Lately I’ve been copying my posts from here to a site I maintain on Blogspot (or as I sometimes call it, “Blogs’ Pot.”) I’m doing this simply to back them up in case something goes wrong with WordPress. So far I’ve copied my posts from the launch of the blog in July 2007 through January 2009, and from May 2010 through the present. I haven’t copied all of them, just the ones that I’d miss if they vanished completely.
I’ve made no effort at all to publicize that other site, yet it has drawn a surprising number of pageviews and even a few comments. One comment about the US Civil War was so substantial that I had to break my reply to it into two parts (1, 2). I didn’t expect anyone to read acilius.blogspot.com, and am mystified that anyone has taken an interest in it.
