This is officially post 1500 on the blog. In just under five years, I’ve written 1500 blog posts, some inane “look at me” posts (like this one:-)), some of which I’m pretty proud of. The true count of the posts I’ve written is a bit higher, but I lost more than a few at the beginning of the year when my server crashed and I was forced to move to a hosted server. But still, it’s an impressive count, if I do say so myself. That’s over 300 per year.
We’ll see what things look like when I hit 3000 and 5000 posts. I look back on what started as a way to alleviate some boredom and learn about a new technology and now is something I feel I have to do almost every day. I’ve learned a lot by taking the time to formulate my thoughts clearly. I’ve met a ton of interesting people directly due to this blog, and I’ve made quite a few friends I have never met face to face. It’s been worth every moment of time I’ve put into it and then some. I’d do it all over again, given the chance.
I’m going to keep this short, but I need to say blogging has been good to me. I’m glad other people have been able get value out of my writing, because I know it’s been valuable to me. Looking forward to the next 1500 posts.
