    how can i post directly to an archive/ category without the post showing on the front page?

    i want to keep an online diary, every day there will be a post BUT it shouldn't show on the front page, it is only viewable when you click on the category..

    i have looked everywhere for an answer here and on the net with no luck...
    Any help will be much appreciated...

    It's simple - you just need to get the other way around:
    Every post is "going" directly to a category, there is nothing to do about it.
    What you really want is this: exclude from the main page:
    a) a category or categories
    or
    b) any post = having a static main page

    For a) - look for plugins (categtory visibility and alike)
    For b) - look around in your own admin panel: Options > Reading.
