For some reason, I thought I started this blog in June. I went to check on the date and found that I actually posted for the first time on May 22, 2009. This thing is a year old! Another milestone that I let slip by last month was my 200th post.
When I started it, I thought I would try it for a year and see how it went. After assessing the last year, I am pretty happy with the way things went.
It has been an interesting year blog-wise. Starting the blog was incredibly easy, thanks to blogger. Keeping it going has been a lot harder than I imagined, though it has been worth the effort.
The growth in readership has been steady though not meteoric. I'm happy with that, especially since I try to write a little something for everyone and not just focus on the job.
My original intent was to post every three or four days. Now, I try for something every day and manage to reach that about 70% of the time. As much as I enjoy writing, I have to keep it in balance with the rest of my life.
I have enjoyed reading others blogs, many of whom read and comment here. I have seen some long time blogs shut down and go away and I have seen others start up, grow and develop their own following. That is good to see.
I have some regrets about this blog. I regret that I need to be secretive about certain aspects of my job and some of my friends. Important stuff has happened, of which I could only tell you tiny bits and pieces. I hate that, even though it is really beyond my control. Maybe when I retire I will come clean with some of the details in my life, we'll have to see about that.
All in all this has been a great experience and I plan to keep it going. Thanks for your support, I will continue trying to deliver a quality product.
As always, thanks for reading,
