Update on women historians who blog

Ralph Luker at Cliopatria has posted a thoughtful response to my lament that more women aren't blogging about history. He includes a terrific round-up of women historians who blog.

Most of the anonymous bloggers he mentions I already read, but the women who blog under their own names were largely new to me. I think this is because many of them don't appear on the blogrolls of the blogs I read regularly--and blogrolls (and in-post links from other bloggers) are the primary way I find academic blogs. FWIW, I'm subscribed to the RSS feeds for approximately 200 blogs by women academics.

I'll be adding these to my blogroll, as well as the Research & Academia blogroll at BlogHer soon.

In the meantime, if you have any women bloggers to recommend who blog regularly about history, please leave links to their blogs in the comments.

I'm not quite regular yet, but I'll be doing more women's history blogging as of now... so I guess I count!

I write mostly for my young twentysomething (almost-feminist) peers... but with the pinickity referencing of a trained historian on her winding way to a PhD....
