Eleven years ago today, while sitting in the scholars residence of the David Library of the American Revolution, I started blogging about matters related to American history, American religion, politics, and academic life. We are still going strong here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home. Not many blogs last this long, so we appreciate all of your support over the years!
Here are some of the year’s highlights:
- The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast continues to attract new listeners and our Patreon campaign continues to fund a lot of the production. If you are not already supporting our work please consider helping us keep this podcast and blog going! There are even free books, mugs, and special episodes for patrons! Click here.
- We had a staff transition this year. We said goodbye to Devon Hearn and hello to Annie Thorn. In January 2019, Annie began her regular column “Out of the Zoo.”
- We started the Commonplace Book. We already have over 100 entries!
- The Author’s Corner continues to get rave reviews. This year we interviewed 64 authors.
- Our most popular post of the year (June 2018-June 2019) was “What Happens When an Evangelical Pundit, Armed Only with 58K Twitter Followers and a Reference to the Bebbington Quadrilateral, Takes on a Historian.” This post edged out “What Franklin Graham Said About the ‘Private Sins’ of Bill Clinton in 1998“.
- Our number of blog readers continues to grow. We picked up a lot of readers during the Believe Me Book Tour, which actually commenced around this time last year.
We will continue to bring you the kind of content you expect from The Way of Improvement Leads Home. Keep reading and spread the word about what we are doing here via social media.
