Conclusion: bears are just not that into Stoicism.

This blog has been running for about five years now, which is quite some time. It saw the beginning of the Great Popularization of Stoicism, the peak, and what I suspect now is a sort of decline and probably a ground floating point. I’ve seen the signal to noise ratio fluctuate dramatically, and I think we’re actually at a low point of that, currently. I hope to see it get a bit better in the coming years.
This blog’s function has fluctuated in that time, also. Its level of discourse has risen and fallen, as has my activity here. But stats like the ones represented by the map above are pretty humbling.
Thanks for a half-decade of readership.
