Updates from the Blog / 18.01.2012

Okay, it turns out it's not exactly easy to crank out two or three posts each day. So far, I'm averaging three posts daily and maybe one or two on Saturday and Sunday. Usually one of the posts is a popular one with a fair bit of traffic (typically the morning post) and the other two range between average and total duds (hey, not every idea I come up with is genius). While it may not be easy to generate that much content, it is definitely a lot of fun and personally rewarding. I very much appreciate the gratitude my readers have shared on Facebook, Twitter, comments and via email. So thank you for your encouragement and support. Part of my goal with this blog is to better understand the history of the city that I have called home for over a decade. But what is becoming more important is to document the hidden history of the District and share that with anyone that wants to read it.
If Walls Could Talk, Reader's Choice / 13.01.2012

A curious Ghosts of D.C. reader posted on Facebook that she wanted to know why Syracuse has a house in Woodley Park. I too am curious each time I walk by the Greenberg House at 2301 Calvert St. NW. So I'm going to find out, as well as learn about the house's history. This will be our first official "Reader's Choice" and another "If Walls Could Talk." It better be good. The university has a program in Washington called "Syracuse University in the Capital" and their school website gives some basic information on it. By the way, the Greenberg House is also on Twitter and Facebook, so check those out (after your read the full post of course).
