anniversary present

Instead of substantive information, today’s post focuses on me and this website.

Compliance Building went public on February 12, 2009.  Since then, it looks like I have managed to get out a blog post every business day.  Sometimes, more than one.

Thanks for reading. If you haven’t done so already, you can subscribe and have my posts sent to you. It’s free, except on the Kindle. (I can’t convince Amazon to change the price.)

I started my first blog, KM Space, on this day in 2007. I set up Real Estate Space a few months later. Now I’m moving into my fourth year blogging.

Here are some statistics from the past three years:

Compliance Building 873
KM Space 614
Real Estate Space 144
Total: 1631

I hope at least some of those posts were useful to you, whether you are a subscriber or one of the other 90,000 or so visitors to Compliance Building.

Why do I do this? I publish because the information is useful to me, but I’m happy to have you along for the ride. (I put down my thoughts in more detail in the Why I Blog page.) This blog is a personal knowledge management tool.

For those of you who know me from KM Space, I will continue to publish a subset of my posts to the KMspace feed. No need to say goodbye. Unless I’m boring you.
