If he were still alive, would George Orwell be blogging? Some of my fellow WordPress bloggers seem to think so; they’ve taken a number of Orwell’s diary entries and turned them into a blog, publishing them on the very day of the year on which he wrote them.
I enjoy popping in here once in a while, but I’d recommend these to committed Orwellians only. If you already know and love his work, you can see how many of these quite mundane observations feed into greater works to come. If you haven’t read Orwell, you may wonder why we care just how many eggs his chickens laid that day. Anyway, have a look here if you like.
