A couple of events transpired in the past few weeks on this blog that are worth noting. In April "In the Service of Clio" set a record with 10 postings in one month. That broke the record of seven that was set in December 2010 and then matched in January and November of 2011. In June that record got broken again. This posting is the twelfth in the month.
The second thing worth noting, over the previous two years, the number of postings on the blog waned. Each was a new low: 23 in 2013 and 11 in 2014. This year, though, we published the thirty-fourth post on June 18 with Blog CXCII (192): Sarantakes vs. Canary. In short, in this past month we surpassed the total for all of last year. When combined with the other entries made this year, this month took 2015 over the top for the total of the last two combined. That was the original goal when this year started.
We are not even close to being done, though. There is a lot in the pipeline. It will slow down a bit this summer as I work on my next book project, but more is coming on a lot of different topics, and given what is currently planned we should set a new record for postings in a year.
