Limbering up for the next thousand.

May 17th, 2008


I neglected to mention it a dozen posts ago when it happened, but I’ve now written more than 1,000 posts for this blog, stretching all the way back to the first two posts I ever made — on my blogging raison d’etre and on Jack LaLanne — on 17 December 2005.

What will the next 1,000 posts bring? My moods tend to shift, so who knows, but given how I’m thinking about it right now, I’d say less in the way of pop-psych and pep talks, and more in the way of active analysis of books, policy, and history — maybe even fiction and poetry. More posts, more intensity, better quality. Given my personality, the choice is probably always going to come down to perfectionism or prolificity; given that choice, I’m leaning toward being prolific.

But here, let me take your pulse on this: what would you suggest I write about?

    Good thoughts don’t have to be long to be special. We need balance and we need nurturing. Any old bone you want to throw our way will be welcome.

    Thanks, Mom! Given the way my mind works, you can be sure I’ll keep thinking in that vein. I’m just hoping to sweeten the mix with other things.

    No, Adrienne, I’m sorry. There won’t be any ponies. I don’t know how else to break it to you.
