Post number 1013

It's hard to believe we have already reached the anniversary milestone of our 1013th post here on clerkmanifesto. Why, it seems like less than two weeks ago that we reached our 1000th post. That was a party! And here we are already at 1013! Wow. 

Many of you wonder why 1013 is such a significant number. I was wondering that too, but a simple Google search of 1013 quickly brought up, um, actually, nothing of note or interest.

I know what you are thinking. "It had to happen. More than a thousand posts of breathtaking scope, range, and artistry. He had to finally run out of things to say."


I have millions of things to say. I will never run out of things to say. I have great, bountiful, endless things to say.

For instance did anyone ever tell you about the time Sweyn was proclaimed the King of all England? It was back in 1013. A very special time and a very special year. One we like to remember around here. Usually with a big party, with delicious cheeses, and champagne, but only if the special numbers line up, and no one says anything about running out of things to say.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
