What makes a successful blog? YOU do, by following us and joining in our conversation.
This blog, A Place & Time, is being created with you—well, and history—in mind, and we at the North Carolina Museum of History do hope you’ll jump into that conversation with us. We will do our best to introduce you to a wide range of subjects, topics, and stories. In turn, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy information and to give us feedback.
The Museum of History dares to be different! To survive in a world that is only a click away from limitless possibilities in art and culture online, the Museum of History’s blog needs to be engaging, interesting, and original. We’ll definitely keep that in mind!
In addition, we will target those of you who have inquisitive minds, who consider yourselves lifelong learners, and who may not have the time, or ability, to visit a history museum.
Vive la différence!
First and foremost, this blog is for everyone who loves North Carolina history and relishes stories and facts that are presented in a more informal—and brief—format. With that in mind, posts on A Place & Time will consist of
- Shorter pieces. That’s not to say historical facts will be trivialized; instead, they will just be simple and more succinct—after all, “less is more.”
- Images. We truly believe “a picture is worth a thousand words”—and we know that most of you are visual, too—so, we can’t wait to share what we’ve got with you.
- Links. We’ll help lead you to additional resources as we can—other roads to travel, so to speak.
So, join us: comment, ask questions, add your experiences, and suggest ideas. That’s how we’ll measure our success!
