Except for a few very brief dalliances, I have now been blogging for an entire THREE MONTHS. As will become a quarterly tradition (until termination, which may well be imminent), at midnight tonight I will tally up the number of angry e-mails I have received over the past three months requesting that I STOP blogging, and compare the results to the number of angry e-mails I have received that have been either positive about or indifferent to what I’m doing (I have decided to loop in the latter classification in order to increase the odds of justifying my existence). Should the former prevail, GOODBYE.
A few things: In the first quarter, I posted 329 times in 93 days, for an average of 3.53 posts per calendar day. (Approximately 34% of those posts were boring.) Despite what seems like kind of an exhausticating number of posts (especially if calculated for business–blogness?–days only), 97%+ of what I write in toto (the vast majority of which is for the day job) is still behind a firewall somewhere. Not sure how much more thinking or writing to let loose on the free world, or what kinds, as I am very much still feeling my way each day as far as content mix and amount needed to make the enterprise worthwhile at any level. (My ultimate goal being, of course, to UNSEAT a certain professional surfing photographer.)
The top post of the quarter: THE TALIBEARD.
We can only hope that (if our existence continues beyond midnight) the talibeard can, in future, be equalled, if not eclipsed.
