Dear friends, readers: It is now two years since I began this blog. 200,000 page views, 455 followers, 150 countries logged-on, and lots of discussion. I have been posting a story each week, for a total of 112 posts and 8,000 comments. Well. I need to change the story now. It is time. I will keep the blog, but I will no longer post each week (life demands more of me). But here is what I propose we do: I am making an open “call for guest posts.” If anyone feels they would like to place an essay on kulturCritic, I will post it. You all know the general direction of the blog, so please keep your proposals in that spirit. I hope to hear from you soon, so we may keep this thing going. I will try to post my own ideas at least once a month. Nobody is excluded… the offer is open to all. Just email your article to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faithfully yours, Sandy
