This is the kind of milestone I usually miss until I’m well past it. But a few days ago I happened to notice we were coming up 3,000 posts here at smays.com. Now, that’s really not a lot of posts over a span of 5 1/2 years. But a fair amount of jotting for a journal that started with the tagline, "I’ve really got to start writing some of this down."
And while most of those 3,000 posts are short links to something someone else wrote and I found blog-worthy, this has been a good place to record those few original thoughts that popped into my head.
And every post is a thin, almost invisible thread, stretching out to become part of The Web. And every once in a while, someone plucks one of those threads and I get a little tingle of…connectedness? Hard to describe, but if you’re a blogger, you know what I’m talking about.
I have no idea what I’ll be doing a year from now… or 10 years from now… but I’m pretty sure I’ll be writing things down here. And I promise not to bring this up again until we get to 10,000.
