Learning History, YouTube Style

YouTubers are coming up with fun and unusual ways to teach history – here are some of my favourites

Over at my old blogspot, I happily talked about the awesome weirdness of YouTube history videos: as a cure for insomnia and as a Trojan horse hiding behind porny thumbnails.

What I didn’t give YouTube credit for is that many videos provide new and exciting ways to learn about history. It’s an especially great gateway for people who aren’t necessarily interested in watching traditional history documentaries (I’m thinking specifically of my kids!)

I wanted to share three favourite YouTube history series that I’ve recently discovered with you. Don’t worry, while they’re educational, there’s still some awesome weirdness in there.


Announcing the Self-Publishing Help Page

As I’ve used this website, on and off, to chronicle my experiences publishing my own fiction, I’ve noticed that posts related to self-publishing advice attract the most readers. (I wish more people were interested in the actual results of that work, but oh well.)  So I’m making a small change in the organization of this site that I hope will make a big difference for those readers.

I’ve created a hub page, to act as a central repository of all the stuff I’ve posted on the subject, as well as some key reference pages I’ve found elsewhere on the internet. As always, I want to emphasize that the advice I’m pointing to are things that have worked for me. There is no one right way, but I hope to at least give you some ideas to explore.

The hub page is a work in progress. You’ll see some incomplete sections, with just placeholders for information that I will add in the future. But I thought as I start revisiting different topics as I work on publishing my next novel, I might as well document it and add it to the page. And I’ll keep adding links as I find good advice on the internet.
