Last week I was pleased to discover that http://hobbinol.wordpress.com/ had given me a Liebster Blog ♥ award, so thank you very much to Hobbinol!!! this is for you:
Part of the fun of the award is getting to pass it on so, here are my 5 picks:
♥ The Medieval World
This is written by a good friend of mine (you may have noticed!) so I would like to nominate her first :) She does great posts about crazy cool medieval things (she can also be found lurking on twitter and facebook ) and in general is just a great person so you should check her out!
♥ Beauty of Whatever Kind
I think I discovered this blog one day via twitter and I was really struck by how very pretty it is (it lives up to its name!). The author writes posts on a number of different things including poetry and history and more recently life after a History MA.
♥ Ellimaanpaa Tale
I cant remember how I came across this blog! it is written by an artist and includes lots of posts about the fascinating things she has been creating.
♥ Loyaulte Me Lie
This blog (also on facebook) came to my attention a few months ago (again through twitter I think!) it is pretty new but the author has been working really hard doing lots of great posts. She writes very enjoyable posts on a range of themes which mainly relate to 16th/17thc history, which (obviously) is just the kind of history I like :)
♥ his story, her story
Another recent (twitter) discovery, this is a great new history blog which focuses (although not exclusively) on medieval and early modern women's history. It also encompasses themes around 19th and 20th century art, literature and culture.
