Eight Years Blogging

3 11 2014

Well, what can I say? It’s been eight years. This blog has lasted roughly twice as long as the Civil War, and like it has taken on a different character as time passed by. I don’t post as much chatty stuff here as I used to. To keep up with that you can always follow Bull Runnings on Facebook. And yes, it’s been a little slow around here lately, but plans are to continue posting primary material as time allows – there’s still plenty of it out there. Book previews will continue as my supply of books to preview continues. I have some tweaks I’m considering to the preview process, like matching up new releases with older titles. More author interviews as the mood strikes me. I have a couple of original content posts that I just haven’t been able to get to, and I do plan to get to them. But I will not post just because I think I should.

Once I crack open Edward Longacre’s new book on First Bull Run, I think I may provide a kind of running commentary. I don’t know if that will be daily, weekly, or what. Let’s just see how it plays out.

Thanks to all of you who have stuck around. Welcome to those of you who may be new. I’m still having a good time and will keep at it until that changes.

Required reading. Like certain beers are required drinking.

Congratulations. And if you ever get tired of this, remember – there’s always Second Bull Runnings, fit, tanned and ready. :)

Thanks all. My style of blogging is not for everybody (if you could see my stats, you’d know that’s true), but I’m glad it’s for you!

Congratulations, Harry! My Civil War blog only lasted a few months, so I admire your discipline!

Thanks, Harry. I’ve been thinking about it. I hope to be retiring from the rat race in the not-so-distant future, and blogging would be an excellent way of celebrating that…

Look forward to your running commentary on Longacre. (Your site is mentioned in the sources).

As someone whose 10th anniv. comes next September, I don’t know if I should offer congratulations or condolences.
