I’ve gotten some emails lately wondering (mostly politely) why we haven’t posted someone’s submitted essay. The answer is pretty simple: we receive a LOT of them. I read them in batches, and process the ones I think are appropriate in the rough order they’ve come in. We intend to publish the ones we like, but you have to have patience. Our blog has been more popular than expected, and we thank you for that, and we thank you for your understanding.
