I've lucked into a pretty good life for myself, and none of it would have been possible without this blog and the people who read it. I started blogging because launching my writing career through a more traditional path was proving difficult, but I never imagined that this blog could actually create an entirely different path to follow. Back then, when a dozen readers who weren't related to me was a very good day for traffic, I also never imagined thousands of people coming here each day.
Even now, after nearly five years of doing this on a daily basis, a number like 3,000,000 is truly mind-boggling. The people who read this site motivate me to keep going even when typing up a new entry seems like the last thing in the world that I'd want to do on a given day. I'm not sure how much blogging I have left in me, which is why I won't say something cliche like "here's to another 3,000,000," but I will say that the first 3,000,000 has been a fun ride. Thank you.
Once you're done here, check out my latest "Daily Dose" column over at Rotoworld.
