Me, to be specific.
Up until now, I haven’t made my e-mail address available here on the blog, mainly to avoid having my inbox filled with incoherent rants in case I posted something that set somebody off.
Lately, though, folks have started getting in touch with me about speaking engagements and various other things that they’d probably prefer to handle through e-mail, but since they had no address, they’ve had to leave a comment here on the blog. So I’ve decided to set up a new e-mail account and post it on the “About the Blog” page for anybody who’d like to contact me. The address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Truth be told, I needed a new e-mail address anyway. The one I’ve used since high school is both difficult to spell and embarrassingly geeky, so I’m going to try to phase it out. It didn’t occur to me when I was a teenager that someday I’d actually have to put that Hotmail handle on a résumé. Come to think of it, I wonder how many potential jobs it’s cost me already. Oh, well. What’s done is done.
Since I mentioned speaking engagements, let me add that I’ve done quite a few public lectures, presentations, and seminars for historical societies, museums, and so on, and I’m always happy to do more. So feel free to contact me if you’d like me to come and talk about the American Revolution, colonial history, Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, regional history, museums, preservation, or the past in general.
