About The Lazy Historian


The Lazy Historian is a  fun, casually-written history blog. I’ll probably be writing about the history that interests me the most: British, French, American, Renaissance, Tudor, Medieval, Georgian and women’s history. But I’m going to try to expand on that a bit in time.

ZhulzTFfWhy “lazy?”
I didn’t major in history in university. In fact, I didn’t even go to university. I went to college and studied Journalism and Graphic Design. My love for history was born when I was in junior high and was first introduced to the story of Henry VIII’s wives. Since then, I’ve read countless books and websites, I’ve watched lots of TV specials and listened to loads of history podcasts. “Lazy” may be a bit harsh, but I wanted to keep this blog light, and poking fun at my lack of a formal education (in history anyway).

Who are you?
I’m Jillianne Hamilton (or just Jill). I’m an author and a graphic designer. I’ve loved English history since I was a kid. While researching my action/adventure/comedy novel Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire (and its sequel Molly Miranda: Thick as Thieves), I fell back in love with history and began expanding my areas of knowledge. I also have a lifestyle blog at Jilly.ca and you can check out my author website at JillianneHamilton.com.

Care to write a guest post?
I’d love to have some guest posts on this blog, just so I’m not harping on about the same time periods all the time. If you have an idea for a blog post, please email me and we can discuss. Guest posts do not pay but you’re welcome to include the post in your writing portfolio and include a blurb at the bottom of the post with a link back to your website.

Want to show off photos from your vacation?
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE seeing pictures of places of historical significance. Even if you’re not much of a writer, it would be awesome to get your photos up on the blog.

Did you find an error?

This ain’t no historical fiction novel or TV costume drama. I care about historical accuracy. I want to know if you found an error in any of my blog posts. You can let me know by emailing me. Thanks in advance.
