No. 1,400

AND NOW, this 20th day of January, 2018, a cold dreary day in January, I am tapping out my 1,400th post in this blog.  I imagine that I am the only person in the world who has actually read every one of them.

It doesn’t seem too long ago, March 5, 2014, that I wrote Post No. 1,000, an interview with Professor Al Pelaez who taught contracts to at least half of the lawyers in Pittsburgh.

On August 24, 2010, we celebrated Post No. 500 by conducting a Twitterview with Lance Godard, who ran the very successful legal blog (alas, no longer with us) 22 Tweets.

On March 1, 2010, I wrote Post No. 400. In it, I declared that I wrote blog posts because it made me happy.  “If you won’t allow yourself to be happy until you reach some goal, you will never be happy — ever.”

Before that, I didn’t keep track of the post numbers. Since the first post was on July 7, 2008, it took almost 2 years to get to 400, but only another 6 months to make it to 500.  Then, it took 4 more to make it to 1,000. And then another 4 to hit 1,400.

So what should I do to celebrate 1,500?  I hope to do so by the time this blog has a tenth anniversary in July.  As a ten-year old blog, Pittsburgh Legal Back Talk should have enough cred to do interviews of anybody in this town.  So, maybe we should do a six-month long series of interviews.  Why not?
