How to find personal, non-commercial, diary-like blogs?

Many years ago, before YouTube vlogs were a thing, people seemed to be in love with personal blogs. At that time, I was writing on my own personal blog and it was relatively easy to find others who would just write about their day or whatever was going on in their mind and heart, without obsessing over how can they attract more visitors and make money off of it I believe there are still people who write like that, but in a world where all social media platforms promote sensationalism and shailowness, I don’t know where to find those kind of blogs anymore. Google search doesn’t help at all. Does anybody else feel the same? :upside_down_face:
