Chicago History Online: A New Satellite Site
I have a little announcement. You see all those links in the right column? Soon they will be edited to simply a list of topics linking to a new site called Chicago History Online. The reasons for this change are obvious. As the Journal grows and the link sets increase in number, the site will load even more slowly than it does now (I've had emails) and become more cluttered. Something had to be done. Chicago History Online is in its infancy; the link sets need to be sorted by category, and I need to figure a way to have the pages open in a new window on the Journal site. After all, I don't want you running off. But, it's a start. I'm not even sure I like the theme, but I do want to keep it clean and simple.
I would really like your feedback on this change. Is it a good or bad idea? How would you like to see the site organized? Contact me at sharon at chicago history journal dot com ( you know the anti spam drill) with your suggestions or leave a comment.
