1,621 posts and counting

A few months ago Engadget's Ryan Block wrote his 5,000th post for the technology blog. I'm no Ryan Block, but a week or two ago I noticed that I was about to hit my 1,500th post for Weblogs Inc sites including PVR Wire, Download Squad, and TV Squad. I made a mental note to take a screenshot when that happened, and it totally slipped my mind.

Today I checked again and wouldn't you know it, I shot past 1,600 while I wasn't paying attention. So I figured I'd just stop now to pat myself on the back. Now, I believe good blogging should be a quality over quantity thing, just like good journalism. But it's still pretty astonishing to look at my body of work over the last year (it's almost exactly a year since I left my full time reporting job in Philadelphia to begin the perilous life of a freelance journalist/blogger).

In that year I've written an average of 5 blog entries per day, weekends included. Some are just quick snippets of the day's news, while others have been far more detailed (and fun to work on):
I've also produced some radio pieces this past year that I'm particularly proud of, including:
And the list goes on. In fact, every time I start to think that I'm about to become a full time blogger whether I like it or not, I wind up with several radio stories on my plate that pretty much leave me struggling to remember what free time felt like. I just picked up two new stories that should be a lot of fun to work on, but I'll tell you about those later.
