2012 in Review

WordPress.com prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog:

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 11,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 18 years to get that many views.

  1. Wendy–
    I visited Ashland many years ago. As a historian I’ve long been interested in Henry Clay, and my students were always fascinated by the fact he got to serve in the U.S. Senate before he’d reached the Constitutional age of 30. Why did you become interested in this particular house?

    1. Thanks for sharing that, John! I was on staff at Ashland 2003-2008 while I was in grad school at the University of Kentucky. My MA thesis dealt with the public and private nature of Clay’s estate – very much in the museum studies realm, but also focusing on the entire history of the site and its architecture. Since moving to Chicago in 2009, I have endeavored to continue sharing my Ashland work and hope to write a book based on it.
