Early Modern Commons

EMC is an aggregator for blogs covering the period c.1500-1800. It is a resource to help readers to keep up with early modern blogging, and to connect with people who share their interests.

It began as a kind of enhanced blogroll listing early modern blogs in WordPress. In 2012 it was moved into a bespoke MySQL database and began aggregating blogs’ content using SimplePie. It is built in PHP.
