What kind of journal do you find easiest to read?--Al

First things first, Al. Congrats on the article and the nomination. Both items of recognition are so deserved.
The journals I find the easiest to read are the ones that provide a variety of entertainment within their entries. A healthy mixture of soap-boxing, humor, slice o' life, and drama. To concentrate solely on one area can be overwhelming...
That is why I am drawn to the journals that I read. Because they can make me laugh, cry, smile....and mostly...think.

I like a journal that is concise, that says a lot in a few words. Yes, breaking the words up into short paragraphs so there isn't the intimitating 'wall-o-text' helps. But even a long, meandering ramble isn't helped totally by that. Of course, some people LIKE long, meandering rambles, and might find the sort I prefer too brief. Life is short, find what you like best...
Oh, yes, and congrats on the nomination and mention...The article was well written.

I definitely prefer reading diarists who seem like real people. I currently only read 3 on-line journals. I dropped a 4th recently because I felt that the diarist was trying too hard to be funny or biting or cool. I want to understand as best I can the person behind the words and not what he or she wants to be. This journal is so real and entertaining. Yours, along with my other two are wonderful. I am sure there are other good ones out there, but I just don't have the time.
