I wrote a couple of articles on the founding of the Principality of AEthelmearc and sent them off to whoever was webminister at the time, but they apparently weren't of interest or disappeared into the ether, because I never heard anything further and they certainly weren't posted on the Kingdom website.
Currently the "History" page of the Kingdom website has a list of past rulers, the Pennsic Treaty, and the results of the Kingdom polling - that's it. It'd be nice if it contained a little more than that.
I might still have my articles on my computer somewhere, if anyone's still interested....

Many years ago, Sir Hak put together a newsletter called "Old News", of
just such things; I don't think it lasted any more than 2, perhaps 3,
issues, it being entirely self-published. I still have copies of
issues 1 and 2, and if Hak would allow, I would enter them in online
(they were all done on typewriter, and thus no electronic copies exist
AFAIK) at some point; I 'm sure that Hak has lots more that just never
got published, due to mundane life issues.
