I actually kind of missed the moment. I was so busy I didn't even take time to mark the event that was Musings Of A Sci-Fi Fanatic's five year anniversary/ birthday. WOW! It's hard to believe I've been at this since October of 2007.
October was a pretty hectic month and November isn't much better so far, but I thought I would simply mark the milestone of my five-year mission. I remember scoffing at the idea that I might make it five months so five years is something of an accomplishment. If I'm honest with myself I would admit I've always likened myself to something of a strong starter. Finishing strong is much more challenging. It's something I try to hold my feet to the fire on as I've grown older.
The Musings Of A Sci-Fi Fanatic blog has opened many doors along the way. It's incredible really. I've met many bright, articulate and kind people here. You know who you are. The fact that you have taken time out to write from time to time on this journey with me means a great deal. The blog has given me the necessary canvas with which to express myself, find my voice and write and do so at my own pace. I'm grateful for that freedom.
It's rather insignificant in the big scope of things, but I do enjoy this special place in that vast universe of ideas and hope to continue writing. Perhaps we'll be here to mark a ten year anniversary somewhere down the road.
At this point, there are 74 loyal readers. I've published 712 posts in all with roughly 140 posts a year. Time restraints certainly restrict my hopes for a more prolific outlet, but as long as the quality is there I'll make every effort to keep doing it.
My sincere appreciation to those who visit Musings Of A Sci-Fi Fanatic regularly and enjoy stopping here. I do thank you and I am humbled. We shall continue boldly going.
