Fred's Analog Blog revisited

In Fred's first post, he suggested a Analog Blog with the following characteristics: ...a paper personal journal...that you use to put thoughts in and get...your own comments on past posts...
Around this Analog Blog Freds invents a system of references to make all information connected.
I suggested to call it what it really is, a diary. A daily written record of (usually personal) experiences and observations (Hyper Dicitonary).
Now Fred defends the reference system in the Analog Blog by comparing it with note taking:
I personally have over 1500 handwritten sheets, containing many type of information, in around 30 file cabinets. It's virtually impossible to find anything in a reasonable time without any classification system.
In that view I would agree that Freds system has its merits, but a reference system for note taking is not the same as a personal journal. In my opinion, a blog/diary has a very clear timeline, and is almost always personal thoughts and comments. Notes on the other hand has no clear timeline, and each note may be your own thought but might just as well be other sources, news clippings, excerpts from books, and so on.
So Fred, it's nothing wrong with your system. But call it what it really is, a Analog [insert favourite note taking software here].
