The Best of the Georgian Web

Today I am really pleased to announce a brand new feature here at the Guide. As I gad about the web, I have been fortunate enough to find a host of wonderful long 18th century tweeters, bloggers and writers. Although I try to share as many of these as I can, I thought a more formal effort might be an idea.

Each Saturday from now on, unless I have a guest blogger at the salon, I will be publishing a digest of my favourite posts from around the long 18th century web. I am also working on my blogroll so if you have any recommendations, please do get in touch!

I hope you will discover some wonderful new stories and sites to enjoy; the festivities have kept me away from the web, so the first selection is short but hopefully sweet!
