How to Be a Social Reader

Sometimes I think that I’m pretty up on what the cool kids are into- streets ahead, you might say-, and sometimes I am years behind and have literally no idea what’s going on. Reading has always been a pretty huge part of my life, so obviously I’ve been avidly using GoodReads to catalogue, research, and review all of the books that I read, listen to, and want to find. However, in the span of about three days I was introduced to not one but two new social networks for reading and I have no idea how I hadn’t heard of them before now! Here is a quick intro and review of LibraryThing and Litsy, to hopefully spur you on in your reading pursuits!

Group Travel Pinterest Board Opportunity

Hello everyone!

Happy Saturday- this is a short but happy post! I’ve started a group Pinterest board for travel, and I’m happy to add anyone to it. You may pin up to three pins a day, and share as many pins from others as you like! Any travel related pins can be shared here- travel guides, to-do lists, tips, questions, memories, stories, whatever you would like.

You can find the blog here at Travel- Global (Group Board), and you can join the board by emailing me at anhistorianabouttown@gmail.com with the subject line “Group Travel Board” OR leave your email address in the comments down below!

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!

Top Instagram Posts, April 2017

Now that I am spending a decent amount of time and effort on Instagram and I’m slowly connecting with people, I thought I would do a monthly round up of the most popular posts on my Instagram account! Although most of the pictures I post are related to the blog post of that day, I will try to give a little more background into the image itself. This was supposed to be the top five pictures but of course there was a three way tie in the fourth spot, so you get six! And if you would like to connect on Instagram, please leave your Instagram handle in the comments!

An Historian About Town on Pinterest!

Hello all! An Historian About Town is slowly moving forward on social media, beginning with Pinterest! You can find me here at An Historian About Town, it will have most everything pinned from my posts (that makes sense to pin). It currently only has a few posts worth of pins, but I will be working in the upcoming weeks to pin as much of my older posts as possible! I will also be pinning everything from my new posts going forward. If you are on Pinterest, please feel free to follow me for some more blogging and lifestyle adventures! I’m looking for people to follow, so please comment with your username!

Until tomorrow,

Ahhhh, social networking.

This is the twenty-first century, so yes- I have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Goodreads, Steepster, Reddit,  Pinterest, Academia, LinkedIn, and this blog. And they all serve different purposes. I have fully embraced social networking. I understand why people shut down different accounts, but I can’t see myself shutting down the top three of mine. I enjoy seeing what people are up to, it motivates me, and makes me excited for those I know and don’t know.

In order of use:
