My thanks to my readers on the blog’s fourth birthday
Yesterday, this blog turned four. Its fourth year has, I am afraid, been marked by occasional periods of extended silence, as was trying to finish my dissertation. Still, I have managed to come back every time, and to keep going. I have also got some very flattering accolades from the judges of the Clawbies and from an actual judge of the Federal Court of Appeal. Benjamin Oliphant and I have also produced a couple of papers which originated, in part, in some blog posts of mine, including this one from this past year (and in part in one of his).
As on previous blogging anniversaries, I take this opportunity to thank all of you, my readers, for giving me some of your time, and also for bearing with me when I go quiescent, to borrow again Judge Richard Kopf’s wonderful expression. I wish I could promise that I will be more regular in my postings, but my life might be a bit too chaotic for that for next little while. (I hope there will be good news amid the chaos, but everything in its time.) Please keep coming back, and I will at least try not to disappoint you.
