Birthday Blog

June 25, 2014

WordPress have notified me that it has been five years since Chris Routledge and I started the Venetian Vase together. At first the stats were low. It wasn’t until I wrote a piece on the wonderful book A Friendship: The Letters of Dan Rowan and John D. MacDonald 1967-1974 that we started to build a readership, and I began to see blogs were a great place to publish original research. Thanks to everyone whose either been regular reader or just dropped by, and here’s to the next five years.

    I’ve been enjoying your blog for the last six months or so – it never fails to interest and entertain. So, thanks and keep on keeping on – and I have to say I’m looking forward to more skinny on the the new James Ellroy…

      Thanks William,

      We’re all looking forward to Perfidia. Let’s hope it’s a great start to a great new quartet.

    Well done! I have been following your blog for almost as long and I still enjoy seeing a new article from the Venetian Vase turn up in my inbox. Keep up the great work.

      Hi David,

      Great to hear from you. It’s been too long! Yes, if memory serves you were our first subscriber. There have been plenty of times I’ve thought about quitting since then but the urge to write keeps dragging me back.

    Wow, five years. You’re doing a great job Steve. Looking forward to what’s planned for next year.
