This blog is all about my interest in history! I like to write about my insights on different historical topics! My favorite time-periods often change, but usually I like the Middle Ages or Antiquity. I’ve started getting interested in more modern history too such as WW1 and WW2. I think history taught in schools can be boring, but sprinkled with interesting little tidbits. The little tidbit type facts have always interested me the most. It’s also interesting to see how people lived “back then” and how it affects today. History has always fascinated me!

    Hi there, I enjoy your blog, but wonder if you would be able to post your sources? Some of what you say could be considered “common knowledge”, some is commentary, but some is some pretty interesting new information, and I would be interested to know where you got it from. Thanks :)

      I get most information off Wikipedia. I quote anything directly from the sites I use, but since this is an informal blog, I don’t cite sources like a bibliography, but I’ll post more information links with my posts if that’s what people want!


  3. I very much enjoyed your blog, History Is Interesting. I am working on a book-blog of my own, which can be seen at [one word] theoryofirony.com, then clicking on either the “sample chapter” or “blog” buttons at the top. My Rube Goldberg contraption of a brain processes the world with an odd, well-caffeinated kind of logic: Why is there an inverse proportion between the size of the print and the importance of the message? History. Literature. Art. Science. Religion. I call this eccentric thinking the Theory of Irony and if your busy schedule permits, give a read, leave a comment or create a link. In any event, best of luck with your own endeavor.
