I have launched the maps and quizzes pages, above. Regular readers will have seen most of the content of these pages before, but there’s a few links in the maps page that are new. The quizzes seem to generate a lot of steady traffic, so I wanted to get them together where people can find them all in one place. The maps pages is most for my own convenience, I’m fascinated by maps and wanted all my map stuff together. There’s a lot of interesting map links I wanted to have on one page for access, and who knows, there must be other map aficionados out there.

Unfortunately I think I will be moderating all comments in the near future. I’m tired of deleting spam comments that slip through, the spammers are getting ever more sophisticated. And to be honest, some folks have pushed the envelope of the comments policy.

Lastly, I am very seriously considering splitting the blog into two blogs. One blog would be about current events, especially Bush’s wars. The spin-off blog would be exclusively about science and history. I’m not sure I could post to each blog on a daily basis though, that’s the only thing that has stopped me from doing this before.

Again, I thank all my readers for dropping by. Comments and feedback is appreciated.

  3. I’d vote for staying with a single blog. I think you’ll get more traffic that way, because it’s better to post every day.

    And I like having some variation in the subject matter. I’m more likely to comment on political posts, because I’m an ignoramous about science. But I’m happy to read about either subject.

  4. Yeah, I think one blog is it. I’m going to add a history and science tab at the top where I will archive such posts so that people who are interested in them can read through them. —Doug

  5. I think you made the right choice! Trying to maintain two blogs would take an enormous amount of time. And Manas is correct — you are an accomplished essayist. I’m continually impressed!
