The Princess’s Diaries is, essentially, a diary, nothing more, nothing less. Author Ayaba is a woman who is sure of herself and is determined to give herself the best she can offer. Reading posts from such a self-inspiring woman who values herself is indeed uplifting.
Posts from The Princess’s Diaries are mainly records of Ayaba’s daily life and how she goes about improving herself. Other than the usual this-happened-today entries, Ayaba also frequently posts meaningful lists and thoughts, presumably taken from other sources. For example, a list of why women over forty are better than younger women, a list of tips on staying young, etc. All these fit well into Ayaba’s blog, as the main theme throughout seems to be self-improvement and faith, both in the self and in God. An example:
To A Beautiful Person
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He listens.
He can live anywhere in the universe, but He chose… your heart.
Face it friend, He is crazy about you! God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
However, there are a few weaker points as well. For one, The Princess’s Diaries’ layout is dry and, well, typical blogspot-ty. Also, there is no information on the author whatsoever, which makes reading about her life somewhat less satisfactory. Lastly, there are no links. Although a personal diary need not have links, it is, in a way, another method of letting readers know a blogger better by finding out what she enjoys reading.
The worth of The Princess’s Diaries lies in the words and personality of the author, where a reader may find an encouraging gem or two while reading about Ayaba’s life. Head over for a look if you are looking for some good thoughts and tranquility.
