I happened to notice that this will be my 3,000th post. I don't know the exact date I started this blog, but I know I put a tracker on it very soon after starting and the tracker started November 15, 2004. That's about 1500 days ago.

After four years and all those posts, there is still no plan. When I figure out what I'm doing here, I'll let you know.

I did make a name change this year, turning the place into mister anchovy's rather than mister anchovy. That came about to acknowledge the fact that I invited some other folks to post here. I had this idea that adding in some more points of view would enhance the place, create some new dialogues, and generally mix things up a little. My little experiment didn't really catch on, and so I finally discontinued it, at least for now. I'd consider it again if the situation were right-for instance if I had a regular commenter who became so engaged in this blog that offering up a posting voice made sense, or if somebody talked me into it (I enjoy single malt scotch). Meanwhile, I'm not changing the name back. Mister Anchovy's sounds like the name of a pub, and I'm all for readers having a brew when they visit here.

Mister Anchovy's doesn't get a lot of comments compared to many of the blogs I visit. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing really. I just assume it means I'm posting just the right amount of accordion videos. I do appreciate your comments though. I also really appreciate those of you who, for some strange reason continue to come back for more.

Congrats on 3000 posts! That's a lot of posts, man. And I always read even if I don't always comment!

I'm not a fan of accordion music, so I must keep coming back for your charming personality! ;)

I've only been blogging 6 months less than you and I only have 378 posts.

mister anchovy said... mean you're not a fan of accordion music YET. Har!!

Barbara, I appreciate your kind words... you know I'm a fan of your blog.

I guess there's always a chance that I'll be a convert. ;)

Congratulations! I thought it was just the accordion music I came back for but it turns out to be so much more.
