Five Years of History Rhymes

It is really hard to believe that History Rhymes has been around now for five years. I have scheduled this entry to be posted exactly five years to the minute after my my first introduction post. So much has happened in the time since I wrote that post that it makes it seems as though […]

How I research articles

Lately several people have written to me asking how I research articles for History Rhymes. I feel, therefore, it is appropriate to address this question publicly so that everyone who would like to know has the opportunity to find out. The research process I use is pretty straightforward and is the culmination of experienced gained […]

New Design

I am pleased to announce that History Rhymes now has a brand new design. It is a completely custom design I have been working on for quite some time now and I really hope you enjoy it! The new site was designed to be easy to read and yet mimic the way books looked that […]

Starting Anew

There comes a time in the history of just about every blog where the author has to pen a post apologizing for an extended absence. That time for me is now. I have not made any updates to History Rhymes for the majority of the year (since January!). Much has happened in that time and […]

Some more changes

Update: I have since deleted the Twitter account mentioned below meaning the “historyalex” account is no longer mine. I know it has been a while since I’ve posted anything meaningful, but I’ve been incredibly busy focusing on my MA and all the work that goes along with that. The past couple of days I’ve made […]

Some changes

Things have been extremely hectic as of late and unfortunately, I really haven’t had any time to post anything on History Rhymes.

Temporary Outage (Spambots)

I apologize for the temporary outage. I’ve been getting hit pretty hard with spambots and my hosting service shut down service to my account. I think I’ve got it taken care of after doing some careful research about redirecting traffic coming from spambots so that they don’t hit the server anywhere near as hard. If […]

New ‘Featured’ Page

Just as a quick announcement, I’ve spent quite a bit of time today getting History Rhymes back up and running at full capacity after switching themes. The new theme broke some of my old pages, specifically the Archives and Links pages, but now those problems are resolved and they’ve both been slightly redesigned. Aside from […]

New Theme

I’ve decided it was time to update the look of History Rhymes to something a bit more professional-looking. This new theme I chose, called Lightword is a modern theme that supports the features of WordPress 2.9 which is what powers History Rhymes. The old theme did not support all of the new features, such as […]
