About

For those who are fascinated by the women of history…

Thank you VERY much for taking the time to look at this. I am really grateful for it. I really appreciate any comments and treasure them all, so if you have something to say- please do!

A certain friend of mine who knows who she is has helped me SO much. She has always been supportive and I love her so much for it. I just had to mention her because she is totally amazing.

    Why bother, no one is REALLY intersted. The only reason im reading this now is because my friend made me look at it. Are you actually for real?

    • Tanya Singh

      I’m sorry but whoever you are.. that was EXTREMELY rude to comment. If you have nothing nice to say then PLEASE don’t say anything at all. Are you for real? Just because occasionally people like you can’t be bothered to read a simple blog which has had loads of hard work put into it, do you think she will ‘not bother’? If it doesn’t interest you, shut the hell up and get out of this site because a lot of people follow it and enjoy reading it.

      Sorry, but you have to think before you speak and also think about the person who has put her effort into this highly informative and educational blog, and how she must feel with you saying that. It isn’t all about you and how you feel.

      And learn to appreciate hard work. Thank you.

    • I’m sorry but I do not believe that comment is at all necessary.
      I must contradict you in that many people are interested in history, although I appreciate that an equal amount of people find not interest in womens’ roles in history. This blog was made in the purpose of me giving something back to those who I admire in history and expressing my own opinions about them, whilst defending many of them that I feel I have a duty to. I hope that in the creating of this blog that I can educate anyone with who may be interested further or inform and inspire people to take any slight interests further. I understand that you personally may not enjoy history, but I would much appreciate it if you would be so kind as to refrain from making any offensive comments. This is a complete waste of my time and I really do not think that your comment was necessary or even relevant in the slightest.
      Yes, of course I am ‘for real’ as you put it. I have a lifelong passion for history that I wish to share. If you have a problem with that- fine, but please do not waste my time by so rudely complaining on a blog for the purpose of educating about history. If you do not like my work- please leave my blog. I’m sure you have an interest that I personally do not agree with or find at all intersting. But then again, I may be wrong. At least I’m able to admit that.
      Please may I ask who this friend was. If your hearing of my blog has been passed on then somehow it must be able to circulate back to me. Thank you and I would much appreciate it if you refrain from making rude and offensive comments in the future not just on my blog, but when online in general. It is awfully boorish of you.

        Yeah, I totally agree. Th unknown is a rude jerk who isn’t interested in anything x
        You expect to read a piece of blog which is rubbish according to you when It is life man x
        You are such an ignorant person dude, you horrible piece of waste. You are seriously rude and I think that you should apologise to Bethany now or else I will have to find out your name and your details and seriously bug you and to be honest you won’t want that x
        so go on wimp apologise now or else x
        thankyou for your time x

    You wouldnt know who my friend is, because she found this website over google. Oh and Tanya, how old are you, 5? You have to learn that people say what they want, and theres nothing you can do about it. And why do you care anyway? Oh and by the way, you need to stop living in the past, and look at your own life, because it needs sorting.

    • I thank you for your feedback. Also, I’m on Google? Really? Wow that made my day!
      And don’t bring good people into this. Let Tanya say as she pleases. And no, five-year-olds generally do not use that level of good grammar so I take it that Tanya is not five unless she is a child prodigy.
      I don’t mind people speaking their mind, trust me, I certainly do. But please, just don’t be so very rude. One day you’re going to really anger someone.
      Another thing, you don’t know me. You don’t know my life, religion, morals, reasoning. You know nothing about me other than my love of History. Thus, I really do not believe that you have the right to tell me that I need to sort my life, do you? I live in the past because the world’s becoming worse and worse by the second because people are becoming increasingly boorish and arrogant; rather like you actually. I care because there are a hell of a lot of people in the past which could seriously rise above me, you and most of the other people on the planet. I seriously do not care if you’re not intersted- that’s you’re problem and I’m sure you have found a way to waste your time too.
      Now, why don’t you leave my blog now before you waste more time? If you have something else to say just let me know and I’m sure we can settle it on email and outside this blog. Thank you.

    • Tanya Singh

      no shit sherlock -.-

    what the hell is your problem ‘the unknown’? no one give much of a shit about what you think of this blog. if you think tanya’s 5 then you need your head checking. i think you NEED a reality check and you need to sort your life out instead of telling other people too sort out theres. are you too scared to reveal who you are? because you can’t cope with the hate back to you? well your pathetic so i suggest you go to your mommy so she can knock some sense into you. your just a pathetic tramp. the writer of this blog worked hard and if you don’t appreciate it, then you can get lost. you send hate comments because your jealous that you can’t write anything as brilliant as this. further more i think you should get a life, nobody in this world cares what you think so why should we? next time you want to send hate comments, you should think about what your writing, because nobody in this world would really care what you have got to say. i hope you enjoyed reading this you lowlife scum.

