Today is a huge milestone for this blog. Sometime before noon, it will likely go over one million page views for the month for the first time. This shatters the old record, which was around 750,000. I can’t thank you guys enough for taking the time to read what I have to say, interact with me and argue with me. Blogging has opened up a whole new world for me in the last six and a half years, none of which would be possible without readers to keep it going.
What started out as a place to rant and rave a bit, thinking only a few friends would read it, has turned in to a real community, many new friends and a whole new career. It’s the coolest job in the world and I am astonished every day that I actually get paid to spout my opinions. I can’t imagine anything cooler — except maybe being a food or travel writer. Thank you all so much.
