Hello all. I’m writing to announce a new wrinkle for Yesterday Unhinged. The weekend long posts are going to be done in month-long themes. The themes will be based on a certain country, region, era or topic. This will not change the scheduling of posts nor their frequency. I’ve been planning to reblog more and this will give me a topic to focus on. I plan on doing two reblogs per week, one that pertains to the 1014 series and one that pertains to the monthly topic.

March’s topic is going to be the Age of Discovery. There are already a few posts prepared and/or in the works, beginning tomorrow with a post on Lope de Aguirre and his doomed quest for the lost city of gold, El Dorado. If you’ve got any ideas for a great post, you can send it my way. Likewise, if you’ve got some material that you’d like to share or that you’d like me to reblog that fits the monthly theme, get in touch. Or if you’re simply bored and need someone to talk to, the e-mail is yesterday.unhinged@gmail.com and I’d love the input, feedback and help. You can also get in touch if you’d like to do a Fab Five Series post.

Thanks again for all the support.