    THE UNKNOWN. FIRST OF ALL HOW CAN YOU CALL TANYA A FIVE YEAR OLD WHEN YOU ARE TOO SCARED TO SHOW EVERYONE YOUR NAME. THE UNKNOWN? MY 3 YEAR OLD BROTHER ISNT EVEN THAT CHILDISH. FURTHERMORE THIS IS A PERSONAL BLOG FOR PEOPLE WHO APPRECIATE HISTORY SO IF YOU DO NOT LIKE IT WHY ARE YOU LOOKING/COMMENTING ON IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. PLEASE DO NOT HIDE BEHIND THE EXCUSE ‘THAT YOUR ‘FRIEND’ MADE YOU LOOK AT THIS BLOG’. PLEASE NOTE I INVERTED FRIEND BECAUSE SOMEONE AS CHILIDISH AS YOU DOESN’T DESERVE TO HAVE A FRIEND ( WHO APPRECIATES SOMETHING). THE REASON BEING YOU WILL JUST SURPREES THEIR OPINIONS. ALSO YOU SAY ‘You have to learn that people say what they want’ WELL THAT MEANS THE WRITER OF THIS BLOG CAN SAY WHAT THEY LIKE.’ ANOTHER THING THIS BLOG IS ABOUT HISTORY NOT BEING A BULLY. SO IF I WAS YOU I WOULD START APOLOGIZING TO TANYA WHO WAS JUST SAYING AS SHE PLEASED. I ALSO SUGGEST YOU DO NOT CONTRADICT YOURSELF WHEN WRITING HATE COMMENTS BECAUSE QUITE FRANKLY THEY ARE EMBRASSING AND PROVE TO EVERYONE THAT YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE AND BULLY. FURTHERMORE ‘you need to stop living in the past’ WELL IF IT WASNT FOR THE PAST THEN THERE WOULD BE NO FUTURE OR PRESENT I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE HISTORY AND THAT IS FINE BECAUSE EVERYONE IS ENTITILED TO THEIR OWN OPINION BUT WHY THEN DO YOU TRY TO STOP EVERYONE ELSES FROM EXPRESSING THEIR BELIEFS. PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE REASON THAT OUR WORLD IS BECOMING MORE DICTATED. ALSO BY ALL MEANS READ THIS COMMENT BUT DO NOT COMMENT BACK BECAUSE MY COMMENT IS IN THE PAST AND YOU WILL BE EVEN MORE OF A HYPOCRITE BY COMMENTING ON IT. THE UNKNOWN; I SUGGEST YOU TAKE YOUR HYPOCRITIAL COMMENTS ELSE WHERE ( PREFERABLE A DEBATING BLOG) NOT ON A PERSONAL BLOG. ALSO THINK OF THIS QUOTE WHEN REFLECTING UPON MY COMMENT BECAUSE I THINK IT WILL TEACH YOU A VALUABLE LIFE LESSON,SUMS UP MY COMMENT PERFECTLY AND PROVES WHY YOU SHOULD EMBRACE THE PAST FOR COMING UP WITH QUOTES LIKE THIS WHEN SHAPING THE WORLD WE LIVE IN . ‘Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.’ ~Voltaire

  9. The Unknown (A.k.a. Melissa)

    Look, I am so sorry if I have offended anyone, but i have anger problems and i had lost my meds. I have found them now, and let me apologise to everyone, especially tanya. If you don’t want me, then I will go. But i do aknowledge that I should not have posted these comments and I am sorry.

    • Thank you very much for your apology to Tanya and acknowledgement of your wrongs. It is appreciated. Whether you come on this blog or not is entirely up to you. If you’re going to be rude and insolent then there is really no point. If you are polite and abide by the rules stay if you like. You never know- maybe you may find a new interest though judging by your comments I really do doubt it…

    • Tanya Singh

      well. i am not 5.
      πŸ™‚

      k.
      thanks.
      bye.

  10. Melissa

    yeah i think i might just stay πŸ™‚ my history teacher can’t teach history even if her life depended on it, so yeah i might learn something πŸ™‚

  11. Melissa

    ohh were doing marie antoinette at the moment, ty πŸ™‚

  12. Only just realised how mad the comments on here are…
    I really hate this page anyway!!

  13. hey I saw that there is this website that is taking all of your posts!! Do you want me to show you their website?

    Bethany, your blog is fantastic. The amount of hard work gone into that is unbeliveable.I completely understand your love for History. Melissa, or Unknown, I think you are right to speak your mind, to say what you actually think as long as you aren’t too rude. But you need negative comments to help the site improve so any blog’s writer should be willing to accept critism. I can assure you that Tanya is not 5. Well done Bethany- keep up the good work.

    • tanyaa x

      Thank you for assuring that I am not 5. I’m sure that Bethany would have accepted the comment and handled it with consideration if

    • tanyaa x

      ..if the comment was any kind of constructive criticism- but it really wasn’t. Of course she has the right. Thank you for commenting.

  16. Unknown2

    Also, I have read other peoples’ comments about Melissa and they are really quite rude so can people not be so rude on any comments.

    • tanyaa x

      Well, to be honest, ‘unknown2’, her comments were rude as well. If it was constructive criticism, there’s no doubt we would have handled it with much more consideration. However it is all sorted now and I would kindly suggest we didn’t bring this matter up again.

      Thank you very much.

  17. Hey, just found this, and it’s pretty amazing! Well done! xo

  18. Seagull

    Finally, a website that emphasizes the women in history. I’m so glad I found it. Could have done without the all the “blog arguing” between Unknown and others. If you don’t like a certain site – just leave. Why spread so much negative energy. I happen to love the site. Thank you for all your hard work

  19. hey bb r u ok love posts fantastic whats the view count at mo
