Amazing…a million hits to the Bees site. Now I know that doesn’t mean a million visitors, but still.
Equally if not more amazing…this is the 2,020th piece of content added to this site since I started the Manila version on July 30, 2002. Combine that with earlier iterations of Weblogg-ed and, well, this has turned out to be quite a hobby.
Last year at this time I was in the throes of horrible site migration problems after our Frontier box here at school crashed and I was trying to scrape the remains off to Weblogger where, I’m happy to say, I’ve had a year of trouble free hosting. Last July, this site was dead for about a month, and it was really, really difficult not to be writing.
All of this is making me want to reflect on all of this blog work in some grander way. I wish there was an easier way in Manila to just scroll through posts without forcing the homepage to load 365 days worth of content. It would be great at times just to do a nice, long bottom up scan to get a better context of where I’ve been and maybe identify places to go. I would love to be able to take two or three days and do nothing but read and reflect and rebuild some of the pages on this site, but getting that big of a chunk of time is probably not in the cards.
