This is post number 2,500 on this blog.

What started originally as a way to stop wasting my evenings has turned into an obsessive exercise that has resulted in over 500,000 words and 2.5 million views.

I’ve written from hospital beds and hotel rooms, with nothing (so far) getting in my way of delivering something every weeknight for the past 9 and a half years.

It has taken a lot of effort and there are times when I wonder how much longer I can keep going for.  Do I have the time, the ideas, the energy?  So far, the answer has been yes.

But throughout the journey, I have learned 3 things:

  • I still have a lot to learn and aspire to continue to get better,
  • I still enjoy the challenge of trying to come up with content that encourages, equips and inspires others,
  • I am grateful for the support and feedback from my readers.

This is a project that I am very proud and slightly self-conscious of.  I know that I’m not the greatest writer or motivator going around, but I am determined to be the best version of me and believe that this is enough.

So thanks everyone and here’s to another 2,500.
