Two Nerdy History Girls

I have been very late in giving a proper shout-out to a new blog that I am quite taken with, Two Nerdy History Girls (blame Twitter, it's so easy to just post links on that!). Believe it or not those two gals are not (for once), Lauren and myself. Loretta Chase, authoress of historical romance, and Susan Holloway, authoress of historical novels, teamed up to form a delightful duo just brimming over with fun 18th century facts. The results are the fun, Williamsburg-based blog, Two Nerdy History Girls.

The series that makes me put everything down when I see it come up on my blogroll: Men Behaving Badly of course! As we all know, there were very few men of the 18th century who actually behaved themselves! Go check out their site now!


  1. I've been a huge fan of TNHGs on the WordWenches blog and was thrilled to see their separate site. And they do have the most delicious things. Their Men Behaving Badly series has been awesome. And eye opening. ;o)

  2. Thank you so much for the lovely shout-out! We're surprised, delighted, honored beyond measure to be recognized by Her Grace. We're especially happy to provide all those badly behaving men to keep you company with your morning coffee. Fortunately, as you note, the possibilities are endless....

  3. Thank you for introducing me to their site. My work involves me with Cambridge history, so I was thrilled to read today's wonderful entry about unruly soldiers in Cambridge, Mass., during the Siege of Boston. This isn't the only example of their misbehavior, but a new--and delightful--one to me. Thank you all!

  4. I am heading over there now to get me some of those bad men...

  5. @SHS, You are most welcome!

    @Anon, Perfect timing!

    @Bearded Lady, You can never have enough bad men in your life!
