A Call to Action: Please Participate!

July 19, 2010

As an experiment, let’s ask for some response and see what we get.

According to the stat tracker on WordPress, the RoH blog has gotten 18 views since I posted my last entry! Woohoo! That pales in comparison to the entry I wrote pairing Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin'” with the Declaration of Independence (354 page views in 1 day!). It has been a trying year for this space intellectually, but whatever. I’m trying to rectify that.

If you’re reading this, go ahead a post a comment and share with us what your FAVORITE time period/event/person in history was when you were in school. I’m interested in seeing if there is a diversity in topics. I myself am in a Civil War rut right now, thanks in large part to PBS re-airing Ken Burns’ The Civil War as well as regularly hiking at a Civil War battlefield right around the corner from my new home in Kennesaw, GA. It’s hard to escape the Civil War when you keep seeing the memories. I’m not complaining, but I’d like to do something new.

So, if you have the guts to participate, please do. I’d like to see if I can do something fun here and start fresh. If you haven’t read any of the old entries, start from the beginning and check them out. I think they are a fun little diversion from the normal routine. Thanks!


Coming Soon: More Records, More History.

April 20, 2010

Be aware. Records of History will be making a comeback. I just needed some time to listen to more music and learn more about history.

Also I am about to be unemployed again (hopefully only briefly during the summer between school years), so this will allow more time to put towards educatin’ y’all’s lives.

Take this opportunity to peruse the archives of this blog and get an idea of what sorts of things we’ve done here in the past.

I am open to suggestions, comments, and insulting notions.
