Today is the two year anniversary of Ideofact (here's the first ever post). I don't know that I ever expected to keep this going so long -- I figured I'd keep going as long as it felt like fun. The last two nights I just didn't feel up to posting -- it was not so much that I didn't want to write, rather that actual work intruded, and by the time I finished the actual work, I had no energy for this effort. I might slow down a bit in the next year, but there is one thing I've been itching to do for a while. I've added a new category to go along with Essays, Apocrypha and Ephemera (actually, I do categorize all the posts that way; maybe someday I'll bother to display it somehow).

Thanks to all the readers who've stopped by here, to the commenters, to the bloggers who've linked me, and to those who have emailed me -- you've made this hobby worth the while over the past two years.

Congrats Bill! my own 2yr anniversary is coming up, and then one month later my daughters 2yr birthday, so its been an eventful couple of years :)

I hope you continue to blog for years to come. I may not always leave comments, but I am a regular reader, and your posts are always educational. Thats a rare thing in the blogsphere.
