Hello! This is my 8,000th post on Whatever!*
*Not actually the 8,000th post on Whatever, because other people have made guest posts over the years. This is actually the 8,093rd post on Whatever.**
**It’s not actually the 8,093rd post on Whatever, either, because the posts here currently only go back to March of 2002, and I was writing on the site far earlier than that (going back to September of 1998; September 13th, 1998, to be precise). There’s probably between 1,000 and 2,000 posts unaccounted for.***
***Speaking of unaccounted posts, I don’t know that Big Idea posts should count as posts by me, because they are mostly written by other people; I just put in an opening graph and post them, which means the WordPress software counts them as mine.****
****Also, now that I think of it, there are some guest posts from several years back which I accidentally deleted and then reposted, which are now reposted under my account. They probably shouldn’t be counted as mine, either.*****
*****Also, I think there may be at least a couple of duplicate posts, caused when the database of entries was ported over to the WordPress VIP servers back in 2008.
So, uh. Yeah.
Hello! I’ve been writing on Whatever for a really long time now.
Here, have a picture of a cat.
