Happy 5th birthday, SFDB.
That's 35 in dog years.
That's how long it feels like I've been doing this sometimes. Last week I was pretty much at my wit's end and came so close to bagging the whole thing. The blogosphere has changed. "Blogging" has come to incorporate promoting and selling and endorsing and has become just another social media platform. There are some old school bloggers left, but I find the energy and focus lacking a lot of times.
And I've changed over the 5 years.
The goals I had for this blog, while still there, feel less obtainable. I've become perhaps a little too cynical about the whole thing and sometimes it shows in my writing.
But we're going to keep motoring on. With any luck at all, we'll be talking about 6 years this time next year.
Here are the stats...
