Skirmish Notes, The First Year in Review

by Mike Kendra on August 9, 2010

On August 9th, 2009 I wrote my first article in SkirmishNotes, and over the last year a awful lot has happened, it sure doesn’t seem like a year!

In honor of this first year anniversary I’ve reviewed my site and would like to feature a few noteworthy posts….

  • A post I really enjoyed writing: I really enjoyed writing “Best Musket Teams in Last 24 Years” because I was able to flip through old Skirmish Lines as I tabulated the information, it was a great project that deserves to be revisited.
  • My most helpful post: I believe “A Case for Life Memberships in the N-SSA”, technically written prior to my first blog post, was by far my most important writing to date, I only wish others would take a closer look at the idea.
  • A post with a title that I am proud of: I honestly need to get more creative with my post titles, the best I can come up with is “Splinter Stories”, a post about my experience shooting the stake event.

Here’s to another great year of Skirmishing!

Thanks for the kind words Mike. Happy aniversary! Your blog has become one of my must checks on the computer in my seemingly ever so limited time. I turn here for the same reasons I turn to skirmishing; for a bit of a break from the hectic pace of modern life to a place where either common folks or folks in common (choose one … hell choose two if it fits) can kick around an opinion, idea, suggestion, observation, etc. and I believe all come out ahead in charactor and knowledge.
BTW … your piece on the Waterloo Village event was one of my favorites and like so many other times, I had comments in mind but life gets in the way before I get a chance to beat the keys. I don’t think few comments equals less interest or less enjoyment of the topic in all cases. I was a frequent visitor at Waterloo and miss it much. This article made me think back to my history with N-SSA and how my path and same crossed over the years but I never became a member until about 7 years ago. There might be a guest blog story there if only my time keeper would slow the pace.
I look forward to meeting you in person at a skirmish one day. Again, congrats on your first year and I look forward to many more.
