New Classics Blogs

In the last few weeks, the number of Classics blogs known to me has doubled. Besides Curculio and David Meadows' Rogue Classicism, we now have Debra Hamel's Blogographos and Josephine No-Last-Name's The Virtual Tophet. The latter's blogroll has an amusing typographical error: it links to "Rouge Classicism". I've never met David Meadows, but I'm fairly sure he's neither a Bolshevik nor a user of cosmetics.

I wonder how many Classics blogs there will be by the end of the year (the calendar year, I mean). My guess: at least a dozen. If there were a contest to pick the precise number, I would pick 14 as the most likely number.

Comments are now back on-line, and the two missing posts have been restored, now purged of inane intrusions. Posting should also be far more frequent in the future, at least after the school year ends in two weeks or so. Watch this space.

Dear readers:

Comments have been disabled, and the last two posts temporarily unpublished, due to a particularly nasty infestation by one or (possibly) more juvenile trolls. I expect the problem to be resolved in the next few days. Now I'm off to the metaphorical store to buy an extra-large bottle of industrial-strength Troll-Be-GoneTM.

In the mean time, the non-blog portion of this site is still open. Why not read some Juvenal or Claudian or M. R. James or take a quiz on Latin animal noises?
