The biggest blog in history

Not us unfortunately but we're getting there.

The 'One Day In History' project aims to record a blog diary for today - 17 October -  involving as many people as possible. The posts will be stored by the British Library as a historical record of our national life.They are looking for not just the minutiae of your everyday life but also how history is affecting you, how you are interacting with the past etc. You might want to describe how you went to a museum, listened to a piece of old music, had a chat with someone about your family tree or looked at this blog (you knew there was going to be a plug in there somewhere). Mine would be too dull to contemplate so, despite quite liking the idea, I might have to spare the nation.

This is being run by the National Trust and is part of the the History Matters campaign.
