knows the industry standard is a FIVE and a quarter inch STINK PIPE with a converted flange.

Ugh! I remember when Daily Kos used to be GOOD!

Don't you know there are people DYING in the world? People are getting AIDS and starving and clubbing baby seals and driving high-emission cars and making sexually inappropriate comment and kicking kittens and openly, flauntingly, stepping into public swimming pools without first taking the required shower! THERE MUST NOT BE FRIVOLITY IN SUCH A WORLD!

See, this is the EXACT REASON I'm on strike... why I'm not reading diaries here... why I'm not commenting.

It's diaries JUST LIKE THIS that made me swear off DKos for good!

Here is smarter and funnier and just better.

You should really go here.
