On October 27, 2008 I started writing this blog. Now it wasn't my first my first stab at Internet writing, but it was the first one on a more fitting and formal venue. Since that first posting, in addition to 5 years passing, there have been nearly 1500 postings and a shockingly large (at least relative to my expectations) number of page views*. And you know what? It's still fun and I can't see not doing this, even if other demands (such as what has been happening of late) keep me from posting as much as I would like to.
Now at this point I guess I'm supposed to offer some deep thoughts about blogging, angst, the heartbreak of psoriasis and other such weighty things that befit an anniversary. However, since I don't have any deep thoughts of my own to offer, I'll borrow some from Woody Allen.
I'll end this by offering a few thanks...
Thanks to all those who read this mess I semi-regularly scribe.
Thanks to all those who comment (even those who defend the racist rag known as the Stars-n-Bars).
Thanks to all those who have inspired, knowingly and unknowingly, postings.
Thanks to the collective of local bloggers in NEPA who have been so encouraging & welcoming.
Thanks to those who have been so very supportive of this habit of mine, especially Ms Rivers.
(*) I'll save the senseless bragging to others. Suffice to say that while I know the number, I don't necessarily understand why the number is what it is.
