Eighty Key History Blogs

I came back from Albuquerque to find that Ralph Luker has made a list of eighty key history blogs.

With that reminder that life on the internet is fleeting, there is a group of history blogs that seem to me to be central to history blogging. I don't presume to say that they are The Top 100 Liberal Arts Professor Blogs. Nor do I even suggest that they are better than other history blogs that are not on the list. I do mean to say that, without them, history education on the internet would be seriously impoverished. Below the fold are 80 history blogs that I recommend. You'll recognize some of them. Others, you may not yet have discovered:

That's a really great, and very diverse, list. There are a few I've actually never read before, and will have to start reading at least occasionally; but of those that I've read, there are some splendid ones. As you can see, Siris was listed; it's quite an honor to represent history of philosophy among some of the bright lights of the history blogosphere.
