I am so excited to start up this additional blog for my website!
Yes, I still have my other one, Ginger Life and I post more personal things over there and share my experiences and thoughts about my various adventures. But THIS blog is all about American history!
It's like an extension of the Bag of Bones Podcast in where I can expound of some of the topics I've covered in an episode. I can use this platform to bring you updates on new developments and this is a great place to connect with you! I love your comments and feedback and here we can communicate.
I will also be adding smaller stories that I find that I think you'd like, but just aren't big enough to create an episode.
This will also be a great place to share with you when I get to visit a historical site, LIVE! (It might cross over with the content of Ginger Life, since I talk about travel over there, but it crossovers shouldn't happen too often.)
We are three seasons in on the Bag of Bones Podcast which means, I need to start upping my game. This blog will be just the beginning!
I'm hoping to eventually expand to a membership of sorts who want even more history in their lives. More episodes, more community and more merch! I've had so many requests for unique merchandise that if I keep putting it off, that would just come of as rude.
The website has also been approved to promote products found on Amazon so- if you see a highlighted passage, feel free to click on it to purchase. We will get a bit of a kickback every time you do. It will take a ton of clicks to cover the costs of hosting a podcast and website, but... every little bit helps and allow me to thank you in advance.
I thought it would be a great way to share with you some of the books I use in my research if you want to dive even deeper. One click, and it takes you right to it. (I know I appreciate those shortcuts when I'm searching for something!)
And I promise not to junk up the blog with annoying adds and blinking banners. I really hate that...
So, just to test it out... here's a link to the Bag of Bones Podcast Journal! Didn't know you needed one until now, did ya? This is all a learning curve for me as well, so please let me know if something isn't working right or I'm getting a little heavy handed with my linking.
In other changes, the Bag of Bones Podcast will no longer be produced by the Ragtag Network. For the time being, the past episodes and photos can still be seen over there (www.ragtagnetwork.com) but we are going to try and get things moved so they will all be conveniently located all in one space on one platform. We'll have the actual episodes, the topics page and now the blog... next the merchandise. It may take a minute, so please be patient with me!
I hope you'll join me and take advantage of these blog posts. Let me know if there's something you'd think would make a great post!
And we're off... Season 3 is going to be great!
A History Blog
This is a great way to connect over all things American history! Comment on podcast episodes, read quick pieces and extra segments that couldn't make a full episode!
