Hello everyone and happy Monday! I have some wonderful news related to the blog. After quite a bit of thinking and pondering, I have decided to make An Historian About Town more focused on history. While the blog won’t solely look at history, it will be playing a much larger role! History is what I truly love, and I am excited to share more of that with everyone- I think that I have always received fantastic responses to my history posts, and I’m looking forward to my shift to including more history on the blog!
What Will Stay the Same?
Overall, I don’t think that there is going to be a huge change! Style File Friday posts will remain the same, with a small dose of history added when appropriate. My culture posts will also be much of what they already are- ballet and theatre, reading recommendations, and general etiquette and hosting.
What Will Change?
My career related posts are going to shift to history posts, though! While my career/ personal development posts appeal to my readers who are closer to my age, my history posts appeal to a much larger group, and I will admit I have more fun writing them. (If you have career or personal development related questions, please feel free to email me or ask on Instagram, I am still more than happy to chat and help!) My history posts might be book recommendations (like my Upcoming History Book post), historical travel plans, documentaries that I love, or perhaps even the history of a place or person!
My Life Tip posts will finish up this week (I’m pretty sure that I’ve covered all requests!), and Wednesdays will shift to “What Happened Wednesday” with a short and interesting fact of episode from history.
Why the Change?
I spend the majority of my (admittedly little) free time doing historical research, whether it be serious or casual, and history is what I’m passionate about! I love using the lens of the past to view the world. I’ve been enjoying writing my historical posts immensely and although I know that it might limit my readership, your blog should always be what you love!
Blogmas will of course be happening again! While I’ve only shared a few planning holiday posts so far- because if you release your gift guide after about mid-November, you will have missed me entirely- Blogmas will be back for December 1st! Blogmas will have it’s own schedule, but that will be shared closer to the start.
