Congrats to this year’s Cliopatria Award winners, recognizing the best in history blogging. Lots of great stuff to add to the ol’ feed reader. No explicitly public history-themed blogs made the cut this year, but a history of science blog did win best individual blog, so at least one of my teams was represented. Visit Cliopatria for the judges’ remarks on the blogs.
