Historiann tells all! (And too much is sometimes plenty.)

I don’t quite reveal it all, but I’ve been invited to write recently for peer reviewed journals about the non-peer reviewed world-wide time-wasting blogosphere and my playground here, Historiann!  I know, friends:  Whodathunkit?  And who really cares? First of all, readers will find an answer to this question at least if they click on over to Common-place to … Continue reading Historiann tells all! (And too much is sometimes plenty.)
