Today is the one-year anniversary of the Sisyphus Project.
I started this blog to entertain myself. So far, that’s working. I’ve also occasionally entertained my friend Richard who has seen fit to mention my blog in his and to comment on my blog more than any other reader. Of course, once would be more than any other reader, so if you want to chime in too, please do.
I’m kind of amazed that I do have some readers. Without doing anything to promote the blog, I get around 1,500 hits a month. I know thats fewer than 1,500 individual readers, but it’s a lot more than the four or five people I’ve told about the blog I’m writing. I even found a blog whose author I don’t know that linked to this one.
I haven’t done anything to promote this because it’s a hobby and I’m paying for it out of pocket. If a lot of people started reading it, I’d have to pay more and then I’d have to try to figure out a way to make money on it. So while I am a twit, you won’t find me pushing myself on Twitter.
I judge the first year a modest success. I’m a modest guy, so that’s okay. The truth is, I have a lot to be modest about.
While nobody is clamoring for the Sisyphus Project to continue, I believe I will continue writing about things I’m interested in, things that frustrate me, and things I find funny. But unlike Sisyphus, I won’t do it forever.
