This post marks the one year anniversary of this crazy blog that I started on January 17, 2007. I have completed more than 200 posts, had 80 comments, and 16 trackbacks. Since my first post, I have had 11,613 visits to my site and visitors have come from every continent on Earth (except Antarctica- are there no web providers down there?). I have been contacted by various memorable people and I'd like to think that I have had some impact. I have yet to break into the Technorati 100,000 but that may change in time. My site usage stats appear respectable and there does seem to be decent penetration but my bounce rate.., er, not that I spend a lot of time checking my stats (that would be silly).
This blog began as just a hobby for me and that isn't like to change for the forseeable future. I enjoy having a forum that I can use to rant about things that matter to me and just to pass on the interesting tidbits that I have learned. If there are those who feel a little bored by the historical posts that I keep cranking out, all that I can say is that there are episodes from history that shouldn't be forgotten. Not without running the risk of having history repeat itself, anyway.
So, happy anniversary to me and I hope there will be many others. Feel free to drop me a comment sometime (especially if you're in Antarctica).
