Do you use LiveJournal? You may or may not know there’s a Pepys’ Diary user. But something seems wrong with it becuase, if you scroll down, some days appear repeatedly. I’ve never used LiveJournal, so if you know what might be causing this, then do let me know!
News about this site and other Pepys-related events.
If you read the diary via RSS, you should probably check in on the RSS feed of this mini-weblog too, so as not to miss out on changes to the site: RSS v0.91 or RSS v1.0. Although you’re unlikely to read this if you use RSS and never come to the site…
More press coverage for the site in the last few days: USA Today, Washington Post (bottom of the page) and The Guardian, twice, in ‘Web Watch’ (which overstates the longevity of Haddock.org by three years) and as a Books ‘Site of the Week.’ The site is also mentioned at Die Zeit although they don’t appear to have permalinks.
I’ve added a new page that lists the annotations posted to all diary entries and the People and Places pages. Ideal for those of you who like to keep up with what’s happening on the site!
Claire Tomalin’s Samuel Pepys: The Unequalled Self is BBC Radio 4’s Book of the Week from Monday 6th January and you can listen to it online here.
I did an interview for NPR‘s All Things Considered programme which you can now hear online.
BBC News Online asked me to write an article about this site.
From Pepys’ writing we can tell he was writing at the end of each day, about the day’s events. Therefore each day’s entry will be posted at around 11pm UK time.
