It snuck up on me. It wasn’t until this afternoon that I realized that today is the 10th anniversary of my starting this website.
I guess this is sort of a big one.
8,921 images. (90%+ are taken by me. The rest are images from the news, from cell phone screen captures, and so on.) To be perfectly honest, some of my favorite images of those 8,921 were posted yesterday. Still just a bit gobsmacked by that.
10 audio clips.
2,978 total comments.
75,498 total views.
49,522 total visitors to the site.
11,438 total likes.
1,827 followers (730 from WordPress, 703 from Twitter, 280 from FaceBook, 10 from Tumblr, 58 from post.news, and 46 from Spoutible)
God alone knows how many words.
The last time I either was too busy or, more likely, simply forgot to post anything was April 10, 2020. Since they I’ve posted 1,115 days in a row.
In total there have only been fourteen days of those 3,653 days when I didn’t post anything at all.
I’m not only here (which is probably the most reliable source since I have the most control over the site’s existance) but also on:
- Twitter (@momdude56)
- Facebook (/paul.willett.56)
- Mastodon (@momdude)
- Post (@momdude)
- Spoutible (@momdude)
- Instagram (@momdude56)

- BlueSky (waiting for an invite, but I’ll give you three guesses what it will be…)
- Email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I hope that at least a few of the 1,827 folks who get notified every day that I’ve posted something take a minute to look and/or read and get a moment of zen or pleasure from it. I enjoy creating it.
As always, I hope that in the next year there are many more occasions to share a pretty picture, a goofy story, or something clever.
As always, I hope that in the next year there will be many fewer occasions to descend into a venting rant about something stupid, annoying, or depressing.
As do we all, I’m sure.
As a lovely parting gift, couple of favorite pictures from the last year:
