Sometime today, well, sometimes in the next couple of hours, I will get my 100,000 unique visitor to the blog. I think that's supposed to be one of those significant blogging milestones. And it only took me two and half years to reach it. Actually, in a couple of weeks, I will also post my 1,000 post to the blog. So that's a couple of them in a short period of time.
I know there are more wildly read blogs out there, both nationally, in Nunavut and in Newfoundland. But still, it is kind of cool to think about all the people who have deliberately made the choice to seek me out in the big, wide blogosphere (what a terrible word) and the ever bigger, wider internet to see what I had to say on any given day.
And with such an occasion upon me, I should really give some thought if there are any changes I want to make to the blog. Tomorrow I'll talk about that. Today, I'm going to get back to hacking away at the first four chapters of the novel. I'd like to have them in reasonably decent shape by the end of the day.
