As veteran medieval bloggers know, one of my favorite hobbyhorses is that medievalists should be linking to one another in order to raise our Google profile as a whole, so when people are looking for information on medieval topics they are sent to a legitimate site, not a freshman term paper cheat site.
The last few weeks the Wordhoard has caught fire. After flirting with the 500 page views per day benchmark, Unlocked Wordhoard crossed that recently, and is now flirting with 500+ unique visitors. Most of those visitors are first-timers coming here because of articles that are getting e-mailed around and linked to in various newsgroups.
So, new visitors, welcome! If you are interested in medieval stuff, I want to encourage you to visit the many fine medieval sites on the blogroll to the right. Just a few of the more recent postings among our colleagues:
- Cacciaguida has a post about Anselm and the Crucifixion
- Got Medieval has a post on the supposed bones of Joan of Arc
- Haligweorc has a post on monastic New Testament interpretation
- The Medieval Geek's Guide has a comic that combines Chuck E. Cheese with medieval themes.
- News for Medievalists has a possible medieval church in Newfoundland.
- Slouching Towards Extimacy has an interesting article about a medieval revival in Belgium
- Stan Cynedom has birthday wishes for poet (and Beowulf translator) Seamus Heaney.
- Wormtalk and Slugspeak has a post on critiquing Tolkien's prose.
