Today is the fourth anniversary of this blog, and in the past four years no fewer than 988 posts and 9,533 comments have appeared here.
In the same time the number of visitors to Omniglot has doubled from 500,000 a month to over a million, so I must be doing something right.
When I first ventured into the blogosphere back in 2006 I thought it might be difficult to think of things to write about regularly, but so far this hasn’t been the case. I set out to write something here every day, and managed to do so, with only a few breaks, for the first couple of years. Then my posts became slightly less frequent, partly because other things have kept me busy, and also to give you longer to ponder and comment on each post.
