Sorry, DearDiary just doesn’t get anywhere near close enough to pay even for a cup of tea per month so I’m really not interested in fighting the constant battles against idiots who believe the website owes them something. Especially those who believe they can use websites to spread their marketing for their noxious products.
Current users can of course continue to use the service but there will be no new users.
DearDiary is sorely in need of upgrades to bring it up to scratch with current systems (Facebook, Blogger etc) and people’s usage expectations. It’s been on the cards for over 5 years now and realistically, it is never going to happen. I am one programmer and I have a mortgage to pay with a real day job. Which means I don’t get time to put the effort in to produce a ‘from the ground up’ total rebuild that is necessary to have web 2.0 screens and fancy growing entry boxes like Facebook does when you type or paste entries.
If you’ve recently paid for a Plus account and feel you’ve been let down, please contact me privately and I will arrange a refund.
