Sharon Howard's Early Modern Notes has to be nominated for the wonderful history posts with exciting material from the archives, but also its wealth of resources, its advice to PhD students, and indeed the support and help that Sharon gives to beginning bloggers!

Jonathan Dresner - 11/21/2005

wood s lot ( isn't a History blog in a strict sense but the use of historical materials and images is regularly wonderful.

Brian's Study Breaks ( is a great mix of fun, facts and big stuff.

Respectful Insolence ( is one of the most educational blogging experiences of my daily reads.

Hiram Hover - 11/2/2005

At the risk of this looking like an inside job for you cliopatricians, Caleb clearly deserves a nomination as well.

And on the chance that someone just passing by isn't already familiar with his blog, I'll supply the link:

I think that Sharon Howard's Early Modern Notes has to be among those considered.
