A thought occurred to me recently… I was wondering if anyone was itching to write more about aspects of Pepys or the time he lived in. If so, maybe it would be worth creating a new section of the site for such articles. Every so often a new essay/article could be posted up and readers could, as ever, post comments. Any topic related to the diary or the times would be welcome (individual people, politics, language, fashion, etc.) and they could of course be rather longer than diary annotations. It might be a daft idea, or there might not be enough people interested in writing things — let me know what you think.
(This isn’t intended to be a substitute for any kind of discussion forum, which we’ve discussed at great length already. I may still do something to assist in separating or sorting different kinds of diary annotations, but that’s an issue separate to these essays.)
