Two Blogs to Cherish

Jun 3, 2010 by

Things have been pretty busy lately but I’m glad to say I’ve been steered towards a couple of great blogs that have proved to be really pleasant diversions. I thought I’d share them with you here.

I think of myself very much as a nerdy history girl, so was delighted to find some like-minded individuals at the Two Nerdy History Girls blog. Written by bestselling authors Loretta Chase and Susan Holloway Scott, it’s a cornucopia of quirky historical facts ranging from proper conduct between married persons of the 1830s to the miseries of Regency London. These ladies are experts at winkling out amusing and surprising facts, and the blog is great to dip into.

For those of you who share my twin enthusiasms for Georgian architecture and landscape, David Nice’s blog, I’ll Think of Something Later is a very engaging read, touching on subjects such as Georgian Dublin and Wotton House in Buckinghamshire. Nice’s natural writing style and his lovely photographs make you feel as if you’re strolling around some splendid grounds engaged in erudite conversation. Do have a look if you can.

    These are indeed blogs to cherish! Thanks for the post.

    I know you are already a (much appreciated) follower of my ON Life, Love and Accidental Adventures blog, but if you get a change, would you mind popping over to my new blog about Marie Antoinette? I would love to have you as a follower of that one as well…and to hear your thoughts!

    All the best and thanks for the fun reads.
