This is the 1,500th post on Mr. Dilettante.
I started this blog during my lunch hour on December 13, 2005, mostly as a lark. It's turned into something else over time -- sometimes it's been a bit of an albatross. But now, 3 1/2 years on, Mr. Dilettante is still here.
I wrote something in that very first post that still rings true to me:
Blogging is like dropping a penny in a well; you listen for a splash and sometimes you don't hear one. But we'll do what we can to give you a worthwhile splash or two.
We'll keep dropping pennies in the well here and once in a while, we'll make a splash. Thank you for your support of this feature.
