This week, we’re celebrating a milestone: our 500th post. Yes, five hundred. It makes me giddy just thinking about it—those five hundred posts are equal in length to 2-3 novels from the both of us—but it also makes me darned proud. Five hundred posts of sheer history geekishness—wow!
We like to joke about our sooper sekrit mission to surreptitiously promulgate an interest in all the coolness of history…but really, it isn’t a joke. We do want anyone who stumbles on Nineteenteen to catch a glimpse of how interesting history is and maybe go on to learn more beyond the light-hearted glimpses we offer. If we’re doing that, then we’re happy.
So the question is, as Regina and I contemplate our work here…what would you like to see in future posts? Are there any topics we haven’t covered, or topics you’d like revisited or expanded upon? Anything we aren’t doing now that you’d like us to do in future? More Young Bluestocking group book readings or movie viewings? More guest posts? I have to confess that after 500 posts, it’s getting a little hard to find new and interesting topics for you, so any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated…in fact, anyone who leaves a suggestion in the comment trail this week will be eligible for a drawing for either a copy of The Captain’s Courtship or Courtship and Curses—your choice.
And thanks for reading us for 500 posts.
