It’s a blog. About history.

So I was sifting through reams of Google News Alerts, slightly miffed that there wasn’t some nice, handy blog that had already done all the sifting for me, when it struck me like the proverbial bolt of lightning that non-laziness is an actual option. Hell, if I’m doing it for myself, why not post the products for all my brothers and sisters in history nerddom?

My interests are primarily European ancient and medieval, but I’m quite undiscriminating when it comes to history, so I’ll pretty much blather about anything that catches my eye. I also intend to make a note of all the topically relevant books I read, and a list of all the topically relevant books sitting in a pile glaring at me.

I shall endeavor not to suck. That is all.

Thank you! It’s great to see a familiar name. Funny you should say it looks comfy around here. One of the big selling points of this theme for me was the FF-like color scheme. I like what I like, ya know? :)

/me likes the way it looks, especially the toe tags.

Be sure to put lots about the Black Death in the blog.

You’re a toe tag! You’re lucky the Black Death is high on my agenda.
