Four Years Old

So I just realized that I started writing this blog four years ago last Thursday. It snuck up on me or else I would have done something interesting for the anniversary. Maybe for the five year one....

Some fun facts:

I realized that I've been working on the same movie for the whole four years that I've been blogging.

I've written 262 posts in four years. That sounded low to me at first, but it actually works out to an average of five and a half posts a month, which is more than I would have thought.

Okay, those facts weren't very fun.

Whenever I accidentally stumble over one of my old posts I always cringe because, in retrospect, my writing always seems confusing, poorly written and even downright wrong. Everyone who reads the blog is so forgiving and supportive, so thanks for all of the great comments over the years. And meeting people who know me through the blog never gets old. So thanks to everyone for going on this journey with me and hanging in there.

Congratulations on the four years.

How do you keep your enthusiasm up at work when you've been working on a single film all that time?

love to see this discussion! It’s great to see you all working through the issues and also, it’s great to see recommendations for testing. In the end, it’s what your actual users do and prefer that should be your biggest driver in making these decisions.

Thanks for all the time you've put into this blog. I've learned a ton and I'm sure many others can say the same thing.

I love the fact that you write one of the most useful blogs on the internet and you still apologise to us for it. Your blog has been invaluable to me, and I'm guessing lots of others too.

Thanks very much for the time you put into TOTSGC Mark; you're a star.

All the best,

Your old posts are every bit as useful as the new ones and I still say that you should compile this blog into a book - I'd buy it and so would many others. Keep up the awesome work. :)

Mark - thanks for the comment - it's funny, after you invest a certain amount of time in the thing, it becomes even more important to you that it turn out well, I've found.

brett - thank you mr. robot.

Clean3d- thanks for letting me know!

platypuss - great, thanks!

Eugen - I will try my best!

Greg - great! Thank you!

David - aww thanks!!! I'm humbled.

E. Will - thanks you! I wish I could, but I could probably never get the rights to all this artwork. Plus I like giving it away. I think it's good karma.

a BIG THANKS, Mark! I've been a follower for loooong time too.

Hmmm...I wonder if you'll still be around in like 10 yrs? That would be awesome!

"So thanks to everyone for ... hanging in there."

*massive sigh* well, it hasn't been easy I have to say... :P
Just kidding!
I'm always pleased to see a new post on this blog. Particularly when you're underlining something basic. They've always been the most important posts IMO.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take scarlet blade gold, but by the moments that take our breath away scarlet blade gold. I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty scarlet blade gold.
Life is like a hot bath. It feels good while you're in it, but the longer you stay in, the more wrinkled you get rs gold, Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who do not Runescape Gold, In the Orient young bulls are tested for the fight arena in a certain manner rs gold. Each is brought to the ring and allowed to attack a picador who pricks them with a lance..
