You may have noticed that I’ve been much more talkative than usual lately – don’t ask me why and how as I have no idea; it’s just that I suddenly have lots of things to say, and I hope it to continue.
You may also have noticed that the blog has taken an even more analytical turn. I’m thinking in particular of the Carr, Berkeley and Sarah Phelps pieces. Do you approve of this evolution or would you rather me going back to my earlier historical/polemical stuff? (Not that I intend to give up on it completely, don’t worry about that)
ATTVR is nearly twelve-year old and it’s more popular than ever which admittedly is not much of an exploit given how low my initial ratings were to begin with. I have received praise and encouragement from people such as Curtis Evans, Martin Edwards, Marvin Lachman, Mike Nevins to name just a few and I have a faithful core readership so I guess I must be doing something right.
Still, I think I and this blog can still improve, so I’d like you to tell me in all honesty what you like or don’t like about this blog, why you read it, what I should keep on doing and what I’d better leave out. I’m especially interested in the opinions of the « lurkers », people who read but don’t comment. (The lack of feedback is a perennial source of frustration to me)
