Plus, starting from scratch when I've had nearly 60,000 visitors just seems a bit rubbish.
So, in celebration I've decided to completely do over the design of this blog. I'm staying right here and you can expect lots more historical posts in the future and I've got loads and loads of ideas.
I'd also like to extend an invitation to anyone who wants to do a guest post for me. If you're interested then please do drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - you'll all know by now that this blog is primarilly an Italian Renaissance/Seventeenth Century England blog but I will accept pretty much anything as long as it's historical.
There will also shortly be an announcement regarding a project I've got in the works. I really want to tell you all about it RIGHT now but it's gonna have to wait a little while. Keep your eyes peeled though and all will be revealed soon enough.
