For the first time since I started about six months ago, this blog has had more than a thousand unique visitors in a month! Robots and crawlers excluded, that is. I have no idea if that is about average, but it made my day! Thanks to everyone who read Earmarks, commented on posts, or linked here from their site. I am very curious to know who you all are, so do drop a line in the comments if you haven’t done so before…

  1. Hi,

    I stumbled upon your blog last month…I enjoy the mix of subject matter and all the great images!

    My own area of interest is the late/high middle ages (especially early signs of “modernization” – privatization, capitalism, consumerism, urbanization, etc.).

  2. Hi Will, good to hear from you! I’m definitely going to keep an eye on your blog. There are so many subjects traditionally marked as ‘early modern’ (such as privatization, capitalism and consumerism) that medievalists keep telling me did exist in the middle ages as well. I’m sure I will learn a lot. Thanks for dropping a line!

  3. Kristine,

    My main interest is visual poetry, which is literature melded into visual art (or vice versa). My interest in your site is how what you discuss often deals, even if tangentially, with the visual and the verbal together–as books so often do. So my interests run from emblem poems to graphic novels to typography and always to literature and art.


  4. Dear Academic Coach, or Mary (if I may),

    I am a fan of your blog and your website — a treasure grove of practical advice. I have referred fellow PhD students to your helpful information on “getting it written.” Your site is always inspiring when you are facing a white page, or a chapter to revise. And your piece on Academic AWOL in Inside Higher Ed — it should be compulsory reading for every PhD student. Thank you for putting me on your blogroll!

  5. Dear Geof,

    It’s so great to know who my readers are! I didn’t know your blog, but I am certainly going to add it to my blogroll now. I feel honoured that you, as a visual poet, think I make an interesting combination of the visual and the verbal. I had never thought about it as such, but I have always been interested in matters of typography and illustration — or such things as BibliOdyssey’s posts on printer’s marks or bookplates. Thanks for your comment!
