Adding to the helpful post that the folks at WordPress created to let me share with you all how this blog did this last year, I decided to check out how folks are getting to this site and I am a bit humbled. The Civil War Preservation Trust lists this site as one of their featured blogs, describing it as “a must read for those interested in the subject.” Thank you CWPT, as you placed me with some good company, including Eric Wittenberg, Kevin Levin, and the gang at Civil Warriors. In addition, The Washington Post links this site under their blog A House Divided, which covers the 150th anniversary of the war. Written by Linda Wheeler among others, who lists this site as one of her favorites, this group blog covers a variety of subjects so far.
Overall, while I am linked at some great places and other blogs, I was quite surprised to delve deeper into the referrals of this site. I look forward to continuing the work in 2011, and hope that I will perhaps make enough of an impression on Eric Wittenberg that he will add me to his blogroll (hint). Thanks again everyone for making 2010 a great year for the blog.
