A diary can be based on any topic that you like for example you can write on your  hobbies, activities, poems, songs, tutorials, pets, home and family, your personal thoughts, etc. And people get to read your Online Diary on daily basis and leave you a comment, suggestion or feedback.

If you write about your personal experiences in a diary made up of papers, then your writings will reach only limited people around you but with an online diary like a Blog you speak to the world. So, a blog is your Personal website where you write and share things you like with millions of people in the world who are eager to read what you have to serve.
