In my previous post, I indicated how there are seasonal changes to what people are thinking about based on the frequency of visits to certain of our blog entries. In similar fashion, the celebration of historical events can trigger increases in the number of hits (web hits, that is!).
This coming weekend, there is an important War of 1812 Bicentennial Symposium occurring in Guelph, Ontario (location). Whether it is the nearness of that conference or just an increased interest in re-enactment s due to it being the bicentennial year or whether it’s just re-enactment hobbiests getting their gear together and ready and polished for another wonderful summer of re-enactments is anyone’s guess. Whatever the reason, the impact is noticeable on our website, as an increased number of visitors arrive each day to take a look at the many images that we have in our past blogs about the reenactments that we have photographed at Ogdensburg, New York and some of the historic forts that we have visited and commented on such as Fort Niagara in New York State, Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Fort York in Toronto and the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida.
