did ten years ago as I was starting this blog which then bore the name of “Carpathian Musings”.
Blogs are unusual in beginning …. with the author’s latest thoughts – random and unsystematised.
But we are used to books having a clear logic to their structure – which is why, a few years back, I decided to produce an annual version of the posts. The masthead, after all, clearly states that
“old posts are as good as new”
and that readers should not expect the blog to offer “instant opinions on current events”
Four years ago I started the habit of doing a bit of prior editing of the year’s posts for their annual edition; and last year they had more of a thematic structure…..for the first time, they departed (a bit) from their usual chronological order. And this more obviously seems this year a good idea - since there have been so many posts about Brexit…..I will therefore be working on that in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, however, I offer the present version of the 2019 posts as they currently stand – all 220 pages - starting in January.
For new readers, this will show you what you have been missing!
I still have to think of a title….
