Kicking off #DayofDH 2014

How does a Digital Humanist and Twitterstorian kick off her #DayofDH? And most days, really?


Tea and Twitter. This morning, with some assistance from the cat.

In addition to Twitter, I check South Africa’s Mail & GuardianDaily Maverick, and the blog Africa is A Country (which Peter Alegi, another of our #DayofDH participants, blogged about here).

And usually the “This Day in History” feature at South African History Online (SAHO)… when something catches my eye, I’ll tweet about it with related sources available online.

Then, the day starts.
