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.





First Bull Run 50th Anniversary

Seven Years Blogging

4 11 2013

I missed the actual anniversary a couple days ago. So, I’m taking this opportunity to make my first ever post via mobile device (umm, phone.)

As I’ve said before, Bull Runnings has provided and continues to provide me with opportunities the like I never imagined: writing jobs, speaking gigs, and interactions with beaucoup interesting and generous folks.

Readership has levelled off since the heady days of 2011, in part due to my decision to move some types of posts over to social media, but also I think as part of a drop off in more casual interest in the Civil War in general. But that’s OK with me.

I thank all of you for your interest and participation now, then, and in the future. Good stuff still to come!
