The History Commons Blog is up and running. Here’s where you can find the news of our transition to History Commons 2.0 (yes, we are excited!), information about new groups, how you can become part of the Commons, and more. See our Welcome page (link above) for more info on what’s going on with the Commons Blog.

We want to know what you think. Just click and comment away. We particularly want to know what you think of the site: how it works for you, how it can be made to work better, what capabilities and functions you’d like to see added, etc. Your opinions matter to us. Join the conversation. Better yet, join the community!




  1. This is a great idea. I just signed up on History Commons, and I am proud to help however I can. I stated my wordpress Blog, American Everyman, just over a year ago and I chose this very Theme at first. kept it for 6 months. Kinda miss it actually. Any, good job. Great to see this happening.

  2. Willy, we’re glad to have you aboard. Don’t hesitate to contact me: purplesage23 at yahoo dot com , or anyone else in the Commons if you need a hand becoming more involved. (We’ve got some help material coming for the blog, but we’re holding off until the site redesign is implemented before posting it.)

    It is a nice theme, isn’t it? I’m thinking about replacing the pen graphic with something else. Any ideas?

  3. First-rate site! Sorry I can’t contribute more than I do right now. But I wanted to say on this website somewhere that I’m a history prof and I recommend this site to my students as both an example of grassroots history and a first draft of recent history. Journalism has become the business of grasping cyphers largely, and while there is some good reporting, no one connects the dots. You guys do so without fanfare, calmly laying out the reporting that’s been done so the readers can come to their own conclusions. I hope people will continue discovering this site and it becomes a resource for more and more people and soon!

    Thanks for all your good work!

  4. Tenstring, thanks for the kind words. I know how difficult it is to find time outside the classroom, but we appreciate what you do. If you have any students interested in the kind of civil journalism and research that we do, send them over! We’d love to have them. Thanks again.
