Every year that I celebrate the anniversary of this blog I relate how I never imagined it lasting so long. I certainly never imagined writing my one thousandth post, which is what I'm doing today. One thousand times I've shared a song or two (or five), or a video, or a contest, or a concert review, or some such music related content. It kind of snuck up on me, too. It struck me in the early nine hundreds that I might make it, but then it slipped out of mind, until just a few days ago.
I'm not sure how much longer MISB will last, to be honest with you. I'd taken a few weeks away from it. Needed the time to listen to some music and just listen, not worry about what to write about it. Dug out some old albums that, although nothing cutting edge, just felt right.
Or maybe you didn't notice that I had taken a few weeks off. It's hard to tell how many of you are regular readers and how many swoop in for a song or two and then move on to the next blog out there. A few months ago, I celebrated MISB's third birthday and asked readers to leave a note sharing what they've uncovered while reading. I had five comments. Five readers who I'm sincerely grateful to for taking a minute (or less) to leave their mark. I had hoped for a little more outpouring of support to be frank.
Yesterday I posted after my two week hiatus. An apt song - Coma. Time to wake up. I've still got some music in me to share, so don't expect MISB to turn into a ghost town yet. For those of you who've been with me for a while, even if I don't know you, even if you've never left a comment, thanks.
