Yes, this weekend we’ll hit 50,000 page views here at the Edge.
Whod’a thunk it?
We’ve been here just since the summer of 2013 — some days we get a few hundred hits, other days 500, and once over 1,300 on single day. So you never can tell what will catch someone’s interest.
For a daily blog devoted to academics writing for people both in and outside of the academy, offering pithy scholarly content, but written with an edge in terms of both approach and tone — well, we’re pretty pleased that you’re finding us useful and, we assume, provocative of thought.
So we just wanted to say thanks.
(That etymologists believe “thank” and “think” can be traced to the same Proto-Indo-European root is kind of a nice touch, no?)
