Last week, publication began of what is being dubbed ‘Britain’s biggest blog’. Called One Day in History, the project attempted to build a snapshot of British life by encouraging thousands of people across the UK to record a 650-word diary of their day on October 17th. The results are being stored on a special website to create what the organisers are calling a “fascinating social history archive” of everyday life for future generations. The project deliberately aimed to record mundane details rather than exciting events, because that is believed to be what people will find most extraordinary hundreds of years in the future.
