Retrospace Has 500 Followers!

Thanks, once again, to everyone who takes time out of their day to drop by Retrospace. There's a lot of important events going on in the world today - many of them horrible. It's nice, I think, to take a break from everything and go back to a different time. It's escapism, but I don't think that's necessarily bad.

Plus, I think you can learn things.  Sure, Retrospace is 99% pop culture oriented, with most of it gravitating towards the fringes.  However, if you want to really learn what it was like in a certain time period, any time period from the Victorian era to Byzantium, a great way to do that is to look at what was popular - the clothes they wore, the music they listened to, the books they read, etc. Too often, history is just a collection of battles and the names of various heads of state.

So, I'll quit tooting my own horn now, and just thank everybody for checking in at Retrospace. 500 doesn't nearly encompass the traffic that arrives here every day, but it is a benchmark that deserves notice. Thanks.

  7. Just for all the bragging, and making me feel bad about how few people visit my blog, I decertified my "follower" status...and therefore push you back down to 499.

    I remain:
    Very bitter.
