If You Like This Page...

... you'll find other things to like in my blogroll.

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:
Of course, I could have listed many others, but this is just a sampling of the most recent medieval offerings found in the blogroll. Spend a little time this weekend wandering through those other sites as well; I'm sure you'll find it rewarding.

  2. Thanks for the link!

    I get what you're about with this. A while back I wrote a somewhat light-hearted post lamenting the conjunction of Beowulf and Wikipedia. Unfortunately, some months later, that post still gets more hits from search engines than any of my others. search string: "beowulf wikipedia"

    I don't think they get what they're looking for when they click my link.

    Now I'm off to add some more links to my blogroll - you've inspired me!
