Follow Friday - Oh Say Can You See? & Blogger Gems

Being an extreme history buff anything to further my education about the subject is pure gold. During my Internet travels I have found a wonderful blog presented by the National Museum of American History called "O Say Can You See?".

Description from the site:

"The blog takes the readers behind the scenes at the museum, sharing insights and information about our exhibits, events, collections, research projects, and more. Readers are encouraged to use the comment area to dialogue with us about the work of the museum."

Just this week they had a post called "You Asked, We Answer: Taking Care of Your Own Archives". Here they gave advice on how to remove photographs from an old album, best ways to store and scan photographs, and how to convert 35mm to DVD.

Along with being a history buff is the love of books. I have started following the "online news magazine that specializes in news, reviews, commentary on the most popular books and the book industry as a whole" called Daemon's Books. There you will find a book chat section, new releases, giveaway, and reviews. My favorite story today was about an architect from New York's tree house library.

Dameon's Books are also on Twitter and Facebook.

  1. The Museum of American History is my absolute favorite museum to visit in DC. Whenever we get out of town visitors that is the Museum that I recommend as a must see.
