HBG info.

This is a post that I hope will clear up some questions or concerns you may have about the History Bloggers' Guild. History Teacher has recently posted about this too, I advise you read it. These are the benefits: You are part of a chapter with a total of 5 bloggers. That means there are 4 other bloggers in the chapter you are a part of. Those 4 bloggers should be regularly visiting your site, while you do the same to them. You can give each other tips, info, sugestions, and comments. Basically help them improve their blogs. If one of you has found something interesting that could help the blogs in your chapter, then you can quickly tell the other bloggers. If you found something really important, you can tell a Leader. Something that won't happen to you is having the Leaders boss you around. The Leaders should be searching the Internet trying to spread the word of HBG and looking for other important things. You should visit their sites every now and then to receive important news. Now when it comes to links, when you are recruited by a blogger, you should have a blogroll to him/her, you should also blogroll to all 5 Leaders, now the person you recruited will have recruited other bloggers, if there are 4 of those, you and those 4 form a chapter. Those bloggers are most of the time most important to you. Of course you link to them. Now you may start recruiting when you are part of a full chapter, whoever you recruit you should blogroll to. Except for the Leaders, all the people who I have mentioned that you should blogroll to should also blogroll to you.
One last thing, if you quickly join now, you will be a Leader, in other words, every person in the Guild will blogroll to you. I have 3 open positions left. Please join.

The Link to War Historian does not seem to work. It could just be the server at work. I will try again at home.

The 'War Historian' link doesn't work for me, either. I keep getting redirected to Microsoft.com.

Hey Scriptor,

I invited someone who has been posting to my blog the opportunity to be a leader on the condition that he shares his blog address with us and that you grant approval.

The person in question goes by the name Joy. He has left some very interesting comments - though he and I see the world very differently.

Joy expressed interest in the HBG and I said I would love it if he was involved.
