I started doing this blog a little under 3 years ago. At that time, I mostly wanted to see what doing a blog was all about. I was curious if anyone would find anything I wrote interesting, and if so, if there were obvious topics that woud draw more interest than others. I don't know that I had any expectations for doing it a prolonged period of time. I don't know that I thought anyone would necessarily read it. To a large degree I was just writing for myself as a kind of experiment.
Well, here we are 3 years later and I still enjoy writing a bit most days. And it turns out that at least enough people choose to read some of the posts that I've now reached a point where I have more than 250,000 page views. I can't say I ever expected that would be possible. Certainly, there are many other blogs out there with hit rates and readership that are way higher -- 10-fold, 100-fold -- but I'm amazed to a degree that people bothered to look at that many pages. It would seem that at least some of the time there is content that is interesting to a persistent few. So I'm grateful to have that level of company -- and I guess I'll keep writing until I stop.
