Mass Observation Archive blog post: Saturday 12th May 2018 Would you like to keep a one-day diary for Mass Observation?
In 2018 the Mass Observation Archive will be repeating its annual call for day diaries, capturing the everyday lives of people across the UK. The written diaries will be stored in the Archive at The Keep and be used by a wide range of people for research, teaching and learning. This includes academics and students, schools, writers, producers, artists, community and special interest groups and the general public.
How to take part
Write as much as you can about what you do, what you talk about, what you eat and drink, what you buy or sell, what you are working on, the places you visit, the people you meet, the things you read, see and hear around you, how you are feeling and, of course, what you yourself think.
You can also take part on Twitter. Tweet your day using the hashtag #12May18
The Mass Observation Archive is working in partnership with Action for M.E during M.E Awareness Month to record people’s experience of living with the chronic neurological condition myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E) on the 12th May. We are also accepting diaries via text message. The number is 07537404300.
