The 4,000th post

Yes, this is my 4,000th post. After some intermittent starts back in late 2005, I made a consistent start, blogging regularly back on December 31, 2005, and continued without missing a day for more than 3 years. When the The Little Man was born, things got spotty for a while, but since November of last year I’ve been back to my usual pace of a post or two a day. It seems like a big number like this deserves something really special, but I’m so busy that I’ll save it for the 10,000th post. In the meantime, I thought for this post, I’d provide some links to the most popular posts I’ve written since I’ve bothered keeping stats–which is when I moved to the WordPress platform in February 2010. Keep in mind that these are based on direct visits to the site and doesn’t include people who might read this through Feedburner and other RSS accumulators.

Top 10 most popular posts since February 2010:

  1. Scrivener 2.0: my month-long test drive
  2. Scrivener: the ultimate writers tool
  3. Vacation in the Golden Age of Science Fiction
  4. My 2010 Hugo and Nebula nominations
  5. (Almost) Everything I learned about science I learned from Isaac Asimov
  6. The paperless writing cycle using Scrivener and Kindle
  7. What I found in the 1942 issues of Astounding Science Fiction
  8. About me
  9. Scrivener and publishing to the Kindle
  10. Why you should read Beyond Apollo

And here are a few posts that are particular favorites of mine:

Here’s hoping for 4,000 more!
