Two Thousand Blog Posts

Wow, when I realized that the 2,000th blog post was getting closer, I thought that when it arrived I would have something profound to say.

Well, it’s here, and I have nothing profound to say.

I view my blog as a way to vent and as a way to record my life’s goings-on. I like it because every so often I go back and read what I’ve written before and it brings back floods of memories. In that sense, for me, I would write the blog even without readers.

But it is you, the reader, exist that makes my blog something more than a personal journal.

Therefore I must thank you for coming and reading what I have to say.

I don’t imagine that it’s always interesting, always correct, or always understandable, yet you read, so I am thankful. Many of you even comment, which is going a step beyond, so to those of you who comment, regularly or irregularly, I especially thank you.

I’m also thankful to those of you who contributed to my “Out of 2000” project. Everybody I asked, contributed—save for one person who’s been pressed for time—and which I understand. While some of the choices I could have predicted, some came completely out of the blue—posts that I’d forgotten about thus bringing a flood of memories back. If I didn’t ask you (and making my list was gut-wrenching), please feel free to comment and tell me what your favorites are.

Meanwhile, I’m hoping to have another 2,000 entries, if not many thousands more.

Thank you.
