Since 2009 I’ve been noodling away at the “On This Day” essays here at Scriptorium Daily. I started them on a lark during Christmas break 2009, got around to describing my goals for the series sometime in March, and kept at it whenever time permitted.
I wrote entries for about half the days of the calendar during 2009, then filled in a lot of gaps during 2010 as the dates rolled around again. In 2011 Scriptorium Daily added the little “On This Day” sidebar, and I filled in a few more of the gaps as they cycled by. They’ve helped keep the “Daily” in “Scriptorium Daily.”
So I do hereby announce my intention to finish out the series this year, writing the remaining essays for the series. I’ll also keep posting the daily links on Twitter (@FredFredSanders) throughout 2012, and long-time readers are duly warned that most of those will be re-runs.
