This is my 500th post. I was going to put up a Phickle Thoughts but I think this is a significant enough thing that it deserves it's own post, right?

When I started this blog I really had no idea what I was doing. I just figured I'd jot down a thought or two here and there and maybe my family would read it. I still don't have a huge readership but there's a really solid community of people who read and comment here (and on many of the blogs that belong to those commenters) and it's been a really rewarding experience to "meet" so many different people through this blog.

It has also been a terrific way for me to share more of what's going on in my life with friends and family that I'm far away from. Now that Baby Philosofer is on the way it'll be an especially useful tool for insight into my parenting experience. I don't know how much I'll talk about the baby, since obviously some level of privacy is important, but I'm sure I'll share here and there.

Anyway, I don't really have much more to say about this post. I just happened to notice that my last post was 499 and it really struck me. If I had had to guess I would have said I was at maybe 300 posts. The fact that I'm already up to 500... well, it's pretty cool.

It's like a, it's like a call

500 pretty much guarantees you're headed to Cooperstown after you retire, assuming you don't get embroiled in a steroid scandal between now and then. So you got that going for you, which is nice.

That's pretty impressive.
