I've been quite a bit more active here on Baker Street Babble than I've been in a long time. So I decided to look back through some of my oldest posts. I started this blog three years ago, and I think I've managed to cover quite a bit of ground since then. Oh, I've had some fairly lengthy hiatuses over the years, and I've never quite matched the momentum I had in those first few weeks of the blog back in 2014. Still, I've come back to it from time to time, and managed to polish the site (it's really a bit more than a blog) quite a bit.
You can read my first post here. I am impressed by how excited I was at the time to begin sharing my thoughts on my Sherlockian interests on the Internet. I remember thinking at the time that many websites devoted to Sherlock Holmes tend to be pretty shabby looking; some of them look like they were created in the late 90s, and never moved beyond that point. (Which is probably the case for many of them...) When I began Baker Street Babble, I wanted to create a site that was visually appealing, that had good content...a site I would be interested in experiencing myself. I think I've managed to make it look pretty decent.
I hope I can find a bit more regular opportunities to share my thoughts on Sherlock Holmes in the future. The subject really seems to be endless, so I shouldn't ever run out of material. If you've found Baker Street Babble enjoyable, please feel free to email me with your feedback: there's a link in the column to the right, or you can fill out a comment form at the "Agony Column" link at the top of the page. Thanks for reading!
