Could garder instead of tenir be used to "Keep a diary"
Dictation exercise A1
No, because "garder un journal" would mean to keep it, as opposed to give it away.
Chris is correct that 'garder un journal' would mean "keeping the item":
Je garde mes affaires = I keep my belongings
Je tiens un journal = I keep a diary (i.e. I am keeping a record about my life)
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
