Somewhere in the midst of discussing the Case of the Communion Cracker I wrote my 1000th essay.
It’s also my birthday.
As a result, I have decided to relax a little, sit back, and enjoy myself.
So . . .
I want to thank all of you for showing up. Some of you have been here a while, and you still show up. I am honored.
Some people might be surprised that, after all of this time and effort writing blog posts, that I still do everything wrong. My posts are way too long. They are boring. They are poorly proofed and edited. It is, in short a surprise that people show up at all.
Nobody comes here so that they can breeze through the atheist news of the day. Or, if they do, they quickly leave again and swear never to return. Coming here takes a certain amount of commitment to whatever the subject of the day is going to be.
I’m sorry about the editing problems. I just run out of time. You see, when I go to edit a post, I usually end up rewriting it. I remove all of the old mistakes (because I simply block off whole sections of text and delete them) but introduce new mistakes in their wake. At the end of the day, when I am finishing up my post, my head is typically bouncing off the desk as I fall asleep at the keyboard. That has something of an adverse effect on quality. I’m sorry about that.
Yet, I’m still up at 4:30 the next morning to start my research for the next post.
Tell you what. If somebody out there will give me $1.7 million, I’ll quit my job and work on these essays full time. That will include editing. C’mon. What do you say? It’s my birthday, after all. Clearly, I deserve $1.7 million.
Oh well. Until the $1.7 million or something similar shows up, I will continue to do what I can.
I’ll be back tomorrow to continue working on the second 1000 posts.
