A Part of History: Aspects of the British Experience of the First World War. London and New York: Continuum, 2008. A collection of essays on pretty much what it says on the tin. A slight majority of contributions are on aspects of memory of the war rather than the war itself, including two by bloggers -- Dan Todman of Trench Fever ('Remembrance') and Esther MacCallum-Stewart of the sadly-defunct Break of Day in the Trenches ('A biplane in Gnomeregan: popular culture and the First World War'). I'm grateful to Esther for (1) citing Airminded in an actual book (made out of paper and everything) and (2) thereby getting into print the word 'historioblogosphere', which I invented and carefully crafted to be as off-putting as possible.

    I think that you'll find that a Romanian blogger was using "historioblogsphere" in the 1880s.
    Not that I'm saying that you're stealing the credit for it or anything, but you totally are.
