1001: A Blogging Odyssey

“Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining ‘blog’ is a fool’s errand.”–Michael Conniff

“Blogging is pure vanity.”–Unknown

1001 HITSLet’s not get all misty eyed here, but yesterday The Millennium Conjectures™ passed the 1,000 subscriber threshold.  This presents an opportunity to wax poetic on the nature of blogging itself.  Oh, wait, I forgot–you don’t care, and my poetry stinks.  I’ll spare you the agony;  if you are one of my followers it is probably because of the humor, satire or metaphysics.  Thanks for being here.  Thanks for liking my posts and commenting on them.   The onus is now on me to keep delivering–with a little help from my friends, of course. 😉


  1. Congratulations – well deserved!!
    Should I unfollow so that you have exactly 1000 followers? 😉

  2. Too late, Elke. I’m already up to 1,007! 😀

  3. Congrats!!! You are a very engaging writer. I especially enjoyed the ones about your wife’s practice. Hilarious!!! James Herriot is one of my favorite authors.

  4. Congrats! Oddly enogh, I am also rather surprised about what I am thinking while I write – and sometimes shocked a few days later! 😉

    • What surprises me is how often I publish a post thinking it maybe isn’t that good and then get swamped with positive response. I guess we are our own worst critics. Anyway, thanks for being one my most loyal followers and a frequent commenter.

  5. Congratulations! I get excited when I have a 150 views a day!!!

  7. Congratulations. Inspired by your example I am working on cathcing up. Only another 900 subscribers to go. Or so. 😀

    Good work and well deserved.

  8. Well done on such a nice milestone. My blog is 9 days old and has only 40 ;-( such a long way to go to match your numbers

  9. Congrats on passing the 1000 mark, Mark! Love it!

  10. Thanks Mark for your bright corners of the Universe!
