Fifteen hundred is kind of a lot. I should know. This is my fifteenth hundred post on Critically Rated. It took me two years and one day to write this many posts. I’m not looking for a medal or a cookie or anything. I just want a little acknowledgment and I have no problems with patting myself on the back if nobody else will. Fifteen hundred posts. Let that sink in for a minute. One thousand, five hundred posts. That’s a lot of shit that I’ve judged on a scale of 1-17. I didn’t know that there were really that many things to write about. I never planned on writing this much, but it’s not a herculean task if you just take it one word at a time.
I first started blogging as a way to catalog my life experiences. I wanted to know which beers I’ve consumed, what movies I’ve watched, I wanted to remember life’s little situations and landmark moments. And I feel like this site lets me do that. I like writing for this site more than you enjoy reading it. But you, the reader, are the most important contributor to this site. Nothing is worth writing about if there’s nobody there to read it. And not only do you read my stuff, you sometimes share it with your friends, and that’s far more rewarding than you will ever know. Thank you for visiting my site. Thank you for taking the time to read my bullshit. And if I wrote something about you, thank you for the inspiration. Fifteen hundred posts was easy… let’s see if we can do fifteen hundred more.
