History in blogs

Cliopatria's Manan Ahmed and Ralph Luker have teamed up in the new issue of Perspectives (newsletter of the American Historical Association) to introduce historians to the blogosphere.

In "Blogging: It's Easier Than You Think!" Ahmed defines terms like "CMS" and "RSS" and steers readers toward Blogger, TypePad, and even Technorati. Meanwhile, Luker uses "Were There Blog Enough and Time" to provide a brief history of weblogs and a description of several prominent history bloggers.

Paging Dr. K ... and all the LeTourneau history students who need to put their work online ....
