Ta Da! A milestone of sorts…..

Your correspondent just noticed that the most recent post marked the 300th since the founding of Other Side.   Some have been short, some painfully long, but all, we trust, have given you a pause, or a smile, or at the very least, a reason to visit again.

With a few weeks to go before we ‘celebrate’ one year in the books, this represents an average of about 6 items a week, which is a pace difficult to sustain.  At least if you want to have a real life.

But we’ll see how it goes.  When you’re fond of shooting your mouth off, and you’re in a target rich environment, sometimes you don’t have much choice.

Remembering that the founding was at least in part inspired by the lack of accommodation in the traditional (and dying) local print media, it’s worth noting that over the same period, we could have had 12 letters and 12 commentaries published.

So for those who wondered, yes, it’s true.  The editorial standards here at Side are a good deal more loose and lax than those of The Ostrich.
