A Big Thank you

We had an incredible 2012. 2013 looks set to be just as good. In the last six weeks alone, our site has had over 11,500 visits. Last week we made it to 1000 followers on Facebook.

We would like say thank you to our readers by giving one lucky reader among you a chance to win a free year-long subscription to the Journal of Victorian Culture. For a chance to win, we ask that you either DM us on Twitter with your name or on Facebook ‘Like’ the status announcing this prize. The closing date will be Friday 1 March at 5.00pm (GMT) and the lucky winner will be announced on Monday 4 March. The only condition we have is that you should follower us on Twitter or like us on Facebook by Friday 1 March.

Of course, our growing success could not be achieved without our contributors. This leads me to say thank you to everyone who has written for us. Don’t forget that we are always looking for contributions. We’ve had some great posts over the last eighteen months. Please do check out our back catalogue, especially if you’re new to the site. You can search for posts using keywords in the search box or by clicking on the tags that accompany every post.

If you are interested in writing for us then you can find out more here. We’re currently looking for people to get involved in our March Bake off. To sign up please email me. More information can be found here.

Don’t miss this week’s posts on Saint David, Victorian toilets, crime in Liverpool, and Charlotte Younge’s The Heir of Radcliffe Hall– so keep your eyes peeled!

Finally, over the weekend we released a post by Greg Jenner, Horrible Histories consultant, on the proposed changes to the National Curriculum. We would love to have your comments and thoughts on these changes, especially your reflections on the teaching of the Victorians.
