What's this all about then?

I must admit I never saw myself writing a blog. I've always seen them as inherently pretentious. I mean, why are my opinions and thoughts important enough to steal time from someone else's life that they can never get back?

I recently had an epiphany though. While talking to one of my friends on MSN I realised that the internet is not just providing the world with transsexual midget porn and videos of people swimming in custard. It can actually be used as a tool to talk to other people who share the same interests as you and there is a chance that you could actually learn something from each other!


I'm kidding. As the blurb to the right of this post yells I'm currently in the second year of my history degree and it is the field I expect to work in for the rest of my life. This blog is primarily for fellow students of history (especially if they happen to be studying early modern history) so we can thrash ideas out and shoot the shit about things normal people really don't care about.

I really am sorry about taking away those seconds. No refunds.


(If anyone has any tips on what the cool kids put on their blogs, let me know!)
