http://www.livejournal.com/ is a quasi-free-as-in-beer online
journaling service that seems to be fairly popular.  There are a
couple of other services that use the same code base, and a couple
other livejournal clients already in Debian (I tend to use logjam, for
example, which has a somewhat similar package description).  I think
the service is popular enough that you don't need to explain what it
is, in the same way that you don't need to explain what an SNMP daemon
is to have and snmpd package.
