Yesterday's milestone (admittedly a minor one) of 2,500 posts is of significance only to me. I've looked back over the last few months' production and note that I'm writing less, and linking more. There are plenty of other bloggers who have elevated the "linky love" thing to a fine art, and one more or less won't make that big a difference.
I'm going into semi-retirement, meaning that I'll write if something grabs my attention - almost a certainty in an election year, especially this election year - but otherwise will hold my
tongue fingers. I'll still be reading all my favorites every day, and will continue to comment as before.
In closing, there's this:
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. (Philippians 4:8, NKJV)
Vaya con Dios, my friends. See ya around the blogosphere!
