One style of {{Mockumentary}}, where it's a recognizable type of computer document -- IRC chat log, forum posts, guestbook, Facebook posts, blog entries, email, etc. It's almost always a FanFic or history fic, mainly because it's an "easy" form, and it's almost always at least part-comedy, mainly because it would be hard to take this seriously anyway.

It could also be an ApocalypticLog. May be integrated with a FourthWallMailSlot. CharacterBlog is a variant usually done as part of a larger work. Compare GagDub.
