Geek Drivel’s Wooden Anniversary

On the afternoon of April 22nd, 2007, five years ago today, I wrote my first blog post. This will be my 1,663rd, for an average of a post roughly every 26 hours and 20 minutes. I’m not aware of an easy way to count the number of words in all of them, but I suspect it’s at least 45,000, which apparently qualifies it as a novel according to Stephen King.

(Did I ever mention that, if I were independently wealthy and didn’t have anything more important to do, I’d love to write SF/fantasy novels? I highly admire writers like Mercedes Lackey who subtly teach while they entertain, and I’d like to try my hand at it too some day.)

I’m still ridiculously busy, and likely will be for the foreseeable future, but I plan to get back to writing a post a day at some point soon. Until then, you’ll just have to amuse yourselves with the other 1,662 posts. 🙂


  1. Congrats! It’s been five years of good reading. I’m looking forward to finding what the next five bring. 🙂

    (I didn’t know you wanted to write novels! Cool!)
