Samuel Pepys's Blog!

These are interesting times we live in, I tell you.

Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) had kept a personal diary that recorded everyday life in the 17th century. It's been published, printed, and reprinted a lot, and now, some inspired Brit did the honorable thing and got ol' Pepys the blog that he had always deserved: PepysDiary.com. Whee!

It's even syndicated on LiveJournal! Go ahead and add pepysdiary to your friends list.

I first read of Pepys in Helene Hanff's delightful, heartwarming 84 Charing Cross Road. Read it if you haven't. Read it again if you have.
