Changed platforms... again

I know it's been a very long time since I've posted here, but I've decided to get back into it. You'll notice that the look of the blog has changed a bit, and that's because I've changed platforms again (and I plan on this being the last time) to Blogger. I had been using Squarespace-- while their templates are pretty, they're now much more geared to businesses rather than simple blogs. I figured I'd go back to (free) Blogger.

Things have been really busy with work and also with some ongoing health issues that my father has been dealing with. And another reason I haven't been blogging much is, frankly, I don't find it very enjoyable to blog exclusively abut genealogy. Not sure why not, because genealogy is certainly a big interest of mine... it just seems a usually dry topic to write about, with not much room for wit or opinion (which I enjoyed in my former, defunct blog, which was focused on political, religious, and social issues).

So we're changing focus a little bit here-- I'll still write about genealogy, but I'm also going to write about other things pertaining to history, especially social history. Hopefully this will get me posting here a little bit more often than once a year...

In the meantime, a safe and happy Independence Day to you.
