What is MakingHistory?

I’m a historian, teacher, researcher, and writer. This is my blog and the place I share work in progress. The blog is free and you can get access to all of the work in progress with a paid subscription.

Why subscribe?

Subscribe to get blog posts about what I’m working on. This is free. There’s also an option to join a “paid subscription” community, which supports the work I put into this and will entitle you to additional, more in-depth content.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

Join the community!

Be part of a community of people who share your interests. The paid subscription (which is only $5 per month or $30 annually) will give you access to all the stuff I’m working on, including books I’m writing in more or less realtime.

I typically have several projects running simultaneously, which I’ll subdivide into “channels” listed in the header on my page. Things like Note-Making, Primary Sources, and Freethought which includes my biography of Dr. Charles Knowlton.

In addition to writing little blog essays, I often turn these musings into audios or videos. I post some of those on YouTube and some on Vimeo. All will be available here, and most as part of the free membership.

So, welcome aboard!
