Number 999

If Mike Mahaffie takes note of the odometer rolling over on his Prius, I can do the same on my blog: This is post number 999 on TommyWonk.
I started TommyWonk on
Wednesday, February 23, 2005 (not that anyone was paying attention), and got started in earnest in March. The Delaware blogosphere was smaller then. Hube was around, as was Sneaking Supsicions. Dana started Delaware Watch in March, and Jack Markel started blogging then as well. Dana and Jack were the first two bloggers to link to me.
Since then the blogoshere has expanded considerably, and what started for me as a solitary endeavor has become a link to new friends and a connection to people who not long ago hardly know what blogs were. It is becoming increasingly common for Delaware's bloggers to appear on radio, local television and in newspapers. Why? Because after listening to the old hands say the same old things year after year, people are interested in hearing fresh perspectives on the events and issues of the day. Because people are discovering that the best bloggers have something interesting to say and say it rather well.
For more fresh perspectives, you might want to check out these recent additions to my blogroll: The Delaware Curmudgeon by Shirley Vandever, The Soapbox by Mat Marshal, Delaware Libertarian by Steve Newton and Daily Delaware by the Kossack known as Delaware Dem.

Congrats, Tom! You've made blogging into what it truly should be -- an avenue for real information and advocacy.

May there be 999 more!
