Yesterday I took advantage of an opportunity to post over at Progressive Historians and today I did the same. They make it possible for practically anyone to cross-post in a diary which appears on a sidebar. The title of the post appears and once the viewer clicks on it it functions just like any other blog post. Every once in a while a diary entry is moved up to the main page. Both of my posts have ended up on the main page and I just accepted an invitation to contribute directly to the blog.
