Thankfully I have not eaten so much that I now weigh 489 pounds.
Nope. This is post #489 on this blog for me.
Per the stats, I've been read in many different countries - UAE, Japan, China, Germany, Canada, and the US just to name a few. Most people read the blog from IE and Firefox next. And similarly most people use Windows vs Mac or other systems. Traffic sources are varied - some blogs I read, some sites I belong to and even some twitter sources. My most viewed post as of now is about Evernote. And lastly I got the most views in January 2011.
My first post was in August 2004 about nothing. But my intent on starting blogging was twofold. Firstly I love to journal and look back at those journals to remember the feelings and the things that I was going through. It lets me see how far I've come and that life will go on, no matter the issues I face at any given time. Secondly, I didn't have a close friend to share all this with. Sounds sad, huh? But really it's just who I was then and somewhat who I still am. I don't let people in very easily or often. The blog was and is and way to let it out to someone and not face the thought of getting hurt by what I say. I realize that when I made this public, I opened myself up to that, but thankfully it hasn't occurred.
So I'm thinking that sometime in July I'll have reached 500 posts. It will have taken me almost 7 years exactly to reach that. Some years I posted A LOT, and others I posted very little. But posting has now become a habit for me in the last couple of years and I post more often than not.
So here's to 490 coming soon...
