Favorite blogs about history?

I just started a blog about the regional (SF Bay Area) history of activism, movements, and politics. Who are my people? What other blogs should I check out? Is there a People's History of the United States of the blog world?

I'll happily accept recommendations for any type of history-related blog if it's well-written or well-liked. Thanks all!

The BIG one is Cliopatra, a group history blog. Lots going on there.

I also like Rhine River - a blog about German (mostly Alsatian, actually) history, literature, and culture by a guy working on his dissertation.

Early modern history stuff:
I like Boston 1775 a lot. The Long Eighteenth is also fantastic. Eighteenth Century Reading Room has some fascinating documents.

And, of course, Samuel Pepys' Diary.

I also have a newish history blog (in profile).

historylink.org is a great encyclopedia of Washington State History. Contains photos, essays, personal accounts etc. Well worth exploring.

I'm a regular at Frog in a Well and the UK has the People's History Museum though that's not really a blog.
