Using Orwell’s diary entries for a blog–what a great idea.

Found some discussion here: http://tinyurl.com/6y4j3l

Plus, diary of Samuel Pepys as a blog: http://www.pepysdiary.com/

This is so awesome. Which proves that I am a total book nerd. The Pepys one in particular–to have the words from 1665 in a modern day blog format makes me laugh.
