Today marks the one-year anniversary of this blog. I must admit that when I started Track Twenty-Nine, I was very much a fish out of water. Having freshly gotten off of the Amtrak Crescent from Atlanta, I was new to Washington and was entering a new phase of my life.
And it has been quite a year for this little blog. 130 posts and over 8000 page loads later, and Track Twenty-Nine is still chugging along with a full head of steam.
I had no idea where I was going to take Track Twenty-Nine when I started typing last August. I'm not sure I know where I'm going to take it now, but I do have some rough ideas. You can look forward to a continuation of several of the series I've started and there are some more transit maps in the works. Trust me, those are the most popular things on the site, by far. Indeed, my Streetcar plan, has drawn more visitors than ever to the site! Yesterday, there were 705 page loads, more than double the second highest date since I started keeping track on October 1.
I am impressed with the support and compliments I have gotten from my readers. I check the URLs referring to Track Twenty-Nine a couple of times a week and I'm happy to see a growing number of blogs linking here. I'm also quite happy to note that I'm sometimes referred to in other bloggers' posts.
I have intended all along to inspire a discussion. And it is wonderful to note that I'm finally succeeding. I value the input of others and input is precisely what I've been getting with my Streetcar plan. I hope the comments continue there as well as in my future posts.
But, I pontificate enough as a blogger. Now it's your turn. Where would you like to see this blog go over the next year?
