The Big Five-Oh-Oh

.
I've blogging since June 2006, and this is a milestone: my 500th post. In the first few months I didn't blog with any regularity--frankly, I didn't know what I wanted to write about--but by the the time I reported on the Miami art fairs in December, All's Fair that year, I knew what I wanted to do. I've been writing about the art I see in New York City and on my travels ever since. I'm fully committed.
.
There are some other interesting numbers: 618 Followers (love you!) and some 750,000 hits since I began tracking readership in early 2008. I just bought more space from Blogger, so I can go for another 500 posts and then some. I guess that's a commitment. Are you with me?

Nancy Natale said...

Wow! That's a lot of words, a lot of images, a lot of work and a lot of enjoyment and information for your readers. Thank you for making this the best art blog in the blogosphere by giving us your biased, myopic, incomplete and journalistically suspect views and opinions. You are a model for the rest of us.

I'm late to this post, but a big Congratulations!

Your diligence, persistence, and relentless search for the good stuff (information, quality art, most relevant news for artists) makes this my first stop online.
I wish you another 500 more!
