You may have already heard about this, but George Orwell's
blog diaries are being published in blog form:
The Orwell Prize, Britain’s pre-eminent prize for political writing, is publishing George Orwell’s diaries as a blog. From 9th August 2008, Orwell’s domestic and political diaries (from 9th August 1938 until October 1942) will be posted in real-time, exactly 70 years after the entries were written.
I normally don't go in for reading personal diaries (though, I did - I admit - read Manuscripts Don't Burn a couple years ago), but for some reason this old-time diary blogging is quite intriguing (to me).
