Serially posted historical journals?

Tomorrow, Pepys' Diary
, which I've been following as it's been posted serially for the better part of a decade, will post its last entry. Are there any similar serially posted historical diaries that I can I follow in its absence?

For nine years, Phil Gyford has been posting one diary entry a day from Samuel Pepys' diary in "real time" -- same dates, just 300 or so years after Pepys first wrote his entries. It's been a fun ride, but tomorrow is Pepys' last entry and so also the end of the blog.
Are there any other historical blogs or websites that follow this format -- posting a historical diary in a day-to-day format, preferably with an RSS feed? I'm going to miss following Samuel Pepys, and I'm hoping to try to fill the hole with other follow-along historical diaries. Or something in the same vein?
Here's a sort-of similar question asked previously
four years ago. I'm more interested in diaries or historical accounts posted daily, rather than available in their entirety, so I can follow along as the events unfold.
