23 September 2008 by Published in: Blogging 4 comments

On September 23, 2005, the first post of this blog was made. There’s not much to it, other than a brief introduction. I started this blog to scratch an itch I’d had for a while; I had things to say and hoped someone would pay attention. Little did I know what I had started….

Three years, 806 posts, and 5134 comments later, this blog is still going strong. To my astonishment, not only were people interested in what I had to say, you have flocked to this site. This blog is regularly ranked within the top 200,000 listed on Technorati. Considering that this is very much a niche blog, and there are millions of blogs out there, it’s really humbling to have such a high ranking. Because there is so much traffic, I often exceed my bandwidth limitations and have had to increase them several times over the years. I’m absolutely blown away by the number of people who visit this site each day and who indulge my rantings.

I especially enjoy the interactions with you that take place in the comments; indeed, some of the best discussions I’ve had in recent years have taken place in the comments to this blog. I’m fortunate to have a literate and enthusiastic group of regular readers who enjoy the interactions as much as I do. Those discussions go a long way toward making this blog what it is, and I appreciate that very much.

All I can say is that I am flattered and humbled all at the same time. To all of you who come here every day, thank you. I’m still standing, and I still have plenty left to say. All I can say is that I hope you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you for your time and for your attention.
