It’s a year since I started this blog with a post about Austin Grossman’s novel. I’ve made 250 posts and gotten 530 comments, and according to WordPress been visited about 35,000 times.
I’m glad I decided to do it. It doesn’t take a lot of time and it helps me remember small thoughts I’d otherwise have forgotten. None of my colleagues have expressed any disapproval — in fact, many have started blogs of their own over the last year.
The best piece of blogging advice I got was from David, who said that if I wanted to keep a semi-regular blog going I had to remember that “bloggable” is a very low bar to clear. As you may have noticed, I’ve held to that religiously.
