First of all, thank you to everyone that is checking out this blog occasionally and using it to link to other recommended resources. I really appreciate your attention and value your time. That’s one of the reasons that it’s difficult to post a new entry … I don’t want to waste your time with useless information. You can find that on your own.
With that said, I’d like to announce that your faithful participation (or rare perusal) has brought this blog to its one thousandth view. One of the cool things about blogging on WordPress (I haven’t tried any others yet) is that you can track the number of “views” your site is getting. One of the admin tools you have, is called “Blog stats”, and it shows you how many views you’ve had each day, week or month.
Granted, one thousand views is hardly anything, on a medium that can create a viral video which reaches an audience of millions in twenty-four hours. For me, however, it was a lofty milestone I set for myself and the LMC blog. One thousand used to be so much, after all. Before the days of $100,000 college degrees, $500,000 homes, million dollar athletes, billion dollar tunnels … a thousand was a lot.
And a thousand is still a lot (to me). Especially when you’re getting there 15 or 25 or 3 views at a time. A thousand views means writing to only ten or six or one person at a time. So, thank you. A thousand thank yous.
