Samuel Pepys kept diary that was discovered and published, years later. Why more bloggers and online journals haven’t totally embraced his work, I don’t know.

March 27, 1668

“27th. Home to dinner, where my wife and I had a small squabble, but first this day tried the effect of my silence and not provoking her when she is in an ill humour, and do find very good, for it prevents its coming to that height on both sides which used to exceed what was fit between us. So she became calm by and by and fond.”

Great wisdom, therein, with lovely, archaic language.
