Revamp of blog

It has been a long time since I last posted on here, and it's time to get this blog into gear. I've got a plan on how to encourage myself to post frequently. I can't tell you what it is because it would then magically disappear in a puff of smoke. I don't make the rules here. I do have a question for you, reader: What do you want to know about? What would you like to read about or learn about when you visit my blog? I write about cemeteries, give presentations on symbolism and history, and I teach proper gravestone rubbing techniques so that stones are not damaged. I'm the editor of and Epitaphs Magazine Online.
