Why blog?

One of the inspirations for starting this blog was seeing that a community of bloggers has emerged all aiming to chart retail history.

We profiled some of these folks in our December issue. It's an interesting read on a fascinating group of people who are combing through old photos, magazines, post cards and anything else they can get their hands on to illustrate the evolution of the mall industry. Their entries are often witty and very personal. You can tell it's a real passion for these folks.

If you'd like to see what they're up to, many of those blogs are linked in the blogroll in the left column on this page. That will change and grow over time, so keep checking for more links.

Also, I'm looking to add more sites to the list. So if you'd like to be added, or you know of an interesting site, leave a comment here or send me an email.
