I just added a poll to the sidebar asking how much you know about the Wars of the Roses. If you could take a second to answer it, I’d really appreciate it!
I never know how much to explain or what to explain when I write posts. My assumption is that most people reading this blog aren’t familiar with the Wars of the Roses, so I tend to explain the background on that basis. But, I don’t bore you, so please take a second and answer the poll.
I also am thinking about redesigning the site to make it easier for people new to the blog to get started with it. I think the chronological style entries, which in some cases build on information in previous posts, must make it hard for people new to the blog to know where to start.
I’m thinking of moving towards a magazine-style front page. This would not only include latest posts but also let you explore the historical world of Game of Thrones through specific characters, historical figures, historical periods, or themes. Any thoughts or suggestions – either via the Comments below or the Contact form in the menus above (whichever you prefer) – would be greatly appreciated.
