The Great War (1914-1918) Forum

Remembered Today:

Are you a Great War blogger or thinking of starting one?

Forum pals might be interested to see my latest venture, "Great War in Words" http://www.1914-1918.org

As you will see it is a home for Great War blogs written by others. It is very early days and slightly experimental at the moment, but there are

- three blogs hosted within the site, written by Andrew Thornton, Wayne Osborne and Carole Hope (the last two so new they are blank at time of writing)

- a page bringing together a number of blogs hosted elsewhere.

We hope to expand the number of blogs to make it a really lively and valuable destination for anyone interested in the Great War.

There is an open offer: if already have a blog and would like to include it on the site, or if you are thinking of starting one and would like to take advantage of having it hosted at "Great War in Words", please post a reply to this thread. Hosting is offered completely free of charge. My job is to make sure it is all working from a technical standpoint and to make sure it is all backed-up and secure. Bloggers are not restricted to any style or subject except that it must be in a Great War context.

Chris, I have a number of sites hosted on Wordpress (and one Wordpress site elsewhere) - could you add links to these ?

Thanks

Craig

Chris,

I had wondered about doing a blog as a trench art collector, new finds, trials and tribulations dealing with museums for exhibitions etc, especially over this centenary period - maybe this is just the kick I needed, if people think it would be worthwhile.

Would be more of a 'conversational' blog, rather than the 'reference/information' types that Craig et al are producing...

I recently established fritzlimbach.blogspot.com Fritz Limbach : letters from the front - 1915

On it I'll be/ I am publishing the letters German Musketier Fritz Limbach wrote to his family from just about his first day in the German army (January 1915) upto 3 days before his death.

And I will publish his letters the very day he wrote them, but then 100 years later.

I write a general military history and national security blog at:

http://warandsecurity.com/

Within it, there is a series about the Royal Navy in WWI. My intention is to post articles on, or as close to as other commitments permit, the 100th anniversaries of major events. I also hope to include things such as minesweeping, the blockade, the RND and the RNAS that are hard to fit into the 100th anniversary format.

Thank you, all. I'll have a think about the best way to integrate and present the blogs that are not strictly Great War focused. Do keep watching http://www.1914-1918.org/. It is very early days as yet but Andrew Thornton's blog is already developing into quite something.

At least for Wordpress hosted blogs, the blogger could set up a page linking to all its WWI posts. You could then link to that rather than to the blog's home page.

I think I am one of the very rare members who have a GWF Blog.

Northumbrian Gunner meanderings

I use it more as a portal for matters related to the Royal Artillery, many entries blogging members posts where they maybe of interest. Not sure if this fits the bill.
