A Christmas Message
This is a special time of year; one of endings and new beginnings. As many of you know, this has been a particularly difficult year for me, but the time has come to close that door and move forward.
During the next few weeks I am going to try and pick up the pieces of my long neglected blog. I'll be answering the many emails that fill my inbox, visiting my favorite blogs and websites for updates, and generally getting back to work. I haven't picked up a book in months and have fallen behind in my study. That ends now - but I need your help. To all my Chicago history friends, I ask that you contact me with updates.
To my surprise, while I have been gone my readership has grown. That faith and interest in my project has inspired me and I thank you all. I will work hard not to disappoint you. I particularly want to express my sincere gratitude to all of you who sent me personal messages of condolence.
But, now it is time to begin anew. I wish each and every one of you a very Happy Holiday and...
MERRY CHRISTMAS from THE CHICAGO HISTORY JOURNAL!
