My little blog cracked 400,000 visits this week. Small potatoes in the world of the blogosphere, but still noteworthy. (I'm up to a "Flappy bird" in the TTLB Ecosystem, which I still think is by far the cutest way to stratify the blogosphere.) I also just passed my third anniversary blogging, 830 posts in all or what Andrew Sullivan would call, "a busy week." I don't put a lot of stock in anniversaries (as evidenced by the fact that I let that one fly past), but it's quite a while in blog-time.
I'd like to extend a real thanks to all the folks who have dropped by to read this blog, both those who enjoy my writing and opinions, as well as those who come by to disagree, and those of you who read via Google Reader or some other RSS service. I really appreciate your time, your feedback and your opinions. As Ezra Klein frequently says, "My commenters are smarter than me." Thanks for taking the time and effort to come here.
