Today is a milestone of sorts. This is the one thousandth post at (this inception of) Irreal. As I wrote after publishing a post everyday for a year, it's one of those things that doesn't seem like much until you try to do it. I remember reading blogs that are updated several times a day and that have thousands of posts in the archive and didn't think much of it. I wrote my first post for Irreal in April 2011 so it's taken me almost 3 years to get here.
I write Irreal mostly to amuse myself and, as Daniel Boorstin famously said, “to learn what I think1”. Still, I appreciate my readers and want to make Irreal valuable for you too so if there are some Irreal-like topics you'd like me to explore, use the comments to let me know.
The actual quote is, “I write to learn what I think. After all, the bars aren't open that early.”
