Today marks the eleventh anniversary of this little blog. It all started here when I had no idea what I was doing, what I was in for, or how long I’d be doing it. Frankly I surprised myself when I made it to six months.
Now here we are, some 22,000-plus posts later and sometimes I still feel like I’m just trying to avoid bumping into the furniture. But I’m very glad I’ve kept at it. I’ve met some really great people, learned so much, and found out how much I still have to learn, and what I said a year ago on the tenth anniversary still goes: thank you. I appreciate you more than you know, and as Bilbo Baggins famously said, “I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
