The History List: Thanks for the kinds words and helpful feedback. Glad you enjoyed the presentation and especially glad to hear that The History List is something that will help you in your travels.
- Confusing page at the end: That's the way SlideShare is set up unless one pays a monthly fee. As a self-funded effort, we've been focusing our dollars on developing the platform, and haven't paid for the "Pro" level subscription to SlideShare. This particular presentation has been viewed about 1,000 times; this intro presentation has been viewed about 3,000 times: http://www.slideshare.net/TheHistoryList/introducing-the-history-list
- In the coming few weeks we are going to make some major changes to The History List as we introduce a more consumer-oriented home page that will start with where you are or the destination of interest, and show you locations sorted by date and distance to travel. As it is today, the main event listing page (www.TheHistoryList.com/events) includes the ability to display events based on distance to travel when you enter your location and you can narrow search by date or time period. Advanced Search includes many options to find events or organizations by name, activity or interest, and location. The upcoming changes should make these features stand out more.
- Your idea about blogging about your favorite history vacation suggestions is _exactly_ what we'd like to introduce. They could take three general forms: (1) Favorite events and places, perhaps based on a theme or geographic location; (2) an in-depth look at an event or place; or, (3) a complete trip itinerary, with notes. If you'd like to kick this off, or if you have additional suggestions, would love to hear them. Just send them to Editor@TheHistoryList.com.
- And in terms of helping, thanks very much for asking. In addition to the way I just mentioned, here are others:
= With your permission, I'll add your quote here: http://www.thehistorylist.com/pages/what-people-are-saying-about-the-history-list/. Would you please send me your state? I'll add it so that people better understand the reach and see that these comments are, indeed, from real people.
= We do have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheHistoryList
= And we are on Twitter: @TheHistoryList
= Tell your friends and folks at history-related sites and organizations you visit. It's designed to be affordable--it's free--and easy to use for organizations of all types and sizes. It's copy-and-paste simple, and anyone--staff, interns, volunteers--can add or edit. (In fact, if there's a site or event that's not on The History List, you can add it, if you wish. If the organization decides to participate directly later, than can easily edit what you've written and add more.)
= Finally, one of the most helpful things you can do is exactly what you are doing: Providing feedback and suggestions. We have a long list of improvements and new features planned, so know that, while you may not see a particular feature show up within days of a suggestion, we will take a close look and, more than likely, addd it to our list if it's not already there.
Thanks for taking the time to share your enthusiasm and suggestions, and please follow up via e-mail regarding the quote (permission + state) and additional suggestions or an interest in participating as we begin to provide an opportunity for history lovers to share their recommendations.
