Yep, it began in July of 2008, when I was newly-graduated from college. That is crazy. Since then, it’s had fat years and fallow years. And it’s only since about January of 2012 that I’ve started updating it every week. Sometimes it seems like a fantastic burden. But I’m glad that I kept up with it. It’s nice to have somewhere to put my thoughts. And the readership has gone up considerably, too! It’s doubled or tripled in every year of its existence, and this July has been is most heavily-trafficked month yet. It was only as recently as last year that this blog rarely got over 100 pageviews in a day. Now it almost always exceeds that on days when there’s a post. Not huge numbers, but, you know, it’s a process.
