Another blogging milestone: 20,000 comments!
Of course, since I reply to every comment, there are really only about 10,000 comments from readers. I say about because when I revamped and moved my blog about three years, threaded comments (including all my responses) were lost. So I don’t actually know many comments I have received, but as of today, 20,000 comments appear on posts here. Thanks to each commenter and each reader. I appreciate you all!
In the same time period, I got more than 350,000 spam comments, so 20,000 doesn’t seem like so many. 🙂
Corrected 9/24/11: Just discovered I was looking at only six months of spam comments. I’ve actually had nearly 835,000 spam comments in the same time period as 20,000 legitimate comments!
