Twitter and Instagram: Historians in the Digital Age

Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest etc. ever thought of these digital social media platforms as a method of research or public engagement as an historian or museum professional? More and more people in 2019 have social media profiles that highlight their work to a wider, often global audience in a way that people twenty years ago could only dream off. I have and do use Twitter (and soon Instagram) daily to interact with historians across the world and to catch-up on the latest historical research and news whilst also promoting myself as an historian, blogger and curator.

Self-Love on Valentine’s Day

Before you think this post is about something sordid, it’s not. Sorry to disappoint you but this isn’t that type of blog. This post, and the second part next week with YouTube video (!), is about how important it is to take care of yourself every day of the year, not just Valentine’s Day. Basically, this post is about ‘self-love’ twenty-four-seven.
