TSR is approaching the one-year mark.

As most of you probably already know, I write one long-form actionable historical essay every Thursday the The Strategic Review. I'm closing in on the one-year date of restarting TSR (last December), and there's been a really marvelous reception to TSR.

I wound up writing what turned out to be a long reply, maybe there's some useful points in there for you --

How I do it, the obvious stuff:
