Sex in the Public Square Index – Year 1

Today is the first birthday of this blog. In fact, it is exactly a year ago today that I wrote my first ever blog entry. I’ve got a couple of retrospective-y posts in the works, but to get started, since I love Harper’s Index, I thought this would be a fun way to summarize some of the first year of Sex in the Public Square. If there are other things you’d like to see quantified, leave your suggestions in the comments!

  1. Whoa.

    Happy bloggy birthday!

    Mine’s tomorrow, and I have no idea how you gathered half of that stuff. I’ve been wondering what the heck I was gonna do for my bloggy birthday.

    I’m kinda thinking about a retrospective thing, but it’s not grabbing me like it should. (Kate however, is. Gotta go.)

    Kisses

  2. Thanks Janie, Kate and Mollishka! Wouldn’t have been such a great year without great readers!
