Proposal

In my essay I plan to compare the styles and uses of the journal throughout history.  Im going to use examples of early journals from like the 19th century, early and late 20th century, and even the more recent weblogs of the 21st century.I will use many historic and academic sources for my research on this specific topic. Most of my research for this topic will be done on the internet and other secondary sources, but I do plan to use handwritten historic journals of individuals living in different time periods to see the similarities and also the differences. I will also employ the use of actual blogs on the interent that people have kept and are currently using to record daily events and thoughts. My thesis so far is: Even though the technology of keeping journals has change very much throughout time, the overall style and motivation behind keeping has not changed very much at all.

investigate the differences in how they are used and find that there are differences (for example:internet diaries can be used for attention vs personal websites)

if you do that the second part of your thesis stmt might change a little
