Back in 2006, I got tired of having to update my website every time I wanted to add a tiny piece of news. I’d heard about blogs and thought it would be a good idea to add a blog to my site to make it easier to add news. I decided to add writing tips … Read more
Nine years ago today, I whispered, “Hello, World!” in my first blog post. Like most milestones, in some ways it seems that I’ve been blogging forever, and in other ways it seems that I just wrote those first words. At first, I had few readers and no comments. Then for years, I had many readers … Read more
When I wrote my first post eight years and 1,578 posts ago, I didn’t have many plans for the blog. I had thought I would write about writing, editing, and publishing, and I have. There are 193 posts in the Writing and Publishing Advice category, as well as 274 posts combined in Books and Publishing … Read more
Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday, dear blog! Happy birthday to you! Today is this blog’s birthday. On June 11, 2006, I posted a welcome that echoed in a vast empty space.

1100 posts! My posts vary in length so I don’t know how many words that is … but certainly enough for several books! I hope you enjoy reading my blog half as much as I enjoy writing it!
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 … Read more
Just slightly over four months ago, I wrote: In the past four and a half years, I’ve typed drivel, brilliant insights, thought-provoking words, rants, musings, or you-fill-in-the-blank, then hit ”Publish” 900 times. On my way to 1000! In the midst of this holy weekend, I want to thank all my readers for giving me the … Read more
