In the collaborative archival blog Archivalia (founded in February 2003) have I and some other contributors posted more than 1800 entries in the English language in the so-called English Corner

There is a separate RSS feed at

This year's Archivalia advent calendar features a "Best of" of 10 years Archivalia:

To make browsing easyer I have compiled the following list.

First January 2004 entries:

First 2005 entries

(This means: around 130 entries in 2004 in the "English Corner")

First 2006 entries

First 2007 entries

First 2008 entries

First 2009 entries

First 2010 entries

First 2011 entries

First 2012 entries

The decrease of entries in the English language since 2011 is partly attribuable to the fact that I am blogging English links in the Tumblr blog Archivalia_EN (mosty entries posting images), see below.
