Blogging About A Blog About Blogs

As I’ve said before, I love Pinterest. I always find something new on it, something to delight. Yesterday I came across a pin of History Blogs. Of course I lost them and in a search to find them, I discovered many more.

I searched Pinterest on “History Blogs” and this is an example of what I found–
The History Files – an eclectic compilation of history topics, not Regency, but lots of interesting stuff.
Scandalous Women – by our Risky friend, Elizabeth Kerri Mahon
In theWords of Women – another “women in history” blog, but who can ever tire of that?

But I wanted to see if there was something more specific to the Regency, so I looked at another Pinterest entry, “Regency and History” blogs. Very cool! Look at this!
Regency History – the first entry I came across was one giving links to online copies of La Belle Assemble
Historical Trinkets – the entry there was about Caroline of Brunswick.
Food History Jottings – there’s a blog about a syllabub machine and one about Christmas pudding and more
Regency Library 
Georgian London
Jane Austen’s World (one of my favorites)
The House Historian

I don’t really understand why I didn’t find Risky Regencies on one of the sites. Or Number One London. But, besides that, there’s a bunch of history treasure here!

What’s your favorite History blog?…besides Risky Regencies, that is!

    Oh, Diane, I wish I had the time to delve into all those intriguing links!
    I haven’t checked out Pinterest because I know I would get happily lost there but I have a story to finish.

    I like the History Hoydens a lot, though I don’t visit as often as I’d like.

    I don’t know why anyone can ever complain of boredom. So much out there…

    etymonline.com is my word dictionary that gives the history of specific words. I’m always checking words to make sure I’m allowed to use them. 🙂

  3. I like History Hoydens too, Elena. Always have great posts! And onelondonone is my other favorite. The WordWenches often have great posts on Regency era topics as well.

    I got lost on that englishhistoryauthors blog and then I fell asleep!

    Thanks for posting these favorites. Odd that History Hoydens and Word Wenches didn’t get on those blog lists. Maybe I didn’t look far enough.

    love etymonline.com, Judy! I depend on it!

    I like both Word Wenches and Petticoats and Pistols. Two different focuses, but both give good research information and have interesting posts.
