Wow. I am a bad, bad blogger. I got this crazy spike in readers from hosting the History Carnival and then I just let this place lie fallow for about a month and a half. What can I say? I’m a first year professor. It’s a lot of work. Baby on the way. I’m sure that won’t interfere with my blogging time. I’ve got to figure out what I’m doing here, and why, and how to make it a part of my life if it is, and stop stressing about it if it isn’t.

In the meantime, the three or four of you who are still hanging around should, um, go read Cliopatria or my old pal Joey DeVilla or something. And the links in my sidebar to the right. Lots of good stuff there. And listen to Jonathan Coulton. He’s got all these clever catchy songs about robots and curling.

I hope you are all well.


  1. Will keep tuning in…


    ps. Take it from me, it _will_ disrupt your blogging, life, sleep, work – all worth it though!

  2. Oh, yes, the first year t-t is a tough time — don’t worry, when you get the time, your readers will still be around!

  3. Ed, Ancarett: Thanks for the comments – and your patience!

    Anyyone else reading this: Lots of good stuff at both Ed & Ancarett’s blogs, folks (including a couple of topics on my long hypothetical things-I’d-like-to-blog-about list, like Ed’s series on the purpose of school history and Ancarett’s regular postings on teaching and grading. So follow the links in their signatures to read their blogs while I’m flaking.
