Post no. 2,000

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 5 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

It seems a remarkable statistic, but this is the 2,000th published post on this blog.

In fact, the total is somewhat higher than that, as there have been some posts that have disappeared over the years through various times I’ve broken the site and had to restore from a backup, and that sort of thing. There are also some things which I’ve published as pages rather than blog posts, which don’t count towards that total. But, regardless of all of that, as of the publication of this post, there are 2,000 blog posts up on this site, ready to read. My contribution is still outgunned by yours – there are (at the time of writing) 4,893 published comments. And some 1.3 million unpublished spam comments have been caught before publication on here by Akismet.

Later this year, I’ll have been blogging for a decade, which seems a ludicrously long time. I’ll have to celebrate in some way. Maybe I’ll bake a cake.

Anyway, this is just a quick post to share that bit of statporn… and, of course, to thank you for continuing to read the blog!

This 2,000th post was filed under: Headliner.
