If you’ve been following the conversation here, you already know that Robert and I have added a new blog category to our sites, Civil War “Information Compilation” Blogs. This is to identify those Civil War websites that, like Bull Runnings, use blog platforms to also serve as a repository for data. Not all the same types of data, not all in the same ways. For instance, you’ll find my stuff listed under Bull Run Resources over to the right and in the header, with pages set up for indexing. It’s not perfect, but so far it works. Some of the blogs I’ve listed in this category don’t organize by pages (though I think they should, of course!). I’m hoping – and I think Robert’s hoping too – that this may help bring other similar blogs out in the open, and more importantly help us like minded folks to make our projects more user friendly and organized, and to more fully realize potentials. If you have a similar blog and think you should be listed, or if you know of anyone you think should be listed, let me know.
