A Significant Milestone on The Abraham Lincoln Blog!


I am very happy to let all my readers know that The Abraham Lincoln Blog just received it's 100,000th page view or "hit" a few minutes ago. When I started writing this blog approximately 18 months ago, I had no idea that so many people would show so much interest in it. I never ceased to be amazed at hearing from people around the world via email and comments left on various postings I've written. I have also been blessed to make new friends through the blog and that is by far the most rewarding aspect of my efforts.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge about Abraham Lincoln with my readers, and in turn learning new things about him as well. Two hundred years after his birth, he continues to influence presidents, politicians, and ordinary people around the world. There is still much we can learn from this complex and great man.

Thank you so much for your comments, your emails, and even your criticisms. Without my readers, there wouldn't be a reason to continue this blog!

Hi Geoff,
I just discovered your blog on Lincoln. I'm sort of a late-comer to learning about Lincoln, and have been devouring bios and other related material about his life and mid-19th century America over the past 6 months. I just googled "blog Abraham Lincoln" and found you. So, give me a while to look over your site here, and I hope to learn more and contribute also.

Congratulations, Geoff. You inspire me to write my Lincoln blog, though I've a long way to go to get that many hits.

Keep up the good work.
