The parting of ways

I looked for images of "a parting of ways" and kept getting stills from Doctor Who. So here's a fork in the road, instead. (Credit: Jonathan Billinger)

Back a while ago, I mentioned that I was going to be teaching some history courses and set up a blog called Sillyhistory to cover material related to those courses. Well, I’m broadening the scope of Sillyhistory to cover all historical work I’m doing. Hereafter, unless the historical material is related to the fiction I write, it will appear in Sillyhistory, not here.

I know some of you follow this blog for my historical pieces, and it is an inconvenience to switch, or to follow both blogs. However, my work as a historian is cropping up in several other places, and I need one blog to hold them all together. And it has to be Sillyhistory.

Sillyverse will keep going, addressing my own work as a writer of fiction as well as talking about the works of others. So pieces such as the Atherton review that I just posted will continue. And sometimes there will be personal pieces that belong here. That one on caring for a parent and the one about growing up with all sorts of connections to cemeteries belong here, too. But straight history? That’ll be over in Sillyhistory in future.

I hope you’ll join me over at the other blog and follow Sillyhistory, too. Whether or not, I’ll still be talking with you here.

About Brian Bixby

I enjoy history because it helps me understand people. I'm writing fiction for much the same reason.

  1. I am already following Sillyhistory. šŸ˜›

  2. You aren’t parting ways as in to leave and never return – you just have a different avenue to keep all of the historical parts of you in one place. Got it.

    That headline had me worried for a moment. But it’s okay; I’m already a follower of Sillyhistory.
