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

Daily diary entries by email

To receive each day's diary entry by email, subscribe on Buttondown.

Emails are sent out a little after that day's entry is published on the front page of the website, towards the end of the day (UK time).

If you were previously receiving these via the old daily diary entry list, your address will have been moved over to the new list on Buttondown.


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


The Mastodon account features the same texts, at the same times, as the Twitter account.


There are a variety of RSS feeds available for different parts of the site (learn more about feeds at
