Weekly Ponder: One year and counting

Submitted by Sammy Smith (sammy@thesga.org)

The Weekly Ponder begins its second year of publication this week! The very first Weekly Ponder was posted on 26 January 2009.

We initiated the Weekly Ponder to guarantee a frequent posting of new material on the Society for Georgia Archaeology’s website. We felt that providing new stories was a key to making thesga.org a robust website that would further the Society’s mission and goals, as well as—we very much hoped—help attract members to the Society.

We wanted the Weekly Ponder to be not just words, but to have a picture, too. We thought that would add to its appeal. Indeed, we originally thought the topics addressed in Weekly Ponder stories would have a geographic focus on Georgia. However, we didn’t always have materials, especially photographs, to do that.

At present, the Weekly Ponder addresses issues regarding archaeology from around the globe, and seeks to offer an idea or information worth pondering each week.

All members of the SGA are invited to submit stories for posting to the Weekly Ponder. Please send your contributions to Editor Sammy Smith by clicking here.
