Another friend just passed the 4 year mark on her blog. Like her, I don’t pay a lot of attention to that sort of thing. But she got me thinking about my blog and where I am in age and posts.
Well, I started this blog on December 2, 2004. Before that I had a website (www.curtisk.com) since about 1999 and had figured out in 2002 how to post to that site from the road, in effect creating a blog before the term was probably even coined. I’m pretty sure that all of those pages have been lost over time.
Back to this blog. Since 2004, I’ve posted to this space 409 times (410 when I publish this). I posted 116 times back in 2005 and peaked again in 2008 at 115 posts. So far this year I’ve been really lazy and have only posted 49 times. Having the ability to make quick posts to Facebook have cut my posting quite a bit, but laziness is a big part, too.
I’ve still got a few weeks left and I can do better. My life in not boring, so I do have stuff to write. And I understand that it’s mostly interesting to me, but if I hit something you find interesting or funny 1 out of 10 times, then it’s probably worth your time. At the very least, I get to come back in a year or two and remember a lot of details that I’ve forgotten.
So I’m going to energize this blog. I’m headed to Vegas next week and again in December. That is always blog-worthy. I’m scheduled to go to Brazil in November. I won’t be touring much in Brazil, but I’m sure I’ll find something to write/post. I’m starting a podcast with a friend, so there should be a stream of post coming from that. All-in-all, I have plenty to share without falling back on politics or passing on others’ posts.
My goal is to get to 100 posts by the end of the year. Since today is day 285 of 2009, I have 80 days left to post 50 times. Heck, I should be able to go around the world in that time. 50 posts sounds easy. We’ll see.
