Happy Anniversary To Me And Edward!

Today marks the seventh anniversary of the Edward II blog!  Yes, I started it on 3 December 2005, wow.  Seven years, 445 posts (at least three or four a month every month since December 2005) and almost half a million page views later, I'm still here and still have lots and lots and lots on the subject of Edward II that I want to say, and am really looking forward to the next seven years of the blog, and the seven after that.  :-)

Thank you so much for reading and for your support over the years!

Happy Anniversary Your Majesty and Kathryn:-) Best Wishes and many happy posts!

Many thanks, Kasia! :)

Kathryn, you are right of course: Sophie- not Linda- Jackson :-) Why have I written Linda? Perhaps I know one Linda Jackson. Sounds like a film star??? Anyway, does the book cover the 12th century?

I've been browsing Google Books and come across Christmas: its Origin and Association by William Francis Dowson. This one looks interesting. It deals with the reigns of almost all the kings :-) Separately! So there's a whole chapter devoted to Henry II (read Henry the Young King:-))

Kathryn Warner said...

Ahhh, brilliant! Thanks for the great tip! ;) Wow, the book really sounds great. I've been flicking through the Sophie ;) Jackson one, and it's very nice and well-produced, but only 120 pages, and very little on the 12th century. :/

Happy Bloggiversary. :-)

You started out a few months after me (May 2005). That really makes us oldies in the fast changing world of blogging.

Kathryn Warner said...

It certainly does, Gabriele! :) Congrats on your seven and a half years!

Hi, Kathryn. The good news is, you have an award. The bad news? Unlike the Nobel, there's apparently no wad of cash that goes with it. Oh, well.
