Today in History Newsletter Sign-Up

Thank you for your interest in the “Today in History” newsletter! Despite the site’s name, “Today in History” is updated weekly. Sometimes the articles coincide with current events, and sometimes they don’t, but I hope they’re always entertaining!

Also once a week, I send out a free newsletter to keep you updated on what I’ve been doing. The newsletter gives you links to the most recent articles, profiles of historic figures and their claims to fame, significant dates, and miscellaneous trivia that are just fun to read about. Here’s a preview of what to look forward to:

On This Date
Almost every day in our lives today is a commemoration of something notable in history. In January alone, New Year’s Day falls on the 1st, science-fiction author Isaac Asimov was born on the 2nd, and Alaska became the 49th U.S. state on the 3rd. Discover more about each day of the upcoming week in every newsletter.

What happened to Edgar Allan Poe in the days before he died? Why do we celebrate Valentine’s Day, April Fool’s, or Halloween? Who invented the roller coaster? Almost everyone loves a mystery! Find out just what we know about puzzling events and half-forgotten people in each week’s newsletter.

Topic ideas
Got a suggestion for a topic? Head to the “Today in History” forum and drop me a line! The forum is a community of readers who like to share ideas, answer questions, and engage in thought-provoking conversation. A link to the forum can be found in the newsletter every week. Just sign up to start posting! It’s fast, free and easy, and it gives you the chance to comment on any article or raise a query. Chances are good that someone else there will be able to answer your question!

The “Today in History” newsletter is sent out in text-only format, so it’s readable on any device and platform. Feel free to browse through the archive of past issues at the bottom of the page.

To sign up, simply enter your e-mail address into the box. No other information is required. If you’ve subscribed to another BellaOnline newsletter, that’s excellent – but you’ll still have to sign up here for the “Today in History” one. We don’t share our subscriber lists even with each other! I promise I won’t send you spam. In fact, I won’t even see your e-mail address unless the newsletter bounces and I receive a return notice from your ISP server. Please make sure your anti-spam filters allow mail from BellaOnline.

After you sign up, you’ll receive a message confirming your e-mail address and subscription request. This lets you know that your anti-spam filters have allowed the newsletter through. If you don’t receive any confirmation e-mail, please let me know. Click on my name at the top of any “Today in History” page, and you’ll be taken to a page with a comment box.

So, sign up for the newsletter, and sign up for the forum. The stories we are living now had beginnings we might have forgotten, and it’s important – and sometimes even fun – to recall them. I look forward to writing for you and hearing from you!
