Nope, your computer is not going to self-destruct. Bobbeh had it right: today is my 5-year anniversary of nonstop blogging–1,827 consecutive days of writing some form or another of babbling stream of consciousness on this virtual slate. Whether that is a remarkable achievement or a sign that I need counseling is up for interpretation, but I just wanted to mark the milestone. (Another one coming in three days: Sachi’s and my 2-year anniversary since we first met!)

One thing I decided was that after the five-year mark, I would not longer hold it as a rule that I have to blog every day. I will still try to, but if I miss a day somewhere along the line I won’t hold it as a big tragedy or anything. I’ll certainly keep up the volume, especially over the next three months until the election, but if I have nothing much to say some days, or if I am really incredibly busy with other stuff, then I won’t force myself.

Anyway, on with the babbling!

    Congrats Luis! You certainly inspired me early on, and my “tenacity”, as one editor put it, proved I had what it took to be a pro blogger. So, while I owe some of my pro work to you… you won’t be getting a check, but a lot of thanks 😛

    Sean: always proud of that–having an effect on others is one of the best compliments you can receive, thanks.

    morgannels: Looks good on the iPhone, thanks to you! And Marc… Thanks! You helped get me going on the theme–it works great!

    Ah, so that’s what those empty countdown blog posts were all about. *stops scratching head*

    Congratulations on the milestone! If more of the world shared your enthusiasm and interest in tracking politics and other current affairs subjects I dare say civilisation might be a lot better off!

    man… has it really been five years? That’s awesome.

    Congratulations and keep up the good work. I’m blogging more or less daily, just not on my personal site; I’ve found a lot of satisfaction (and a lot of readers) on my FAA site.

    And your example inspired me, so thanks! 😉
