The above photo shows results of the efforts of some unknown “artist” who tried to update Mr. Lincoln’s “look” for today’s modern era. I don’t know if he would approve of the look or not, but he was never averse to change.
Since I’ve decided to continue The Abraham Lincoln Blog, I feel as though it needs a new feature to help keep up with rapid changes in technology and social networking. Beginning today, readers will be able to use “share buttons” at the end of every new post (or any previously existing one) to bring attention to anything they find worthy on this blog. The reader may email a post, use Blogger to include it in their own blog, or share it to Twitter, Facebook, and Googlebuzz. It will cut down on the time of copying and pasting a URL to another site.
Another new addition to the blog is a section titled “Upcoming Lincoln Events And Other Fun Stuff,” which is located on the right side of the page below the Abraham Lincoln Blogs and Links section. This new section will include links to upcoming symposia, lectures, and exhibits associated with Lincoln. Other links will be for “fun” things related to Lincoln, such as websites selling Lincoln souvenirs and apparel. I’m not being paid by any site listed in this new section. It’s simply a way to bring attention to things my readers might enjoy.
As always, thanks for taking time to read this blog about Abraham Lincoln.
