500 posts

So, that last post was my 500th--or somewhere thereabouts. I say somewhere thereabouts because I know I've prepped a few posts that have yet to be posted.

Anyway, like birthday presents, it's the thought that counts, right?

Sorry, I couldn't think of anything else to post. The man above isn't me, by the way.
I don't have a beard and I only wear a tie when a gun is pointed at my head.

Honestly, I'm not sure what to make of the fact that I've made 500 posts to this blog. Do I consider it an achievement, or do I consider it a disappointment--because, you know, I've spent so much time typing and editing and posting hundreds and thousands of words that, more than likely, have been read by a small handful of people?

I'm leaning toward the former at the moment, but let me know if you think I should be leaning toward the latter instead.

I think you should be proud. I just passed a thousand posts, and I had to do a lot of those before anyone decided I was worth reading. I go through spurts and slumps...currently I'm slumping, I think...

But I love this blog and I don't think it gets enough attention, as you know.

Anything I can do to help would be done freely.

Thanks, Justin!

BTW, if your blog is slumping right now, I'd hate to think what this blog is doing. You have more than twice the number of followers that I do and a number of your followers actually, you know, comment from time to time :)

That said, I'll take what I can get--especially when you consider that I didn't have a single follower or commenter before last fall (more than half-way into the life of the blog).

I guess I just wish more people would comment. Obviously I enjoy writing, but it's nice to interact with people once in a while, too.

Oh, and re: you helping out in some form or fashion--you're already helping more than you know, by reading and commenting, etc. You certainly don't need to do more than that!

I probably should add that I appreciate all of you who stop by this blog from time to time--even if you never (or just rarely) comment :)

:-) Nice save.
