Blog milestones

During the past week, BeldarBlog passed the 1000-post mark, with something over 11,500 comments and 1062 trackbacks. TypePad's stats, which vary some from Sitemeter's, show slightly over 2 million "lifetime page views" at an average rate of 1245 per day since I started blogging in August 2003 (including some long periods of inactivity). Alas, neither TypePad nor Sitemeter provides a "word per blog post" statistic; I'm sure I'd rate highly on any objective bloviation index.

That anyone at all reads still surprises me. That some whom I've come to know and respect from their comments appear to do so at least semi-regularly gratifies me a lot. Thanks.

Nice. Looking forward to the next 1000.

Reading this caused me to look at my Dashboard to see how many lifetime posts my blog has. Would you believe 7,482? But I'm lucky if 1 in 20 is as well thought out as any of yours.

I started reading you in the post-Katrina period; of the four Texas blogs I was following at the time you are the only one I've kept current with (Smoke on the water seems not to be blogging to much, alas.) That I agree with you politically on most issues is irrelevant -- Norman Geras is a left wing British academic and I check him out three or four times a week too.

So many blogs, so little time.

Fingquo congratulations on reaching this milestone. As one who frequents your page, I am amazed but not suprised by your amazing intellect. Keep up the great work.

Hey, Don! I had no idea you stopped by, but thanks, old friend, and Hook 'Em!

Hey, I look! I just don't touch all that often.

Good work sir. I, too, look forward to more to come.

My thanks to you for all the thought provoking posts, I've enjoyed them tremendously.
