Hi everyone,

So, as is probably obvious, I don’t write on this blog anymore. Since creating it in 2012, it has outlived its usefulness. Although, I never really was able to nail down its purpose. After all, this is a blog whose name comes from one of my favorite poems, but specializes in history and philosophy and a bit of everything.

In short, I’m not going to be publishing anything on this blog anymore. I’m still going to leave all my posts up though, of course. It documents much of what I’ve written since I was 16 years old, starting out on Blogger and then migrating to WordPress. I kept up this blog throughout my undergraduate years, although the activity waned after 2013/14.

What’s Next?

Going forward, I will be writing almost exclusively on my new blog Thinking Historically via Substack. Currently, it has one post up which was published earlier this month. Expect much, much more.

Thinking Historically will focus on historicizing the present, but I also hope to demonstrate that there is a method to thinking about the past. The method requires looking at historical processes and their directionality, critical junctures, patterns of thought and how they came to be, and so on. Altogether, the blog is an exercise in history-writing, intended to both put forth an argument and also demonstrate how to ‘think historically.’

I highly suggest reading my About Page which explains the purpose of the blog and my overarching idea for it. My new project is definitely more serious than this blog ever was, and I hope you’ll come along as a reader and subscribe. Every reader is so important to me.
