I pretended it’s 2005 and started a blog. Or another blog, I suppose.
Meet Don’t Be Doomed, in which I learn about history through reading a whole bunch of books.
The “About” page and “Welcome” post lay out the scope and rationale, but basically, I’ve been reading a lot of history nonfiction over the past several years, and I realized I needed to improve my retention. So I set this up to share and think about what I’m learning and steer people toward good history books.
I’ll aim for about one post a week over there. So if, for example, you’ve ever found yourself wondering “What was the deal with Chester Arthur?” (and who hasn’t?), I can help you out with that.
