Rant #1,200: Yes, This Is Correct
Due to a botched numbering system engineered by yours truly, I seem to have entered in 200 extra Rants by mistake, a problem that I discovered two weeks ago, but finally figured out late last week.
Sorry about that.
I changed as many Rants as I could to the proper numbers, but some of them can't be changed, so there will be some, if you are doing a search, that will have the wrong numbers on them.
I don't know how it happened, but suffice it to say that I am upset with myself for not finding out about this until recently.
That being said, today is Rant #1,200.
It is hard to believe, but this blog has been going on for a few years now.
It pretty much is five years to the day that I started this thing up on May 4, 2009.
Many blogs are created with a lot of good intentions, but soon are history, because the creator simply can't keep up with it.
And yes, that has happened to me too, elsewhere.
But Ranting and Raving is a little different.
It is a daily blog, which I do early in the morning before I go to my paying job.
It allows me to expand my writing, enabling me to write about what I want to write about rather than stuff that I have to write about.
And there is a tremendous difference in the two types of writing.
I know that every column is not a sterling piece of journalism, but I think that many of them are pretty good, and some are better than pretty good.
Sure, I wish I got paid for doing this, but heck, you can't have everything.
So for you people out there who read this thing from time to time or every day--and I know you are out there, because I have the analytic data to prove it--all I can say is thanks so much for reading what I have to say.
The publication I get paid to write for has a circulation that stretches around the world as a print publication, and Ranting and Raving is also seen around the world, digitally on the Internet.
So somewhere outside of the U.S., probably at least once a day, someone is reading something that I have written, and that is very gratifying.
Of course, I enjoy the fact that my writing is being looked at inside the U.S. too, but the global reach of the Internet is really incredible, isn't it?
So thanks for visiting, and keep on reading, because I have no intention of giving this up anytime soon.
Here's to the next 1,200 blog entries, and I hope you are here for as many of them as possible... especially if I get the numbering right!
