In February smays.com will be seven years old. I have not posted every day since that first one in 2002, but I’ve been reasonably consistent. This is post number 4,000. A nice, round number of absolutely zero significance. But we bloggers must make note of such things.
If I had to guess, I’d say fewer than 10 percent of those 4,000 posts were in any way original. The rest were comments on, and links to, other posts, stories and articles.
The tools have gotten better since I began. There was no YouTube or flickr when I started. Social networking was still more of a concept than a web reality. And you pretty much had to be in front of a computer since phones weren’t smart enough or fast enough for surfing and blogging.
Can’t wait to see where we are at post number 5,000… or 10,000.
