1810+ Entries in the "English Corner" of Archivalia since 2003

In the collaborative archival blog Archivalia (founded in February 2003) have I and some other contributors posted more than 1800 entries in the English language in the so-called English Corner

http://archiv.twoday.net/topics/English+Corner

There is a separate RSS feed at

?cat=14&feed=rss2

This year’s Archivalia advent calendar features a “Best of” of 10 years Archivalia:

?s=%23bestof

At least one entry should be an English one. Please let me know your favourite entry!

THANK YOU!

The first entry in the English Corner was published on February 10, 2003:

?cat=14&paged=181

To make browsing easyer I have compiled the following list.

First January 2004 entries:

?cat=14&paged=170

First 2005 entries
?cat=14&paged=157

(This means: around 130 entries in 2004 in the “English Corner”)

First 2006 entries
?cat=14&paged=149

First 2007 entries
?cat=14&paged=139

First 2008 entries
?cat=14&paged=115

First 2009 entries
?cat=14&paged=92

First 2010 entries
?cat=14&paged=61

First 2011 entries
?cat=14&paged=33

First 2012 entries
?cat=14&paged=15

First 2013 entries
?cat=14&paged=8

The decrease of entries in the English language since 2011 is partly attribuable to the fact that I am blogging English links in the Tumblr blog Archivalia_EN (mosty entries posting images), see below.
