Hi all. It has probably become obvious to anyone that may have been following this Blog for some time that posts have become few and far between of late. I think I have more-or-less struggled over the years with times of poor health, but no more so than the current time. It is a many faceted problem and I won’t go into all of the details. Essentially, something needs to change (or a number of things really). Being still at work and clearly needing to continue to work in order to feed myself, etc, sadly it has beome time to change the way I do things around my many Blogs, etc. I have always enjoyed being online and keeping blogs and websites ticking over, but it has now become an almost impossible chore.
What will change is that this Blog will remain up as an archive, while also providing a gateway (via a link) to my Facebook Page (History – A Study of the Past), where I hope to continue posting curated articles, videos, etc. It is so much quicker and easier to do that there than having to write code, etc, here. Essentially, the only real change will be the location of the information. I have had the Facebook Page going for some time and have only just started to post everything there.
If you would like to continue the journey with me, please visit the Facebook Page linked to below – and thank you for visiting me here over the years.

History – A Study of the Past (Facebook Page)
The only other thing to note is that posts have already begun to appear there. Thanks all.
Welcome to the new look ‘History for Today’ Blog. Sure, it hasn’t changed a huge amount at this stage, but it does have a new appearance with a better header image, along with a few smaller subtle changes you may be able to pick. The ‘About’ page has also been updated, providing some context to the changes.
If you had previously visited the website associated with this Blog in the past, you will also see that that has also now changed. I have moved from my previous location to a dedicated Facebook Page – the site no longer being a lesser page of my Tracing Our History website (which has also moved to a Facebook Page). I am hoping this will be a much better fit for all of my history interests over time.
In short, the movement across to Facebook is all about finances – my inability to meet the massive increases in web hosting costs. It was just too expensive to continue and I thought I would have to just simply quit everything. Then I thought I would move to Facebook and have a fresh start, as well as giving ‘History – A Study of the Past,’ its very own dedicated Page there. It will of course take time to get the Page as I want it to be, as the move became necessary in a very short time frame (when I got the bill for the upcoming year of web hosting – it had more than doubled).
So please pop over to the Facebook Page and ‘like it’ and visit regularly to experience the growth of the Page. Thanks for visiting.
P.S. – There is also plenty of opportunity for enhanced interaction on the Facebook Page – commenting, etc.
