To cover a variety of topics, without overwhelming this site’s storage, the link below takes you to an offsite blog. Personally I was shocked and surprised to find myself doing this. I always considered blogs quite frankly blah-blah-blog! This is not that kind of blog. I’ve learned to appreciate bloggers who give useful ideas .
Past posts spotlight Summer Reading plans -- Use the topic tag “Summer Reading.” Ideas there often relate to nature programs, too, such as 2014’s astronomy stories which will get a second look in 2019.
Additionally I have moved another blog to Storytelling + Research = LoiS, “Michigan’s ‘Fighting Fifth Infantry’”, which contains Detroit newspaper accounts of this important regiment. It was earlier a separate blog during the Civil War Sesquicentennial. Programs as Liberetta Lerich Green use this information as part of its research when discussing the Civil War, since her brothers were in the Fifth.
Each week find ideas at Storytelling + Research = LoiS. For example, there are many posts on the World War I program about a Michigan “Hello Girl” stationed in France
During the month additional posts of public domain stories appear as part of the blog’s series titled “Keeping the Public in Public Domain.”
