What are you doing on Sunday?

Sunday 12th May 2013 hosts an opportunity to submit a one day diary to the Mass Observation Study.

12th May 2013You can read about the history of The Mass Observation Project HERE and can see the details of submitting a one day diary for Sunday 13th May.

Below is a small video of the submissions that were made to a similiar event, back on 12th May 2010.

How to take part: (details from the Mass Observation Project)
  • Diaries MUST be in electronic form - emails or as email attachments (as word documents or pdfs, preferably)
  • You should include a brief self portrait: your age, where you live, whether you are married or single, your present job or occupation if you are working and any other information that you think is important to record.
  • If 12th May was a typical day for you please say so. If not, please say why it wasn’t. Any reflections on the day and on how you felt while keeping the diary are welcome.
  • So that we can add your diary to the rest of the Archive for the future, please include the statement below at the end of your diary. If you don’t attach this statement, we won’t be able to keep your diary or make it part of the Archive.
“I donate my 12th May diary to the Mass Observation Archive. I consent to it being made publicly available as part of the Archive and assign my copyright in the diary to the Mass Observation Archive Trustees so that it can be reproduced in full or in part on websites, in publications and in broadcasts as approved by the Trustees"

Please submit your responses by email


  1. This sounds like such an interesting idea.

  2. Not sure I totally understand, though it sounds interesting. I'm working my way through blogs on the road trip post a-z, and got involved in another blog challenge so think my plate is full at the moment. I see from a quick look at your profile we have a lot in common. Crafts, travel, history, genealgoy. Nice to meet you.

    1. Sandy, thanks for stopping by. The Mass Observation Project is usually open to submissions to specific people, so this is the one day that anyone in the UK can submit a diary.

      Simpy write a bit about yourself and what you did on a specific day, in this case 12th May and submit to the email address above. You must ensure the information in the text that starts "I donate...." is included otherwise your submission will not be added to the archive.
