National blogging day’s coming

Yes, working away in the British Library for my sins on a Saturday. I didn’t read the do’s and don’ts properly and was told off for using a pen! Though luckily these days you can use headphones, so enjoying a bit of music to keep me smiling while I’m working on the notes.

Talked to Diane earlier (today’s her 66th birthday) and apparently the National Trust are planning to have some kind of national blogging day. And it’s taking place on the 17th October, I kid you not. Who thinks up these things – not me..I mean it’s one way to capture a slice of history, but won’t making it an official ‘day’ influence the material? (Just being picky, actually sounds great fun.)

“We want as many people as possible to record a ‘blog’ diary of this one day which will eventually be stored by the British Library as a permanent historical record of our national life.” Ah, back to the British Library again.
