This morning, I found that this blog had logged 9999 valid comments. (That's on 594 posts, in just over two years.) So as I've been working today, I've been keeping an eye out for comment 10,000.
I thought, hey, maybe I should give the 10,000th commenter a prize. An annual pass for their transit system. Ten advance copies of my book. A deluxe vacation for two to the Brisbane busway.
But it's been a couple of hours. So I think I'll just write the 10,000th comment myself, and save a bundle on prize money!
Really, the great comment strings on this blog keep me going, so keep them coming!
