Somehow (and I'm not sure how I managed to do this), I missed the fact that last week was the one year anniversary of this blog!
Since I'm usually pretty obsessive about dates, I can't really explain it, but it is.
Last year on March 15th, this blog went live, since then, I've posted 303 posts. I'll be honest and say that I didn't think I would be able to pull it off - it's been a challenge, but I'm reasonably proud that I've only missed one (or maybe two) days of posting since I started (given that if I'm not at work, I'm not posting).
It's been a pretty wild year, I've survived a slashdotting (and surprisingly was pleased with the results), and a couple of very near calls. I hit my 20th anniversary here during that time, and ended up writing a heck of a lot more than I'd ever have imagined.
And I've never been called on the carpet for anything I've said, and I've only had to issue a retraction on something I said once (or rather, a significant correction, not a retraction).
I'm looking forward to the next year 🙂
And I want to especially thank everyone who reads my blatherings, I appreciate it.
