July 2nd, 2013 – July 2nd, 2016
It’s been three years since I’ve started this “journey”.
Although I’ve been writing on websites for three years now, the amount of content I post has only just recently exploded.
I’d just like to thank some of the people, in the order that I’ve met them, that have been reading my stuff for a while now.
Robert Horvat: A history enthusiast, much like myself, Robert Horvat was one of the very first people to show interest in the site. He publishes grade-A material concerning the Byzantine empire and has an incredible monthly series called “What happened this month in history” on his main blog. You can check out “If It Happened Yesterday, It’s History” here, or read his fantastic projects over at thehistoryofthebyzantineempire.com. We’ve guest blogged for each other, too!
Sean Munger: A writer, historian, and climate change expert, Sean Munger is a man of many talents. From his novels and his podcast to his snarky tweets and passionate articles, you’re definitely missing out if you’re not following his blog. He’s also got a project (that’s unfortunately ending soon) over at Cry For Byzantium. One day when we figure out this nifty new recording thing, we’d love to have you on the podcast!
Ken Lohatepanont: A writer and student in Bangkok, Thailand, Ken was who I opened that first site with. Blogging for around seven years now, Ken’s passion lies within history, contemporary politics, and economics. An intern at the Thai Constitution Drafting Committee, interviewed by BBC about the turmoil of Thailand, and dedicated to political writing, Ken’s going places. Though History Republic is not what it used to be, you can check out his personal blog.
Elliot Declet: A brilliant but rather lazy coder (jokes), Elliot’s one of the main reasons why this server hasn’t self-destructed yet. Regular maintenance, frequent PHP changes, and several installments that literally Make This Site Great Again come from Elliot’s late night procrastination sessions. We also sold books together for a while. Editor of The Kaminski Code and a frequent co-writer, Elliot’s personal site is still in the works. But do give him some love over at his Twitter.
Michael Andoscia: I read The Revelation of Herman Smiley – a witty philosophical novella – a couple years ago, only to be astonished that my American History teacher was the author himself. A sociologist, historian, and political activist, Andoscia has been when of the major key influences in my personal life. For over two years, almost every weekday started off with political banter or historical conversation between us. You can check out his most recent project The Mad Sociologist here, and following him on Twitter is a must. He also recently took some time to guest in episode three of The Kaminski Code.
Blog Liberally: Although he doesn’t have a website, the self-defined “Shadow Chairperson” of political tweets has some of the best online content I follow. From relevant retweets to partisan debates and news reactions, you should check him out on twitter. He’s always been a huge help! He’s even guest blogged here before.
