Follow Friday; The Size of Connecticut
So why am I writing about a travel blog? Because, if you're anything like me, you probably haven't visited most or all of the places your ancestors lived. I'm stuck relying on travel blogs for a tour. And freelance writer Johnna Kaplan provides a nice tour of Connecticut in her blog The Size of Connecticut. Her profiles provide a nice overview of the town's history and culture from the point of view of an outsider. Some are a little superficial: her post on a mural in Middletown failed to delve into the mural's history, which is interesting in its own right. But I have to admit I now know a lot more about Plantsville!
