My time has been limited in the last days so I could not prepare the post I had in mind.
What I can say is that this blog is going better than I thought.
Despite the fact that – as I said – “our topics are too heavy for the common reader while too unsophisticated for the happy few” the number of hits has been greater than expected.
We have published 47 posts and received 395 comments (some of which very long) which means some discussion has arisen from the themes presented. The discussion has been international, which greatly pleases us: Indian, American, British, Chinese, Swedish, Italian readers have commented. It is our intention to dedicate a future post to readers’ feedback and ideas.
This is only a brief moment of pause and not a thorough overview of our activity, which might occur after 12 months of blogging have elapsed.
I have to say that it is a bit fatiguing to write in a foreign language but since some people from America and the UK have praised my way of writing, this means my English is decent enough and that I make myself understood.
The main point though being another one.
In a previous post I had said that this blog is ‘a man-in-the-street-of-Rome research on Roman-ness’.
Now I am asking myself: is this research going anywhere?
I do not know yet. I do not really know. I feel I am getting somewhere though I still don’t know where ;-)
See you soon.
