730 days, 1000+ posts later, PT keeps on truckin'

Two years and 1,002 posts ago today, Plainfield Today was launched into the vast, invisible world of the blogosphere.

It's been fun and even more fun as readership has grown, along with lively feedback and evidence the blog has had its impact on how the City conducts -- or reorganizes the conduct of -- its business.

(Think, most recently, of the flap over Administration plans to let Dudley House sink without a trace. Or of the costly-to-the-taxpayer unauthorized financial machinations perpetuated by former City Administrator Carlton McGee totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. Or of the Mayor's helicopter ride to Trenton, to name just a few.)

It's also been gratifying to see that Plainfield Today gets the nod for inclusion in such lists as the Star-Ledger's Kelly Heyboer's Jersey Blogs blogroll and that of the bellwether of all things political in New Jersey, PoliticsNJ.

Not to mention BlogNet NJ, where
Plainfield Today consistently ranks as the most-linked-to blog in New Jersey and bobs up and down like a cork on the waters of 'most influential', 'most active', and 'highest-rated'. (Hey! It's a blog-eat-blog world out there.)

Thanks for chuckling, giggling, or snickering as we face the absurdities, crudities and banalities of local political life. Or shaking your fist sometimes.

Want to thank me somehow? No money, please -- but you CAN refer
Plainfield Today (and the daily email CLIPS) to your friends, as you have so generously done in the past.

The more the merrier as we sally forth into Plainfield's glorious -- or is it inglorious? -- future.
