Another Year of Blogging

Jackson and Stuart Celebrating Six Years of Civil War Memory

It’s hard to believe that as of today I have been blogging for six years.  Those six years include 2,400 posts, just under 1 million visits and roughly 25,000 comments.  Thanks once again to all of you who make this site part of your daily routine.  It goes without saying that this past year has seen its share of excitement and unexpected change, but I am looking forward with a great deal of enthusiasm to the coming year and the publication of my first book in June 2012.  I still enjoy blogging, but more importantly, I believe the site continues to serve an important function in the blogosphere and beyond.  What I do here continues to put me in touch with new people and opportunities to share my passion for history and teaching with the broader public.  I love the fact that Civil War Memory continues to make people think, laugh, and yes, even lash out in anger.  It suggests that I am doing something right.  🙂

    Congratulations, Kevin. I would organize a party for you but Edgerton charges $20K (plus expenses) for an appearance. Sorry.

      You don’t think he would offer a discount in my case? Thanks, Andy.

    Maybe Dixie Outfitters will issue a commemorative plate. 😉

    Seriously, congratulations Kevin.

      Thanks, Rob. What a great idea. I should have turned this into a contest and asked readers to create what Dixie Outfitters might give me to mark the occasion. 🙂
