On January 26, 2012, Borderlands History Blog went live. We look forward to more and better content in this next year. Thank you for reading and for your support. If you have news, announcements, or might be interested in guest blogging with us, please drop us an email at email@example.com. Though our focus is on North American borderlands history, we’d love to present more from other geographic and methodological perspectives, so if you have some ideas, please drop us a line.
Please follow us on twitter, @BorderlandsHist, Like us on Facebook, and don’t fail to share links to our posts via the Twitter and Facebook buttons below each post.
Here are some highlights from our first year. If you missed commenting on one of these the first time around, please feel free to leave a comment and restart the conversation!
