Pepys Diary

A great new blog to start off 2003: The Diary of Samuel Pepys. What an innovative use of the weblog format.

"This site is a presentation of the diaries of Samuel Pepys, the renowned 17th century diarist who lived in London, England. A new entry written by Pepys will be published each day, with the first appearing on 1st January 2003."

This is also perfect timing for my new year’s resolutions, one of which is to write in my own journal more. (That’s the old cloth-bound, hand-written kind.) I filled the first one up a few years ago, a good portion of that on a 2-month trip to Europe, but my current journal has remained mostly blank.

Congratulations to the site creator for producing such an excellent site. Very polished, clean design, putting hypertext to great use. RSS feeds are also available, under “Other formats” on the about page.
