Indeed, this is post #475 in 2008, which is significant because that's the number of posts I made in all of 2003, my most prolific year as a blogger. (Stats are displayed at the top of my archive.) What happened in between? Well... different things, but I think the main thing was that blogging became work instead of play. Somehow this year, it was play again.
And that gives me a chance to say thanks for reading; a big part of the fun of blogging is the feedback I get from you-all. Knowing that thousands of you will read every word I type makes it worthwhile. So thanks. My next post will make 2008 my busiest blogging year. Please stay tuned :)
