The Basics

For the new people scoping out the blog and wondering what to do, here are the basics.

1. Become a follower please. You don't have to be a follower to look at the posts, but it would help me tremendously and I will love you forever. You can click on "Follow" at the top left or the Follow with the Google "g" above the pics of the other followers. If you have a gmail or Yahoo account, this is easy. Your info will transfer over. If not, what you'll actually do is create a gmail account. Don't forget your username and password.

2. Comment on the posts. You can click on the title of specific posts to get the comment screen. Feel free to comment on any post you like- to me or to another follower. I would love to get to the point that we have a digital dialog going on! The older posts are in the archives at the bottom left if you want to check them out.

3. Lurking is fine. I don't care if you lurk (read the posts and comment anonymously) so long as you keep things PG-13. We have a couple of younglings in our History's Mysteries family.

Please tell your friends, family, colleagues etc. about the blog. Everybody is welcome. Don't forget to share ideas for future posts and let me know if there is a topic that you would like to discuss yourself in a guest blogger post.

Thanks for being here!


  1. Okay so I think I finally figured this thing out. lol. Anyways I think I am added as a follower not.:) See you in class, Amelia N.

  2. Great! I'm sorry it's so confusing. Believe me, it's much easier than it was when I first started the blog. And, what can I say, it's free!
    Thanks for joining.

  3. I love that you just said "younglings". Does the Franklin class have a test or something this week?

  4. Nope, there's not another test until the final. We are doing the essay on the 30th though (in Franklin).
