Just a Regular, Old History Buff

Hi there! Welcome to Sharing History! My name is Jenn and I am a marketing executive by day and a history blogger by night. I have a degree in history, but found a career in business quickly after graduating from college so I left the fun world of history behind while I was raising my two children and building my career.

During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, I found myself working from home full time and simultaneously helping my high school-aged son deal with remote learning. He was taking US History at the time and over the course of the pandemic, we also tackled a US Government class. This experience rekindled my love of history and inspired me to start this blog.

  1. Exciting….Just finished The Warmth of Other Sun by Isabel Wilkerson….non fiction….beautifully written narrative about the Great Migration of people from the south to cities in the north and west after Reconstruction. Looking forward to following your history blog.

  2. I suspect I’m more hardcore than the postings on this site. I have a Master’s degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches Tx but ended up working 42 years for the Social Security Administration. I never lost my love for the subject and have a personal library of about 2 thousand books although about 2/3’s are in storage in boxes in the loft of my storage building. I’m no satisfied if I’m not reading one and probably still have at least 50 to be read but will acquire more. At 77 I probably will never catch up but I don’t care.
