The Regency History blog is five years old!

I can’t believe that it is five years since I started this blog! I wrote my first post – What is the Regency? – back in October 2011 and there are now 270 posts on the Regency History blog. My husband, Andrew, has been contributing posts since 2014 and this blog is now very much a joint venture.

According to Google analytics, there have been over 800,000 page views with around 80% of visitors coming to the site through organic search - that is, people have searched for a subject and clicked through to a page on the Regency History blog from the search results.

The all-time top ten posts on the Regency History blog (per Google analytics) are:
