Once I began to write about the 2012-phenomenon I decided that I should cover it a while after the “end date” as well. I believe that the time around the summer solstice 2013 will mark the end of my continuous coverage of this phenomenon (but who knows?). I will most likely cover events that occurred around the 21st of December, such as the way Temple II at Tikal was partly destroyed by people. However, primarily I will cover the aftermath and how people come up with explanations for why the prophecy was not fulfilled (or was fulfilled but has not yet been revealed to the public). Bast has already begun to come up with excuses/alternative explanations.
The traffic to my blog surged on the 20th and 21st of December, particularly from Sweden. It is hard to tell how much the media exposure of me those two days contributed to the increased activity. However, it dropped rapidly in the following week, apart from an old post that got many hits because someone wants to capitalize on the 2012-phenomenon. So far, this tendency mirrors that of Calleman’s failed prophecy in 2011.
I have now also compiled a rough outline of a book based on my blog posts. The book will focus on the blog as a medium in public archaeology. The text is in its current state 139 pages A4-pages long (84,000 words) but it will be drastically reduced when I begin to edit it. I will also include some of the 2000+ comments from people on the blog to illustrate various aspects of the phenomenon.
