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:

Update #3: The orignial title of this diary was "Is it really Markos Moulitsas' birthday today?!!" well it is confirmed!

Because it says it is on his facebook page (September 11, 1971).  And his wikipedia page seems to confirm 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).

Well if it is HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

If not,

(now I gotta go wish my sister, also born today, a happy birthday!)


update #1 to add wikipedia reference and link.. oh and I wil update to put requisite birthday party stuff/images in this diary.

Update #2 ... I don't normally ask that a dairy of mine be recc-ed .. but reading the comments it seems people want to say "Happy Birthday" and "thank you" .. so please recc so others can too.

I know this diary isn't serious (but hey, we have pootie and wuzzle diaries on the rec list) but this blog Markos started gave many of us a voice, a place to share ideas and learn, a place to find like minded individuals when some of us felt lost in the wilderness and place to "play."

So please recc


I'm still looking for b-day party stuff
