This blog’s first post was one year ago today.
Total Views: 44,207 (To put this in perspective, a major national blog could probably easily get this many hits in a day. The one famous blogger I sort of know gets about 22,000 hits a day.)
Usual # of visits per day: currently around 180
Number of regular readers: I have absolutely no idea, and don’t really care. I am going for quality, not quantity, man.

It was one year ago today that I started JSFW not even knowing how to post a photo into a blog entry.
Thanks to all of you for the wonderful knitting books, music CDs, thoughtful and interesting comments and moral support. Thanks for writing interesting blogs that I check every day. Thank you for reading my writing, and thank you for commenting on it. Thank you for valuing what I say and how I say it.
We’ve been through floods, droughts, math, boring winter breaks and other great crises. Kate bought a house. Cal handled it very well, I think, when a river flowed into her house. Erik considered moving, and was nearly driven mad by rain. (Did Cal sympathize?) CCR bought a condo. Wil revealed the secret of why there is only one “L” in his first name. Pyracantha got a free MIDI keyboard. Michelle (who, like me, is a party animal), made salsa and potted her avocado pit.
I wish I knew more about what Anne is doing.
Meanwhile I sat here blogging with the cats, who were briefly five in number and are now four.
I never dreamed how much I would enjoy doing this, and never imagined I’d make new friends from all over just because of having a blog.
Please accept a very warm thank-you from me.
