👋 Introduction

Dear Fellow Chromosomes,

Welcome to the Diary! This is your space to relax, unwind, read and share your life and experiences.

My name is DXXC and I have created Diary of an XX Chromosome to give to all women, whether born/grown/identified, a chance to tell their stories, a place in which they can make their voices heard and get in turn the support of our community and members.

To write your pages in the Diary, I have provided a few guidelines to follow.

Here is how it works.

✍ What you can write about

There are six categories in the Diary. You might choose to write a page for one or more:

  • Growing up & Other Serious Stuff — Dedicated to personal growth, self-reflection and lifestyle choices. In here you can tell and share your life stories and your journey to become your best self. Write about your past and present experiences, about your dreams and plans for the future you want to create and give tips to the community on how they can achieve theirs.
  • Business, Career & Other Adventures — Dedicated to business and your professional choices. Write about your achievements, your dream career and get the support of the Diary community. Do you have a business idea? Then pitch it to our community and get their feedback!
  • Love, Relationships & Other Disasters — Feeling like your Love life is more interesting than an episode of Sex and the City or want to write about your deepest desires that you are afraid to voice out loud? Then this section it’s for you!
  • Fitness, Health & Other Tortures — Are you a salad guru or is pizza your best friend? Do you hit the gym or are you Olympic Champion of coach jumping? Tell us about your fitness goals and motivation, your diet and how you stay fit (or unfit). Share your training routine and your recipes, inspire and get inspired to reach your health target!
  • Fashion, Beauty & Other Potions — Make yourself (un)comfortable and share your style with our community. Post the latest trends, share what makes you feel beautiful, your hacks and potions for the eternal source of youth and glamour.
  • Knowledge, Tools & Other Rumblings — All your interests and inspirations can be added to this section. From books to recent news, from philosophy to the latest technological trends, this is the section that allows you to express everything that you want to talk about and your thoughts on the topic.

🧾 Content and Rules

Choose your category and feel free to express yourself and your thoughts on any and all topics that you feel like sharing and might benefit our Community. The Diary encourages your complete freedom, we do not put any limits on post length and content and we do not shy away from the most controversial topics, provided this is respectful and doesn’t contain offensive remarks.

​In order to get your article featured in the Diary, we ask you to follow the few basic rules listed below. Your article won’t be published if:
