A year ago today...

My first post still draws traffic because of other people wondering what the hell "status 1" is supposed to mean in their error messages. I feel for those people.

I feel also for the people who come here looking for information on ALS. The most helpful thing I had to say about it was some things to do when someone you love is dying from it.

A year ago today I started this modest blog, and what do I have to show for it?

Yesterday (before this post), I did some quick and dirty analysis on my archives and found:
  • 409 posts
  • 1252 outgoing links (mean three per post)
  • 69935 words (mean 170 per post)
  • 58 comments on 39 posts (95% of my posts get no comments)
As recently as a month ago, I had two regular readers, but I may have picked up more recently by drawing readers from The Ultimate Blogger.

When I started, I wasn't sure I'd go a week. My goal has been to average a post per day, and—see above—I've more than met that goal. Still, I fret from time to time about what I'm going to post from day to day. This in spite of the fact that even now I have over a week of posts written but not published.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to another year, and I hope you are too.
