That's how many posts that have been published here at PYY, with this one right here. This is the 1000th post in the 636 days in the existence of PYY. And I have to tell all of you, I have enjoyed every minute of it. I also have to say that it has been both a pleasure and an honor, to write for some of the smartest readers that have ever graced the blogosphere.
When I started this blog, my goal was not to be the biggest or have an elaborate layout packed with ads. My goal was not to seek fame (as evidenced by my anonymous pen name), nor did I wish to seek monetary gain (which is evidenced by my not making a dime off of it). I only wanted to write some thought-provoking articles that would stimulate the neurons of a handful of deep-thinking people, capable of rational thought and possessing a reasonable amount of cognitive functioning. (That and providing myself some form of cathartic release, besides yelling at the TV during the news.)
Today, I believe I have met that goal. It isn't a big pretentious production, I average around 1.5 posts per day and the hits have been low compared to many others. But, the quality of the readership has been second to none, that much I am convinced of. Almost every single comment that has ever been posted in response to a post has been thought-provoking in return, regardless of the position held by the commenter.
So, I say thank you, to everyone that comes to this sleepy little blog to read rantings by a (sometimes) raving skeptical and cynical part-time pundit. Thank you for reading and a special thanks to all that have participated over the last 1000 posts, with comments and well-thought out arguments. And, I hope the next 1000 posts will be better than the first. I hope to keep stirring the gray matter in those that have been blessed with the ability to stir their own.
But most of all, I hope all of you keep reading and wish you all nothing but health, wealth, and happiness.
