"Diary" usually means personal and private. But it can mean a lot of things. I can imagine cases where people are okay with that. I've managed a personal "diary" that's on Github publically. It's really just a reference of tech stuff I've learned.

Well that's more of a journal. But yeah, a "diary" service can be used for less private stuff too.


Fair. I've always considered the two to be synonyms.

I was referring to a non-diary journal (in the general logbook sense), but the difference is murky at best.
