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.

    I’m glad you decided to start a blog. BTW, we have the exact same number of posts now, only my two year blogiversary is any day now — or maybe I missed it?
