Seven years ago, I started this blog. Now I’m stopping it. I wanted to go out on a high, and I think last week’s series of posts on cavalry operations is the best thing I’ve ever published anywhere. From now on, I’ll be putting most of my time into my transcription business. In my spare time, I’m tentatively working on a new writing project. It’s about the past and it’s quite feminist, but apart from that it’s nothing like anything I’ve published here or anywhere else. The blog archives will be staying here indefinitely, and comments on recent posts will be open for a few months. And I’ll still be on Twitter.
