In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. – Robert Frost

1000th Post

(those reading “Shootings” may go on to Part Nine)

This is post number 1000, or, as my son put it Monday night, 10 hundred.

I began this blog on July 7, 2005. That means that in four years and nine months writing for this space, I have averaged four posts per week. Sometimes I cranked out six or more, sometimes two or less, and for the entire first month there were only seven entries. Were I reader Simon, you would be seeing a chart or graph somewhere near these words.

But Simon has completely let his blog go, so no graphs any time soon on that front. We won’t even touch Moksha’s blog because, apparently, neither will he. Dave soldiers on, seemingly only to rub readers’ noses in his latest cruise plans, but at least he’s out there.

Lately I wrote why I might be slowing down a lot, only to turn right around and ramp it up. It’s almost like it has a life of its own. To be honest, several of those recent posts have been shortwinded (is that a word?) due to the time I’ve spent writing my latest fiction. Once I have that out of my system, more words will flow over here.

But seriously, guys, just kidding about your blogs.

1000th post. W00t!

  1. Congrats on # 1000 Mark…! That’s a big step… and I’m really enjoying your newest story. Off to read that now!

  2. I may just officially let that thing die in the near future. We’ll see. The impetus has obviously left me and it’s a bad thing I’m doing by not pulling the plug and letting it shuffle off its mortal coil.

    Thanks for keeping up a place where we all can still come and catch up, Mark. You’re the “Cheers” of this little blog world.

  3. I still harbor dreams of returning to mine. Granted…all the picture links are currently broken and I haven’t even found the impulse to fix THAT. But as I’ve said before…thank goodness you are keeping the flame burning lest Simon and I have nowhere to share our meager wit.
