With the blog now five years old, I am posting a recap of some of the various types of posts I use so those new to the blog will understand their purpose.

HISTORY TIDBIT: A short piece of information regarding some aspect of history that might encourage youngsters to find out more.

HISTORY LURE: Suggestions for sparking an interest in history through something else kids are interested in.

HISTORY MYSTERY: Pieces of history that people still don’t know the answer to, such as what happened to the little princes in the Tower, or the identity of Jack the Ripper.

HISTORY SHARE: A site with information I find interesting and want to share.

HISTORIC KIDS: Kids can sometimes relate to history better if it involves people their own age.

HISTORIC BAD IDEA: People don’t always go down in history because they did something clever or right, and kids often find historic failures and mistakes more entertaining than successful ventures.

HISTORIC THEME: Ways parents/teachers can incorporate history into modern life, such as specific-era themed birthday parties, or the history behind popular culture, or the names of months / days of the week.

HISTORIC WORTH A VISIT: Places of historic interest people can take kids to if they happen to be in the area.

MAKING A GAME OF HISTORY: History-based games and activities.

TRIVIA TRAIL: A history-based question parents/teachers can challenge kids to find the answer to.

HISTORIC WHO AM I?: Similar to Trivia Trail.

HISTORICAL MOVIE IDEAS: History-Based TV & Movie Recommendations suitable for kids and teens.

DON’T FORGET THE ‘STORY’: Book recommendations for various age groups (including adult). The word ‘history’ contains the word ‘story’, and historical fiction is a great way to foster a love of history itself.

BOOK PROMOTION: Interviews, with authors who write historical fiction.

SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION: From time to time I also promote the historical middle grade fiction I write.

HOLIDAY / SEASONAL POSTS: Acknowledgement of well-known celebrations and/or information pertaining to same.
