Storytelling by blog: the Pepys Diary

Posted by

Another example of blog-based storytelling is the Pepys Diary.  Each day this blog republishes a diary entry from Samuel Pepys’ diary, on the corresponding date.

The Pepys Diary

Beyond the basic content, the Pepys Diary adds annotations and background material.

Importantly for storytelling purposes, each blog post can contain comments.  Those comments play a role in how we perceive those entries.  Readerly reactions, extra information from specialists: these add more content of all sorts to the seventeenth-century core.
