The Magic 1,000 Number
This is the 1,000th post on the EPL Talk Blog since it launched on January 2, 2006. That’s roughly 50 posts a month for 20 months in a row, which is approximately 1.5 posts per day.
During that time, we’ve seen a lot. The 2006 World Cup. The improved amount and quality of Premier League coverage on U.S. TV and broadband. The launch of more soccer podcasts and, of course, some excellent comments by you, the reader. And let’s not forget the contributing writers including John Nicholson, The Scout and others.
This EPL Talk Blog was actually not the first incarnation. I began one in November, 2005 — which is still live at http://epltalk.wordpress.com/
Thanks for your continued support, and here’s to another 1,000 posts!
