Happy Birthday to Blog

Well, the grand day has finally arrived. One year has passed since my first-ever blog post.


According to voting readers, the best post ever on this blog is "Best Goldbergish Post Ever?," which just goes to show that elections aren't worth much.

The more exclusive "jury prize"--selected by a panel of secretive experts--for best Goldbergish post goes to "I Apologize" (although it's neither on this blog or written by me), and to "Piano Lessons" (also not on this blog and not by me), which just goes to show how bad secretive experts are at following directions, even if they have good taste.

In other news, this blog has gotten 4,400 visits to date, at an average visit duration of three and a half minutes. Assuming that the average reader's time is worth $10/hr, that means just over $2,500 worth of your collective time has been spent here. That's awfully low tuition for the wonderful education you've been getting in such valuable subjects as. . . um. . . oh, look, it's an eagle!

Word to the wise: never hold a blog birthday costume party.
I'm just sayin'.


  1. Once upon a time, when your dad said, "Hey, look! An eagle!" it meant he was trying to steal your food. I'm trying to figure out how that would work on a blog.

  2. James, if you're going to go whole weeks without posting, the second-least you could do is repost old posts exactly a year after their original posting.

    If you'd been doing that, instead of turning to other blogs for entertainment, your oh-so-(sort-of-)loyal readers would have had 18 "new" posts to read over the past ten days.

    It would be just like summer re-runs on TV.
