NancyCarol is the History Buff Contributor on Squidoo

Facebook-page-coverToday we’re very pleased to introduce you to NancyCarol.  She’s our History Buff Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
I’m the History Buff Contributor as well as the Women in the Military Contributor. These two niches constantly intermingle, so it’s a nice fit. I love the stories that can be found in history, the little nuggets that give us that, “Wow, I didn’t know that!” feeling when discovered. History is not dull.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
My love affair with historical stories began in my 8th grade, with a great history teacher, who taught us that getting to know history doesn’t have to be dull. Learning about the stories of people, places, things, events can be exciting. He taught us to look for the interesting part of history, and I’ve never forgotten it.

Who had the most influence in your life?
There are many other influences, but my mother was the greatest one. She never had more than a grade school education, but firmly believed in learning. She encouraged my love of books from the time I was three years old. As I grew up, I have memories of sitting in the evening after dinner with her at our kitchen table, both of us reading a book. She would ask me if she came across a word she didn’t understand, and then we’d go to the dictionary. She loved it that I had a love for reading and for words.

NancyCarol invites you to share a review at her lens, Review one of these Historical Movies.

    Such a sweet story about you and your mother reading at the table together each night. Thanks for sharing that memory. I agree, history needn’t be dull, nor learning in general, for that matter.

    One of the joys of Squidoo is getting to know people I might never have had a chance to “meet” otherwise. Nancy Carol is one of those people I enjoy more and more as she shares her love of people, history and her military experiences. She has some killer recipes too!

  • techmalak

    Well done. All the best

  • MSchindel

    Nancy, you do such a wonderful job with your two niches and it’s a pleasure to read Robin’s interview of you. What a blessing to have had a teacher who brought history alive and a mother who nurtured your love of books! Congratulations on this excellent Spotlight feature.
