The spark that lit the flame of my interest in public history is my work as a pseudonymous history blogger at Edwardian Promenade. I began blogging in 2007 as a means of documenting my interest in early 20th century British and American history and its success attracted opportunities ranging from co-hosting social media parties for PBS to research consulting for published authors. My work has also been cited by major newspapers like The New York Times and The Guardian, as well as K-12 teachers and history professors in the US and Canada. I have also branched off from the website to write original historical fiction and freelance articles for independent history magazines. My most recent digital history project is Colored Over There, 1914-1919, which focuses on the African American experience during the First World War.
