Just in case you’re seeing this in your reader and not on the site, the blog address is http://wearinghistoryblog.com. If for some reason the posts aren’t showing up for you, you can subscribe to the RSS feed from the site- there’s a little orange icon on the right column on the main page (click the top banner if you click in on the post address). Sorry for the mix-up, and hopefully now everything is running smoothly!
