Today marks the fifth anniversary of The McWetlog and, as a result, my five-year anniversary as a blogger. This is, if you can believe it, The McWetlog’s 2,070th post; in the past five years there have also been 1,252 posts to The Map Room, 116 posts to DFL, and a whole bunch of posts elsewhere. I dabble.
In that five-year stretch, I have gone from an underworked, overpaid government employee who blogged to stave off boredom, to an underpaid, overscheduled, full-time/semi-freelance blogger who never has enough time or energy to keep ahead of all the work. Five years ago, I would never have imagined it — who would?
