4 Years of Selenian Boondocks

FWIW, I just noticed today that last week (on the 16th) was the four year anniversary of me starting this blog.  I can’t say my readership is that high compared to some, but nearly 300,000 hits and over 600 published articles over the past four years is still pretty impressive to me.  I’m not as prolific as many, but I’d like to think that my attempts at putting out some original thought on space technology and policy have earned me a happy niche in the blogosphere.

Here’s looking forward to another good year.

    I very much like the original content on this blog. It’s not just linking to other people or rehashing some talking points. (Which are not lousy things by themselves, but somebody has to do the original work.)

    I know I’ve referenced ideas and data I’ve first seen here, multiple times and in multiple places. Especially the ESAS critique! But many other things as well, like depots. You also were a great example for me, to start blogging. I wish I had the skill and patience to write as well rounded posts as most of yours are.

    So, reader numbers don’t tell everything. Your ideas circulate far and wide, and your work has effect.
    I’d say, for spacefaring interested engineers (which I think is a group that matters a lot, hopefully in the future especially), this blog is pretty influential.
