Turns Six Years Old Today

Six years ago I made my first post, and today is my 16,047th post.  Who knows how many more I have in me.

Why do I blog?  To be honest, I’m not sure anymore.  I like to connect with people.  I like to expose people to things they may normally not be exposed to, or try to bring a different perspective to them.  I like share things I find interesting.  I like to make people think.  And I guess I like knowing that I can be a little escape from everyone’s workday for a few minutes, and knowing that some of things I share are talked about at the dinner table or with loved ones.

Today is also my dearly departed mother’s birthday, she would have turned 63.  As I do every year, I choose to make only one post, and ask all of you to honor her by finding a magazine or book to read.  Mom was a voraciously proud reader, and I would appreciate it if you would use the time you normally would use checking out this blog and spend it reading as a favor to me.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to spend it with me.

    Congrats Keith! And thank you.
    I have been following your blog for most of its existence, and I thank you! My days wouldn't be the same without your posts. I finished a book on my way in to the office today, and have the next one waiting – I will dig into the first chapter right now.

    You've certainly succeeded in achieving your blog's mission statement. Those are all the reasons I read the blog—several times a day.

    There is not a day in which I don't devote at least 1/2 hour to reading a book. Today I'll give you an hour
