Greetings, faithful readers.
As you may have noticed, things have been a bit quiet here during the last few months, but much work has been going on behind the scenes. In the coming weeks, we will be adding a number of exciting new blog members—from incoming grad students to junior faculty at a broad range of institutions. In addition, we will be unveiling a new look for the blog’s website. Please bear with us as we edit the site, and get new members’ profiles up and running. Of course, our back catalog of almost 1,000 posts dealing with all aspects of early American, digital, and public history is always available. Unfortunately, these changes do mean that we will be skipping our traditional Junto March Madness; we know some of you will be disappointed, and some of you thrilled, but we hope that our new regular content will more than make up for this omission.
We will be introducing new members and our new site in mid-April. We hope to see you back here then. In the meantime, we would like to remind all of our readers that we are always looking for guest posters to contribute to the blog.

I stumbled upon The Junto 5 years ago when it was born. I am a hugh fan of March Madness, I bought and learned from many of the selections. It was exactly what I was looking for. I am saddened by it’s demise and will find it hard to replace.
The “demise” of JMM is temporary as we expect it to return next year with an excellent new idea for the format.
My favorite part of March Madness was the brilliant April Fool’s prank.
Good luck with that thing you kids are doing!
