New additions

Some of you may have noticed a few new additions on the blogroll to the left of my homepage. I've done a bit of editing lately, and there will be more to come over the holidays as a few of the listed blogs appear to have petered out. There are two new additions that have proven very interesting to me so far.

The first is publisher Ted Savas' A Publisher's Perspective. This is of course not a Civil War specific site, but his first view posts have been very interesting and his publishing house has brought us several great Civil War books in recent years.

The second is Wig-Wags, a blog by Rene Tyree, who is currently a graduate student and started a blog to help her keep her research organized. Although only a few posts old, her entries to date have been both interesting and well thought out.

Welcome to the blogosphere, both of you.

Thanks for the mention Don! It's amazing how well a blog template works for organizing facts, links, and thoughts. I continue to tweak Wig-Wags to make that information more accessible and as I learn new things - like how to make the font large enough to read. But the net-net is that my blog has become an extremely important tool in my student toolkit. The use of blogs for this purpose would make for an interesting discussion at some point down the road. I think it should be required of students to set one up. I can think of no better way to plug in.

Thanks again.
