Hey, I just noticed that I have passed the "1000th" post mark! This is #1005 for this blog.
Most people do a special post to commemorate their 1000th post. So here it is:
I started this blog in March 2005 at the insistence of a friend. It was lonely at first writing and having the rare comment pop up here or there, but as blogging became more popular I met more and more people - some have become good friends, all have become special to me.
Music brings people together. We certainly don't all have the same taste, but most of you who read here share a passion for music and on that level we have a bond.
I've met some young people here that know more about the music of era than I do (especially Jeff, one of my loyal readers from the start!). Nothing thrills me more than young (under 30) people who appreciate Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, etc. etc.
I've gotten to know some very sweet women via this blog because their husbands read here (this is definitely a male dominant readership, my bros in rock and roll!).
Some of you enjoy having heated debates in my comments - I love that! As long as people are not mean to each other I think its great voice diverse opinions.
Then there are the way cool Rockin Blogger Chicks. You know who you are :)
There's a few of you out there that know what my son is dealing with right now and you've emailed to express your concern and hug me with your words, it makes a difference. It helps me know that even though I feel alone, I'm not.
Now and then I find myself thinking "I have nothing more to say. I should just quit this whole blog thing". But I can't now, cause I have a cool new header. And because even when life gets dark, music is there to carry me through.
