Well known Diarists: Marilyn Monroe

Rather than being about famous people who happened to have a diary/ journal, I'm thinking of tackling a series of posts about people who keep/kept journals.

I don't want this to veer into the murky waters of pretence or how everyone with a slightly melancholic personality considers themselves a writer, more people who got to speak for themselves.

I've always been interested in journals and their keepers and what compels people to write.
The idea that social media is the modern day equivalent of journal keeping is one that kind of makes me sad, sometimes when you hold something complete with coffee stains and teardrops, food smears, ticket stubs, it's better than just a picture with a caption

Do any of you keep a journal? What kind, and if online, please link away in comments! :)
