Blog Milestone: One Million Page Hits

Good morning.
"And the beat goes on......................"

Not much to celebrate of late - for anyone really.

But I hit a small milestone last week, recording the blog's one millionth page hit - over the ten year plus life of the posts.  That's in addition to the five million plus times the blog has been in subscriber's mailboxes.  Of course, that doesn't mean that many people read all these blogs or even a goodly amount of them.  And I am sure many people ended up on the site unintentionally and by mistake.

But the fact of the numbers brought a smile to my face, and a certain humility in that I never envisioned that doing something like this would have that kind of ultimate reach.  Quite astounding to me.

Blogging is a bit of an arrogant conceit, thinking you have something important and meaningful enough to say that justifies invading people's time and space, and I have no illusions that in trying to provide relevant, useful information or insights, that I likely miss the mark far more often than I am on target. And that's ok with me.  If now and then I get it right, to even just a few people, that makes it worthwhile for me.

So I am enormously grateful to the readership for continuing to check in from time to time.

I don't know how much longer my health will allow me to keep posting, but I enjoy doing it, and intend to keep at it as long as able.

Thank you all again.

And I hope somehow things start to look a little brighter for everyone.

Don't Quit
