2,000 Posts and (Still) Counting

It took me about 10½ months to reach my 1,000th post here at The Genealogue, but only 9¾ months to reach my 2,000th. At this rate, in the year 2087 I will be publishing 1,000 posts per day—a remarkable feat for a man of 118.

As before, I want to take this opportunity to thank my loyal readers, and to heap scorn on my disloyal readers. Special thanks to those fellow bloggers who conspire daily to make me feel inadequate. People like Megan, Craig, Dana, Randy, Sharon, Janice, Jasia, Schelly, Lee, Joe, and Steve. Thanks also to the dozens of other genealogy bloggers whose feeds I consume, and to the hundreds more rattling their keyboards in hopes of being heard.

Jasia

Back at 'ya Chris. The rest of us feel inadequate in terms of the sheer volume of blog posts you put out. Keep going man, we love ya!

Chris

Yes, what my blog lacks in quality it makes up for in quantity.

Megan

Hey Chris,

Happy 2000th to the best genealogical blogger out there! Thanks for my daily guffaw. Don't know how you do it, but really glad you do!

Janice

Chris,

You truly are the best genealogical blogger in cyberspace. You are my daily entertainment. May you blog for a million more posts...

Janice

Chris,

Well done...how many a day is it? You started in May 2005, so that's about 21 months, about 630 days, or more than 3 per day average.

I still want to know why you didn't want to meet me and my wife for lunch back in August when we drove through Oxford County. I told my wife that you were a wild and crazy blogger who slaved over his computer 18 hours a day writing funny stuff. She believed me, and didn't complain as much about my computer hours until she figured out that you might be single. So, in order to restore harmony in my house, would you please confess that you are married to a woman who believes in your dream and supports your geneaholic habit?

Thanks -- Randy

Chris

Married? I'll have to check my GEDCOM...

Joe

Dude!
Stop reminding me I have 1,940 blog posts to write!
-a fan (who has posted 60 times in 10 months)

Chris

Joe, I hate to be a hard-ass but you really need to start pulling your weight. If I don't see 126 new posts in my Inbox by this weekend, I'm going to have to let you go.

Dana

Thanks for the mention and right back at you. And I apologize I didn't comment sooner.
