It is, I am happy to say, "our" tenth anniversary. That is perhaps a bit premature because, as I recall, my very first post was about student exams (and all the strange anxieties that surround them .. 'is it OK to write in purple ink?' and so forth), which must be pushing it a bit nearer towards the summer -- April as I now check. But all the same we have decided to mark its ten years with a 'TLS voices' podcast. This offers some reflections about the genre in the widest sense.
And it gives you a few stats about the whole enterprise. There have, for example, been nigh on 8 million page views since the blog began, and 38,000 comments. As I was preening a little about this, the editor wisely said that we didn't actually have all that many comparanda by which to judge. But comparanda or not, I am still pleased.
Do listen to the podcast.
