Yesterday there was an article in the Sunday Times about Pepys’ Diary, as well as the George Orwell Diaries and the posting of Pride and Prejudice to Facebook.

[UPDATE: Pride and Prejudice isn’t actually posted to Facebook, but has been written in the style of Facebook.]

It reads a bit strangely to me, in that you could almost be forgiven for thinking this site has only recently begun, rather than being around for six years. And it also makes me wonder why these journalists apparently never get in touch with me when they’re preparing these articles.

Sometimes good things take a while to filter to the rest of us! I was also blissfully unaware of Pepys' Diary until last Friday, when a colleague told me about it. I was an instant fan and wrote about it immediately in my own blog at: http://jmacg.wordpress.com/2009/03/07/samuel-pe...

Congratulations on a great website – not just in the subject matter, but in the general organisation and presentation.

They're supposed to. As a hardworking writer, I can assure you it is lazy, irresponsible and potentially unethical for a writer to not contact you while writing a piece like this.
