Big Anniversary Alert!

Tomorrow marks a major milestone for me. It was on March 1, 1997 (18 years ago) that I published the first issue of WordTips. In those 18 years I've published an issue every single week, for a total of well over 900 issues.

It's been a long and fascinating time. The biggest challenge (as one might suspect) is to make sure that I published an issue of the newsletter every week, regardless of what was happening in the world or in my life. The WordTips websites have grown to the point where they now have over 4,000 tips on them. (There are 2,200+ on the WordTips (menu) site and 1,800+ on the WordTips (ribbon) site.)

How long can this go on? It is hard to predict anything, but my plans include continuing to publish WordTips far into the foreseeable future.

I hope you have a great week!
