On September 23, 2005, I made my first post on this blog, dipping my toe into the blogging pool for the first time. Two years and 539 posts later, I’m still standing. It’s been a real labor of love, and I’ve enjoyed every minute.
Any number of Civil War blogs have come and gone since that time, some memorable, and some definitely not. I’ve published several books in that time, and I’ve seen the culmination of a couple of projects that I’ve been working on for 15 years or more. I’ve seen changes in the book publishing industry, and I’ve seen a sea change in the availability of primary source resources on the Internet. You’ve been along with Susan and me as we’ve faced personal and professional challenges.
Who knows what the next two years will bring? However, I fully expect that I will still be here blogging in two more years. And I hope that all of you who’ve made this whole exercise worthwhile by giving some of your precious time to indulge my rantings will still be here with me.
Thanks, and I hope you will continue to come along for this ride, wherever it might lead us.Scridb filter
