We like to think of our Nerdy History Girl lives as being a constant delight of silk gowns, old scandals, men behaving badly, and, of course, shoes.
Alas, would that it were so! As much as we enjoy being NHGs, we're first and foremost writers, with DEADLINES. Right now those deadlines are looming terrifyingly large, and so we're taking a week or so off from blogging, Tweeting, Pinning, and Facebook-ing to tend to business. We'll see you again soon on the other side – and Happy Valentine's Day!
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
