23 September 2007 by Published in: Blogging 7 comments

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.

    Rest assured, your blog would be deeply missed if it were to end. I look forward to reading and thinking about the insights you offer us all whenever I can. Congrats on this milestone!

    As fairly recent reader of this blog, I congratulate you on this important anniversary. Anyone who has done it knows that blogging is a time consuming endeavor. And your books are very,very good with kudos to Mr. Petruzzi also. Keep up the great work. I have to imagine that Jeb Stuart, John Buford and even Marcellus Jones are looking down with appreciation for being remembered so well (and so accurately).

    Eric,

    Congratulations on reaching such a milestone. I look forward to much more of the same over the next few years.

    Thanks, guys. In some ways, I’m surprised that I haven’t run out of worthwhile things to say. :-)

    Congrats General. I’m sure you’ll be yapping away (or is it typing away) on Sept. 25th of next year. :)
