Don't know if this is an omen but I made my first post and Blogger goes down for about 20 hours.
Anyway, I wanted to point out a couple of good online journals. One is by Douglas Wolk at http://www.lacunae.com/noise.htm and the other is by Neil Gaiman at http://www.neilgaiman.com/journal/journal.asp. Maybe it helps that they're not only professional writers but good ones as well. The annoying thing, though, is that you can't really read these starting at the beginning. Wolk's doesn't have a separate archive and while Gaiman's archive starts several months back, within each month the posts are backwards. There's not a whole lot of narrative flow but still it would be nice to read in order.
