Two years of the blog

I did something today that I have never done before – I linked to the blog on Facebook.

For the last two years, I haven’t advertised the blog much. I’ve linked to it on Twitter here and there, but for the most part I just write and hope a few people read it. If not, I’m totally cool with it – in fact, I like the low profile. I don’t know what I would do if this blog went, like, mainstream.

There was one day back in April where the blog had a record number of visitors. It was the day after the Boston Marathon, and a bunch of people linked to my post. I was honored that people liked it, heck I was just happy to be alive, but it was strange to see outsiders visit the site. I liked the attention, and I thought about advertising the site more often. I decided not to. I thought it would be cooler if people discovered it on their own (no one did). Which was fine – I was content to just keep writing.

Anyway, today is the two year anniversary of the blog. Despite the low readership, this has been a great outlet for me (by the way, the blog is still nameless if you haven’t noticed. Suggestions are welcome). I enjoy creating things, and I like that I have a place to write freely – in two years, I’ve written 156 posts and over 100,000 words here.

If you are one of the three regular readers over the last two years – thanks! You’re great. If this is your first time here, I would love it if you would stay awhile. If you’re reading this, chances are that we share a lot of the same interests. Here are a few posts to get you started (some of my favorites over the last 731 days):
