I have written over two thousand and six hundred posts in this Empoprise-BI business blog. I could have written this in numeric form, but just seeing the word "thousand" spelled out gives me pause.
My very first post to this blog was written on January 29, 2009. Its title? Test post.
This was followed by other test posts. It wasn't until my sixth post, Why Harlan Koch needs to run Starbucks, that I began hitting my stride. And in those 2,600+ posts, I've covered a lot of ground - ground that many of you have missed.
I guess that I could republish every single post in the blog again. That would increase the number of posts to 5,200, but could get messy for other reasons.
Or I could just retweet links for the posts at the empoprises Twitter account, but that's not a good idea either.
The best idea that I came up with was to (a) only share a very small subset of the historical posts, and (b) share it in a location where you have to opt-in to see the comment.

So be sure to pop in throughout the day. After all, you won't be watching Jerry Lewis.
