The Expanding 'Sphere
Our former colleague, Jon Dresner, created the categories into which the History Blogroll is organized. They've functioned remarkably well for us. Most of them continue to be cohesive and relatively modest in size: 16 History of Science & Technology blogs (Mills Kelly's edwired, for example), 31 Military History blogs (Brett Holman's Airminded, for example), 12 K-12 blogs for elementary and secondary teachers of history (Betsey Newmark's Betsey's Page, for example), 16 primary source blogs (from Samuel Pepys to Andy Warhol), and 20 blogs that are Primarily Non-English Language (Bert de Brun's Dutchblog Israel, for example). Some history blogs defy easy categorization and are currently listed as"Other." Don't let that put you off, however. Damn Interesting and Patahistory are, well, patadamninteresting.
The history ‘sphere has been expanding so rapidly, however, that some of the categories are bulging. In order to keep the list useful, soon we'll probably split a group of"Local History" blogs out of"Regions" and divide"Epochs and Events" into"Pre-Modern" and"Modern". It's all for the sake of helping history bloggers and their readers to find others with similar interests on the net.
