I realized the other day that I missed the two-year anniversary of the blog (July 9, 2011). Like I did on the one year anniversary, here’s some stats:
Most popular posts:
1. Enough with the ‘infidel’ stuff. Seriously, stop.
2. Army Myths: The .50 cal will kill/harm/maim even if you miss
3. Why we fight
Top search terms:
2. major league infidel
3. drill sergeant
The post I wanted to be more popular than it was: Veterans on the Set of World War Z.
You can read about the day I started the blog here.
From the Introduction:
The blog is centrally about soldiering, writ large. Sometimes, I’ll write about things only remotely connected to soldiering, but there will be a connection there, somewhere.
I’ve decided that I’m going to drop the ‘Soldiering, writ large’ line. I’ve found it constraining, and a commenter recently pointed out how annoying it is. I typically do write about things in the soldierly orbit, but not always. So, on this, the two-year anniversary of the blog, it’s just ‘Carrying the Gun.’ I’ll write whatever I want.
