Lol. This made my weekend.
Something curious happened last weekend: I published my 9,000th blog post here on this particular WordPress installation.
I stared at that number for a moment – that’s a big number. Wow, that’s a lot of clicks on that “Publish” button.
I could probably say a lot about those 9,000 clicks but instead my mind and my hands wandered to another question that I am not entirely sure I’ll ever be able to answer or know concretely: I wondered about the total number of blog posts that I’ve ever published in my entire life.
Roenne competed in her first chess tournament this past weekend and was one of nearly 1,200 kids who participated. Insanity. This was also my first chess tournament so I learned a ton too.
