From enthusiasm to consistency
When I wrote my first blog on the 8th of December 2003, I thought I would write everyday and I did for the rest of that month and most of the month of January 2004.
But as the months went by, I missed out a few and when I wrote I probably got 5 blogs in.
I suppose I got more serious about blogging at the beginning of 2006 and the numbers began to add up.
Today, the number hits 1,000 at 4 years and 267 days according to my blog console; days because the programmers handling my blog site could not break the days down into months and days in a consistent way.
Keeping my own faith
I have tried to stay true to Akin playing on the English meaning of the word pertaining to likeness rather than the Yoruba meaning which is more like a heroic warrior, I don't do heroics just the occasional histrionics.
It is about things too concerning to ignore and it is still essentially similar to what is known, compatible to what is expected and related to the unexpected.
I write with thanks
Whilst I write what I have written and when it is written it is what I have decided to write, I thank my readers – friendly, unfriendly, complimentary and downright obnoxious – you all matter - your readership and commentary offers even that little bit of satisfaction, I look forward to the next 1,000 in probably a lot less time than it took the first.
Thanks and cheers.
