After very nearly six years this post is the 500th on the blog. A small achievement and probably also a bit of a daft one. It is only a number. Why didn’t I celebrate the 431st post? Or the 497th? Read the rest of this entry »
By my calculations today is the fifth anniversary of this blog. I certainly didn’t anticipate this place lasting that long, or me blogging for that long, but there you go. I started this place in order to write more, and I think the plan worked. While I am sure that my blogging will remain sporadic and I’ll have lulls and sabbaticals from time to time I doubt I could ever completely stop writing here. It is too much fun. And a big part of that fun is knowing that I am writing to a small, but perfectly formed, audience. So, a huge thank you to everyone who has read something here/commented/subscribed over the years. I really appreciate it.
This is my 200th post on this blog. I thought this was worth marking, in a quiet way, as opposed to marking any calendar-based anniversary for the blog. I’m pleased that I have somehow managed to write that much content over the last little while, and to also have a few people read it. So, a big thank you to my readers here, and particularly to all of you who have left comments. Having a small, yet perfectly-formed, audience has certainly helped motivate me to continue writing. Cheers!
