Launched in 2004 on “Blogspot,” Carpetblog, despite its extremely niche appeal, has outlasted most platforms. We clawed our way to becoming one of the most read English language blogs in the southern Caucasus. Then blogs went away. Facebook and Twitter are a useless pestilence. We’re being told email newsletters are The Next Big Thing. Trust that our interests are the same. Only the delivery mechanism has changed.

No one has ever complained “Carpetblog posts too often.” So don’t worry about that.
