We very quietly reached another goal this week. Since I started this site almost three years ago, I’ve wanted to have as many comments as I had entries. I don’t know why, it just seemed like a good goal to have.
The first iteration of the site was a custom PHP app that didn’t even have comments, so we got a late start. We flirted with the goal for the last few weeks, but it doesn’t help that we’re posting like chipmunks on crack these days. I’m also really anal-retentive about the comments — there are no spams, “me toos,” or test comments in the database. All comments are legit.
Anyway, comments passed up entries sometime on Sunday afternoon. As I write this, we have 2,909 entries and 2,938 comments. Next goal: 3,000 entries, which we’ll hit by the end of the month. The ultimate goal has always been 5,000 entries, and we’re on a pace to hit that by the end of next year.
