As of July 2011, A Blast From the Past has been picked up by the Smithsonian for its new history blog, Past Imperfect. So I now get paid to write – meaning much more content – and sell rights to my material. The deal is that I can post entries here 90 days after they appear at Past Imperfect; while we're waiting, there'll be summaries, and links to the full article on the Smithsonian's site.
They said it…
"A Blast From The Past is the most interesting, entertaining, and informative blog on the web. Hats off to you, Mike. Carry on."
