I love blogging about politics and trying to bring perspective to the issues. I’m also very interested in different forms of blogging. So, I’ve decided to start working on a blog about my latest research project. For the summer of 2012, I am researching late 19th Century Volga-German immigration to the Midwest, especially to Kansas. The blog is called “The Challenges to Volga-German Historical Memory.” I will be blogging there for much of the summer, since this project is going to take up much of my time. This new blog will give a glimpse into the research process and talk about historical criticism. I also feel this is another avenue historians can use to discuss their research in a blog format. Basically, it’s an experiment, and I want to see what happens. I will continue to blog here about politics and current events periodically if something tickles my fancy that I want to talk about, so don’t worry! I hope you continue to look at both as I slowly attempt to build a media empire one URL at a time.
New blog address: volgagermanmemory.blogspot.com (I’m too cheap right now to pay for a real URL).
