Frankly Curious was started November 2009 by Frank Moraes as a place to write about whatever was on his mind — and to a lesser degree what was on the minds of a small group of contributors (Andrea English William Brown, James Fillmore, and Elizabeth Rogers). The content was and is very diverse. However, on 6 July 2012, something happened. The political website Crooks & Liars, picked up one of our articles for its daily blog round up. That greatly increased the site’s profile.
Up to that point, we avoided political articles. It was just too easy. Anyway, who cared what we thought about politics? Well, apparently, some people did. So not only did we start writing more about politics, we started writing more about everything. We were publishing roughly two articles per day at that time. After that, it went up to three, and then four, and so on. In fact, we’ve had to hold back so that we have time for other projects. It eventually reached the point where six articles were published each day. Now we are back down to two per day for financial reasons.
There is really no point to Frankly Curious. It is just a place where we learn about things and share them with others — even if the others are relatively few. (The site currently has about 500 daily readers and about 1,500 daily spammers.) The site is organized into Categories which you can access in the menu on the right. We do plan to try to create more and better ways to organize the content on this site, but it is hard. You are best just visiting every day.
So what is Frankly Curious about? Everything and nothing. For more information, see the very first article, Everything Interesting for Everyone Interesting.
