That's right, Gilbert Spills It officially turns one today! While this project was incubating for a couple of weeks before it became public, the very first post was published a year ago today.
It has been an interesting year, and I'd like to thank everyone who reads. I've had over 13 thousand hits in the last year, and I can gladly report that they aren't all spambots and my parents. This blog has helped me accomplish some of the goals that I had in mind when I started it, others I am still working on, and there have also been some totally unexpected outcomes. It is still very much a work in progress, and there are more developments on the way.
If there is one thing I have to complain about, it's that I don't post here enough. I aim for once a week, but I often fall short of that goal. Thrice a month seems to be closer to the mark. I'm working on it, what can I say?
I'd like to thank everyone for their support, their readership, and I'd also like to encourage you to comment more. When I got this started, I thought there would be a little bit more of a conversation here. But at least everyone's feedback is positive. I'll take that. Hell, I'm just glad y'all are reading.
So in celebration, open up a nice bottle tonight. And tip your waiter.
