Six Years? Really?

It hardly seems possible, but today marks the six-year anniversary of this blog, which began as "Waffyjon's Random Thoughts" and evolved to "Jon's Random Acts of Geekery"! At this point, the blog is approaching 4,700 posts (with the 5,000th post to come before I know it)!

The blog's come a long way from its earliest posts... the first day, I made several posts, then the next day, the first of my fake Godzilla Movie Comics covers, then four days with nothing, two days of a couple of posts each, then more Godzilla fake comics... and I worked hard to avoid skipping days after that! However, I missed posting on February 23 of 2005, March 3 through 7 of that year, the 10th through the 18th, only a few other days in March of that year... missed a bunch of days in April... but eventually I was able to get on track. Thanks to Blogger eventually allowing advance posting, I was able to not only get to daily posting, but also getting several months ahead! How far ahead? Well, at one point I was at least three months ahead of the game! Right now, I'm actually writing this post on December 19 of 2010, so I'm not even two months ahead as of this writing... but I'll get further ahead soon!

As things have progressed, features have come and gone, and some have even returned, like the Comics Advertisements! I've also done some spin-off blogs (some of which have ended their runs, others are continuing way beyond this date). As much fun as some of the spin-off blogs have been, I have to honestly say that I don't believe I'll be starting new spin-off blogs at this time (although that may change, if inspiration strikes)! The day will likely come where everything will be retired save for Random Acts of Geekery and the Comic Reading Library -- the other blogs will likely run out of material by early 2012. Like I said, I work as far ahead as I can!

I'd like to thank everybody that's been reading this blog, as well as my other blogs, whether you've been here from the beginning or have joined me along the way! I'd especially like to thank those of you who've supported the blog via linking to it from your own blogs or websites, those who have checked out the advertiser links, and those of you who have purchased something through my Amazon Associates links!

I've got lots of great stuff planned for the future of this blog... the eventual return of "The Way of the Geek" (assuming I can get more interviewees lined up), plus all-new features, like "Geek TV"! All the features you've come to expect will continue as well, such as "Cool Stuff," "Fandom Library," "Give-A-Show Fridays," "Children's Book Theatre"... pretty much everything currently running except for "Movie of the Week" (which will be ending sometime in the next few months as I reach the end of the alphabet) and "By the 10s" (when I run out of titles I haven't posted here yet)... and the end of "Original Comic Art" is likely to happen before too much longer, for that matter!

So stick around! I promise you daily geekery here for as long as I can continue to work on this blog!
