Upcoming blog-related milestones: At some point over the next day or so, this blog's Sitemeter hit counter will pass the 20 million page view mark. When "How Appealing" came into being on May 6, 2002, I had yet to install the Sitemeter counter, and thus the blog has in all likelihood already eclipsed that mark. Soon, however, actual evidence of that accomplishment will exist.

A few days ago, this blog recorded its 45,000th post on the Movable Type blogging platform, which "How Appealing" switched to from Blogger in March 2005.

Last but not least, this blog will turn ten years old on May 6, 2012. Between now and then, I will try and find some appropriate way to commemorate the event.
