I haven’t been posting on politics lately.  In January, I resolved to revise a book I’ve written about 19th-century Washington, which a publisher has told me can be published.

Still, I hope to keep my site from going dormant entirely.  My original wish in starting this blog was to analyze politics, something I continually long to do.  With any luck, I will be able to manage the occasional post.

In the meantime, accept my thanks for your continuing interest.  If you don’t already subscribe, you may wish to do so using the form at right.  It’s a safe and convenient way to keep up with any new posts.  Plus it keeps up my morale!

Thank you,

Milestones and Thanks

By now, OUR POLITY regularly receives over 1,000 visits a month, a level of readership that suggests it’s firmly established.

My thanks to everyone who is visiting and reading—you’re part of a population that’s global and ever-changing.  I’m deeply grateful for your encouragement, comments, and attention.

Please consider signing up to have OUR POLITY delivered to your inbox using the subscription feature on the sidebar to the right.  Besides the convenience of knowing when new content is published, creating an account enables you to comment on posts.  Only your username (which may be an alias) appears when a comment is published.  No other use of your information is made.

New content typically appears on OUR POLITY every third or fourth day.  Though I occasionally publish more often (as I may this week), I’ve never published more than 15 posts a month.  As with other email subscriptions, you can set your preferences to receive just one weekly digest or be notified of new posts immediately.  Or, feel free to follow me on Twitter; I typically notify followers when I publish something.

If you have any other questions about subscription options, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks again for visiting my website!  (and don’t forget to vote!)
