Missed Anniversaries

Somehow (and I'm not sure how I managed to do this), I missed the fact that last week was the one year anniversary of this blog!

Since I'm usually pretty obsessive about dates, I can't really explain it, but it is.

Last year on March 15th, this blog went live, since then, I've posted 303 posts.  I'll be honest and say that I didn't think I would be able to pull it off - it's been a challenge, but I'm reasonably proud that I've only missed one (or maybe two) days of posting since I started (given that if I'm not at work, I'm not posting).

It's been a pretty wild year, I've survived a slashdotting (and surprisingly was pleased with the results), and a couple of very near calls.  I hit my 20th anniversary here during that time, and ended up writing a heck of a lot more than I'd ever have imagined.

And I've never been called on the carpet for anything I've said, and I've only had to issue a retraction on something I said once (or rather, a significant correction, not a retraction).

I'm looking forward to the next year :)

And I want to especially thank everyone who reads my blatherings, I appreciate it.

  • I'm one of the countless lurkers in this blog. The occasion warrants raising a voice: Great, really great work, Larry! You MUST keep it on. It's in my TOP-3 list (and I read about 40 MSDN blogs). Always informative, authoritative on technical matters, and somehow engaging on the (few) more personal ones. Plus, it's one of the things that gave me the last few bits of inspiration and courage to become an active Microsoft job applicant. ;-)
  • Well, this year I didn't miss the anniversary of my first blog post.
    I still can't quite believe it's...
