Some Blogs Are More Equal Than Others

posted by on July 29 at 14:00 PM


Maud brings news that Orwell’s diaries are going to be reproduced, in chronological order, on a blog starting on August 9th.

The Orwell Prize is delighted to announce that, to mark the 70th anniversary of the diaries, each diary entry will be published on this blog exactly seventy years after it was written, allowing you to follow Orwell’s recuperation in Morocco, his return to the UK, and his opinions on the descent of Europe into war in real time. The diaries end in 1942, three years into the conflict.

This is a great way to use a blog, I think. I’m pretty excited about it.

I redirect those JUBILEE CORNBALL FANS to the bottom of the rung to search for acusations over munchkins and blueballers mis-spelling and vandalism.

DBK, you really are a paranoid android, ain'tcha?

This sounds cool. Maybe someone will do one for Anais Nin too.

If you like that idea, you should check this out:
Lots of readers are in suspense about whether or not the soldier survived World War I.

I got a DBK name check!!! OMG!!!

Daniel...thank you. Seriously. I feel like part of the very mortar of these bricks now. Bless you.

Back OT, I wonder if Erica C. Orwell will chime in, sometime in about 1939, to bemoan the state of women in Poland...or bikers.
