As well as reading diary entries on this website you can read them in daily emails, RSS feed, Twitter, Mastodon, or LiveJournal.

Email

At Groups.io we have two groups:

Because of how Groups.io works, in order to join the Diary Entries group you must also join the Discussion "sub-group". However, you can turn off the Discussion group’s emails if you don’t want to receive them.

  1. Send an email to diary-entries+subscribe@pepysdiary.groups.io

  2. You should receive an email from Groups.io asking you to confirm your address. Reply to that email as instructed.

  3. You’ll receive two emails welcoming you to both of the groups.

  4. If you don’t wish to receive emails from the main Discussion group you can change your subscription settings:

    1. Send an email to discussion+nomail@pepysdiary.groups.io.

    2. You’ll receive a confirmation email – reply to this to confirm the change.

Sorry that this is a bit complicated. If you have difficulty, do email me.

RSS

There are a variety of RSS feeds available for different parts of the site (learn more about feeds at AboutFeeds.com):

Twitter

The @samuelpepys Twitter account updates several times a day with excerpts from that day’s diary entry.

Mastodon

The @samuelpepys@mastodon.social Mastodon account features the same texts, at the same times, as the Twitter account.

LiveJournal

If you use LiveJournal you can access the latest diary entries there.
