How to Grow Your Blog Using the History Blogs Directory

I had a great response from bloggers asking to be in the history blog directory. So, a huge thank you to everyone who got in touch. Below, are fifteen superb history blogs to get you started, but first I want to give you some ideas about how to use and benefit from the directory? And, how to get on it if you’re not already.

How to get the most from your history blog directory

The deeper I thought about it the more benefits and opportunities for connections I came up with. Here’s a few for you to consider:

  • It’s a bit of promotion on an external site
  • You get a new backlink to help your site’s Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
  • Stuck for post or design ideas? Then have a look around and learn (don’t copy : ) from fellow history bloggers
  • It’s a list of places to pitch a guest post to
  • You can find new bloggers for your podcast
  • You’ll find new history posts to read, comment on and share on a variety of topics.

So, enjoy your little taster of what’s waiting over at the History Blog Directory and if you’re not already on it here’s what you need to do…

Hi, I'm Claire but you can call me Dory like all my best friends do. Or, the Hisdoryan. I'm a history blogger from Mid Wales on a mission to spread a love of the past. I'm also passionate about building a community of like-minded female history bloggers.

Tudor Blogger

My name is Helene Harrison and I run TudorBlogger. I’m in my late 20s and have an interest in Tudor History, which has been developed through my university experiences. I have finished my Masters degree in History with Commendation, following on from my BA in History with an Upper Second. I also have an MSc in Library Management with Distinction. Aside from the Tudors, my other interests are the Wars of the Roses, the haut ton in the English Regency, and the history of Nazi Germany, particularly the Holocaust, along with a morbid fascination with Jack the Ripper.

An Historian About Town

An Historian About Town covers all things history, culture, and style! My history posts might be book recommendations, documentaries, interesting episodes or even holiday traditions (depending on the time of year). Cultural posts will include ballet and theatre reviews, (other) book recommendations, and travel guides. And of course Style File Friday will be the home of all things style and fashion related!

Memoirs Of A Teapot

Hi I'm Caitlyn. I am a history blogger, a museum guide, and I'm currently doing a postgrad research degree. Here on the blog I write about old objects, historic buildings and museums, history books and history teaching tips. Let's chat history together.

For The Love Of History

My name is Laura and I am fascinated and interested in the past. Ever since secondary school, I have had an interest in history. I think this was down to having such an amazing history teacher who made it fun and fascinating. He taught me that it was not all boring and academic – that we can explore, question and visit the sites where our ancestors have been – that history is not one set story but a mixture of stories and as historians, we have to sift through it all to identify the truth.

Some Sources Say

In this blog I dive into archival records and secondary literature to discover fascinating historical peoples, places and topics. I love too many different eras to commit to a niche, so this blog is a general historical ride, one month we might be in Edwardian England and another in 1950’s America!

This Family Blog

Living our lives one adventure at a time. We like genealogy and culture, history and travel...and we love it best when we are all together. And with coffee... This is our far...

The Anne Boleyn Files

This blog is written and managed by Claire Ridgway, a full-time author, researcher, history lover and champion of the underdog, from England – land of the Tudors, Shakespeare, green fields and yummy fish and chips. I now live in sunny Spain near the historic Alhambra. I wanted to share my journey into the annals of history with other people who have an interest in Anne Boleyn and the Tudor period, and thought that a blog would be the perfect forum.

The British Monarchy

I am a passionate follower of our Royal Family and a self taught historian particularly our British Royal Family history. This website has been a long term goal of mine. I confess to being a self taught historian, I love to read about (over 300 books & counting), write about, watch & listen to anything history related. With a subject as vast as history it's difficult to choose a favourite area of interest.

History Lizzie

I’m a British historian based in Savannah, Georgia. My PhD research, at the University of Hull, looks at women and their interaction with the world around them through collecting and reading in the English country house during the eighteenth century. This blog is a way for me to share interesting stories from my research, as well as other tales of country houses, art, travel and literature. It’s also a way for me to indulge my unhealthy obsessions with Jane Austen, Paris and period drama. I hope you enjoy my journeys into the past – please leave me comments and questions, I’d love to hear what you think!

Beth Neveraz

I am a public historian and archivist, but also a history & museum lover, and a wife, a baker, & a dog mom. I have a Master’s degree in History with a concentration in Public History from the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

A Regency Girl

Hi, I’m Kayla! I’m an obvious Janeite with a love of all things period drama! So of course, I love good cups of tea, interesting books and a long walk around a museum. I’m a writer, traveller, PhD researcher and wannabe historian.

She Noted

I’m the writer and researcher behind She Noted. I studied Art History & English Literature at university and am currently working on my MA in the Country House. People, places and stories are my cup of gingerbread tea – hence my many bookish projects and collections.

Creative Historian

During my four years at university studying ancient history I noticed that there was no where that I could buy Classics-themed goodies for the friends I made on my courses. After my degree finished I made an attempt at self-employment while working part time. It didn't work. In the end I moved to London after getting a full-time job in the archives sector. But even with full-time work, I never forgot that the ancient world seemed to have been forgotten by retailers. Thus I started a shop on Etsy; Creative Classics. After 18 months I started a second shop; Creative History.

Looking Back At History

Welcome to Looking Back At History. My name is Amy-Lee Haynes. I studied at History at the University of the West of England and I'm looking to continue my love for history and research whilst I am traveling the world. Here you will find blog posts featuring unique research, interesting finds and all things historical. Grab yourself a cup of tea and enjoy looking back at history.
