A kind of milestone

One thousand blog-posts. That’s quite a milestone, really.

Not quite there yet: this one’s number nine hundred and ninety-nine, to be precise. Though out of those so far, there were the hundred or so in the Twitter-extracts series – ‘A week in Tweets’ – that few people read and even fewer people valued; and also perhaps twenty or thirty posts or maybe a few more, on admin matters and other miscellaneous themes. So not really a thousand, you could argue. Not quite yet. But soon.

Yet whichever way we count it, that’s already well over eight hundred posts on enterprise-architecture and related themes – strategy, society, big-picture, stuff like that. More than three hundred distinct diagrams or drawings; and somewhere between one to two million words overall – much of it original research and explorations that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. That’s a lot.

No definite ideas as to where this will take us next, though I should have some few things to say about when I do reach number one thousand – tomorrow, maybe. Either way, thank you for accompanying me on this journey: I hope you’ve found at least something of value in what you’ve seen here as you’ve journeyed with me.

Here’s to the next thousand posts! 🙂

  1. No matter how we do the math here… Let’s celebrate!

    Congratulations Tom and more than anything else, THANK YOU for sharing your thoughts with us.
    I must say that 1000 is quite impressive, even though I am a quite regular reader of your posts, I didn’t read them all “yet” – I know, I’m bad ;). But, for my defense, I think I bought most of your books on Leanpub 😉

    So, to conclude. Thank you Tom for the great work. Continue sharing and interacting, make us all think and grow!
    Cheers

    By the way, I liked the idea of the “a week in tweets”, I even tried to apply it myself, but it requested too much time spent, for very little feedback. I quit for a while a nowadays, since 10 days to be accurate, I try a new way: curation. I use scoop.it to do this, have a look if you wish – you are, of course, part of it! 😉 here is the link to my curation topics: http://www.scoop.it/u/emeric-nectoux

  2. Congratulations, Tom! By the way, I’m one of those who miss the “Week in tweets” series.

    Mike, Emeric, Ivo, Gene – many thanks indeed to all of you – very much appreciated! 🙂

    Ivo: re ‘A week in Tweets’, I do in fact still collect all of the links, it’s just I haven’t published them because I didn’t think anyone else was interested. At present they’re in .DOC files, one per month: would you like me to put them up on a public server somewhere, such as on Dropbox? or here?
