Marvel at my awesomeness, my friends When I was left off the "The Top 100 Liberal Arts Professor Blogs," I didn't mind. I'm not a professor, so crying because someone didn't include Acephalous on a list of "Professor Blogs" would be beside the point. So when I stopped crying, I wondered whether the category "Professor Blogs" included all professors, or just full professors. Could an assistant or associate be included? What about lecturers and adjuncts? As it turns out, my wrangling was for naught. The list was designed to attract traffic to a disreputable site shilling for online universities. But the commentary it generated has merit inasmuch as it included people praising me. Not-half-bad-herself Sharon wrote: A list that excludes Acephalous is basically worthless. To which far-better-novelist Adam replied: Hear hear! All hail the Glorious Leader! Sharon later lit into the list more exhaustively, prompting Ralph Luker to compose a list of the 82 best history blogs. As you might expect, given the breathtaking gloriousness that is this blog, Acephalous came in first place. You are reading the best history blog on the internet, but if reading losers is your bag, feel free to slum at some of the blogs not written by your Glorious Leader: Acephalous AHA Today Airminded Altercation Ancient World Bloggers Group Archaeoastronomy Axis of Evel Knieval BibliOdyssey Blog Them Out of the Stone Age Blogenspiel bookn3rd The Bowery Boys Britannica Blog Built History Cabinet of Wonders Cardinal Wolsey's Today in History Chapati Mystery The China Beat Civil War Memory Civil Warriors A Corner of 10th Century Europe Curious Expeditions Dan Cohen Digital History Hacks A Don's Life Durham-in-Wonderland Early Modern Notes Early Modern Whale Easily Distracted The Edge of the American West edwired Eunomia Europe Endless Frog in a Well Ghost in the Machine Got Medieval Historiann A Historian's Craft Historiblogography History is Elementary History Unfolding Hugo Schwyzer In the Middle Informed Comment Investigations of a Dog Jottings from the Granite Studio Lawyers, Guns, and Money Legal History Blog The Little Professor Mercurius Politicus more than 95 theses New Kid on the Hallway The Nonist Obscene Desserts Old Is The New New OUP Blog PhDinHistory PhDiva Pink Tentacle Politics & Letters Positive Liberty Progressive Historians The Proletarian Public Historian Religion in American History Rogue Classicism Rustbelt Intellectual Siris Steamboats are ruining everything Strange Maps Talking Points Memo Tenured Radical Trench Fever Tropian U.
