KISS Keep It Simple, Stupid. Some of the best indexes of diary sites are the most basic. No scripts, no snazzy frames and layouts... nothing but links.
- The Diary Registry
The original directory. Browse by name, title, location, and more. Still growing, but needs pruning.
- Globe of Blogs
Lists weblogs in several different ways: title, location, author, birthday, gender, age, and topic. Well maintained.
Yet another directory of weblogs (blogs) and journal sites.
A collection of categorised blogs from around the world. List by country or keyword.
- The Pepys Project
An index of blogs, journals and diaries sorted by location. Upgrade pending.
- Open Directory Project
A unique community directory, edited by people, not machines.
One of the most common starting points, but not current.
