It’s hard to believe, but I started this blog eight years ago today. I remember coming up with the idea the weekend prior on a visit to Gunston Hall with my wife. Prior to our little family additions, we would frequently go on impromptu outings to explore the area. That happens less frequently, but now we bring along the kids for an educational adventure.
Several million — yes, million with an M — have read the blog over the years. If you told me that the day after I launched the blog, I would have laughed in your face. The only blog readers were my incredibly supportive wife and my dog (aka, Ghost Dog). Our early readers were great supporters and so encouraging.
So, a short, but heartfelt thank you to all the readers and supporters who have made this labor of love possible over eight years. A lot has happened in the District over the last eight years and a lot has changed in my own life, including adding three little Ghost Babies (not so much babies any more) to the crew. The pace has slowed significantly since our family expanded, but hopefully the blog will be going strong in another eight years!
There are still so many great stories and photos to share about the lost and untold history of Washington, D.C.
