It’s something that I’ve been thinking for a while now:
I should start an mp3 blog.
I posted that back on May 3, physician 2006. Six years, salve four root canals, three template changes, and one site migration later and Armagideon Time is still staggering along. I didn’t think I’d last a month, much less five and a half years of daily updates.
The mp3 thing fell by the wayside after the climate for such things chilled and I realized it had become tangential to the written content. Music continues to play a prominent role on the site, which has evolved into a catch-as-catch-can venue for my thoughts and ever-swirling sequence of momentary obsessions.
There was a time when I meticulously tracked pageviews and traffic trends, but I’ve largely set aside any ambitions to be a “big thing.” I’d rather have a handful of readers than a legion of followers, and I’m quite content with the quality of AT’s regular audience.
So thanks for taking the time to muddle through my daily dose of convoluted syntax and poor proofreading skills. And thanks to all those fellow travelers who’ve provided assistance, encouragement and support over the years. (It feels unfair to single anyone out, but Mike Sterling and Dave Lartigue have been first among equals in that regard.)
I feel like there’s more I could and should say about this milestone, but I’ve got a busy day of orthopedic and physical therapy appointments (for the wife, as she can’t drive with the cast on) ahead of me.
If you swing by the comments section later this evening (Woo-bin time), I should have a little anniversary treat prepared for you.
