Three years have passed since Crossword Unclued was launched. When I began blogging with this post in 2008 I hadn't imagined what an adventure this was going to be. Solving crosswords, a solitary joy once, has evolved into something shared with the world.
Thanks to all my wonderful readers who keep me going. Thanks for suggesting topics to blog about, sending in interesting clues, reading, commenting and spreading the word about the blog. In this year, the blog's traffic from reddit and stumbleupon has increased substantially with Tackling Cryptic Crosswords: A 7-Step Guide and the New York Times Election Day Crossword bringing in the most visitors.
There are close to 300 articles on the blog now and I've fine-tuned how they are organised for easy navigation. Site Archive lists all articles grouped month-wise on a single page. All interviews of crossword personalities are linked from the new Interviews page.
A recap of posts published in the last year around which the most interesting activities took place.
