Take part in the Biggest Blog EVER and go into the archives of the British Library FOREVER
17 October has been designated as a historic date. Heritage Link wants as many people as possible to record a ‘blog’ diary of this one day - 17 October - which will eventually be stored by the British Library as a permanent historical record of our national life at the beginning of the 21st century. This is a one off, one day diary done on a mass scale – that will itself make history.

Please include in your blog how history impacted on you that day – whether it be simply travelling past an historic landmark, discussing family history at home, watching another repeat of Only Fools and Horses, or listening to Dad’s 60’s music, again!  

What do you have to do?

Write your blog diary on   Diaries can be added from 17 to 31 October 2006.
