This blog is 12 years old today. Twelve years!

I can’t even believe it.

There is a term I’ve seen repeatedly used to describe this blog: “under-appreciated”.
Occasionally I’ve seen the phrase “undervalued” used instead.

It’s nice to hear, but I’m not sure it is true. How can something be under-appreciated? Either it has value and people know it and appreciate it, or it doesn’t. I’m not even sure how you could measure such a thing.

It is a nice sentiment, though. And I take it to mean I’m producing content (what a pretentious word!) that people believe is worth more than the recognition I get for it. That’s a nice thing to hear.

So, thank you to those who have said that about my blog over the past 12 years. And thanks to all of you for reading and putting up with me.

This blog is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.
