The team at Wait Until Next Year celebrate the site's fifth anniversary

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.

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.
