For no terribly good reason I just checked the number of earlier entries in this blog. And discovered to my surprise that (a) I started blogging some time in March 2002, making this blog nearly five years old ... and (b) as far as I can tell, this is my 1250th posting.
I'm just pausing to boggle a little. To put it in perspective: the last novel I turned in was roughly 125,000 words in length. My average blog posting is considerably more than 100 words long — probably they average 500 words, as I've taken to writing longer articles less frequently. So the total corpus is probably equal to five books in length, and over the long term I average one posting per day.
Maybe I should put a cork in it?
