On Reaching 400 Posts
Just a quick aside. This is actually post 401. Back on September 23, 2003, I set up MovableType. It's the point at which I really decided to jump onto this whole 'blog' thing. Previously, I just used this site as a resume and to post a few things that I had been working on at the time. Most of it was hand-coded but MT was big at the time so I took the plunge and installed it.
400 posts, over 2200 comments, over 2000 feed subscribers and two and a half years later and I'm still enjoying this. SXSW this year was an affirmation of the joy I get from doing this. The site has also been the catalyst for allowing me to go freelance full-time. I've expanded on my network of friends and colleagues. I've met and conversed with so many nice and talented people, it's hard to imagine giving any of this up.
For those of you who've been reading the site for a day, a month, or a year, to you I say, "Thank you." If you've never left a comment, be sure to stop by and say hello.
