As of today this blog has been going for two years. I started it in order to make sure that I kept in touch with a broad spectrum of issues - didn't get stuck in an intellectual niche. That objective has been more than met. This blog's archive covers a range of issues from Islamism to climate change to the philosophy of social conservatism to foreign policy, particularly with regard to China and Pakistan, to public service delivery to transnationalism to economic and trade policy.
Beyond that, I've taken a huge amount from engaging with other bloggers. A lot of really brilliant people bringing unique perspectives to the world through their blogs. I won't name any names to avoid embarassing late night omissions. You know who you are - thank you.
I'm proud of this blog and I've taken a huge amount from the experience of writing it. Thanks for reading - your comments and eyeballs make blogging so much more rewarding. Here's to another two years.
