Thanks to my readers, all 200,000 of you!


Five years ago I launched The Blognosticator on this site after it spent some time at What They Think, and several years on Graphic Arts Monthly magazine’s site. Today my readership passed 200,000.

I have posted 220 blog articles on this site, and have approved 409 comments that have been posted to the Blognosticator.

I have also received over 1,500,000 spam comments (probably more), almost all of which have been trapped by Akismet, a plug-in to WordPress that I subscribe to (thank you, Akismet!).

I have weathered some periods of Writer’s Blog, where I can’t think of anything to write, and I have had periods of tremendous output where I write a blog every day for several days in a row. Such is the nature of this form of journalism.

The most important part of this blog is you. Thank you for reading, and thank you for your comments. Please don’t send spam; I’m a vegetarian.

p.s. The type at the top is Ashala Light, a font I designed for my dear wife, Ashala.
