I turned 14 years old. TODAY.

 

14 years ago, I sat in my much smaller office and said, “I’m going to start a blog.”

So I did.  

And oh, what a ride this blog has been.

It’s where I announced the crowdfunding of Godspell.  It’s where I announced the livestreaming of Daddy Long Legs. It’s where I announced my iPhone commercial.

In those 14 years, it has been mentioned in the NY Times and Vanity Fair.  And it has been flamed on chat boards. 

In other words, this blog is everything and more than I ever could have imagined.

I tried to quit it a couple of times.  And, I keep comin’ back to it.  Because I believe conversations about the theater are what keep the theater kickin’. 

So I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for reading.  And . . . because I’m a data guy – I also wanted to show you something which I found fascinating.

Of the thousands of blogs I’ve written . . . literally thousands, which ones do you think are the most popular?

I’ll tell you.  

Here are the Top 10 blogs over this blog’s 14 years of existence.  (And it’s no coincidence that 3 of them were written in 2020).  Enjoy ‘em!

I’m going to keep bloggin’.  Because I’ve been doing it for almost 1/4 of my life now!
