neither is diarist, which is all they are.

Since a broad definition of diary doesn't actually mandate the medium, it's a good use IMHO.

Diarist : one who keeps a diary (whether public or private)

Diary : a recorded collection of a persons opinions and experiences, usually segmented by days.

Given the penetration of the internet, the latter phrase would be assumed to include online diaries too.
