Walking the Berkshires reached its 6th Blogiversary today. While we are not what we once were (and who is), there is still some of the old fire and new fuel for the imagination. Facebook continues to siphon off the short and social stuff and drive traffic back to the occasional pieces that still grace these pages. The local newspaper gets the science and nature writing that was the original inspiration for WTB. Much of what remains is dedicated to my living history passions and research into the American Revolution.
As a good archivist, I am starting to think about the future of this blog, ensuring that the 1342 posts that continue to attract an average of 278 daily page views (545,000 lifetime) with very infrequent posting remain accessible when the time eventually comes, as come it must, to draw the curtain.
We are not through yet, though, and there is more to say and share. To you who have been my friends and readers during all or part of these past six years, I remain eternally grateful.
