Just as a marker or milestone.
Post #800 was made yesterday.
Also, yesterday at 10:13 p.m., someone from Australia read the blog, and had the distinction of being the 20,000th hit on the blog, as near as Statcounter can count.
At 10:52 p.m. last night, one of my few "regular" readers, a verizon user from West Virginia, was the person to make hit #20,001 on the blog -- the first of the next 10,000.
At the end of the month, the blog will be two years old.
