Initially, I intended not to mark this milestone for ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’ publicly because… well… it rather feels to me like I’m flaunting this achievement. However, I have been seriously reconsidering this thinking because of my strong sense of community here on WordPress. I sincerely hope that none of you find this post to be in poor taste.
You see, I have decided to share this with you because this is actually our milestone, rather than mine; and I don’t take you for granted.
It’s also that blogging is, by its very nature, a deliberately interactive form of writing. Publishing is instantaneous, and the discussions that ensue in the comments sections are just as significant as the posts themselves, if not more so. Personally, I often find myself perusing the comment sections of other people’s blog posts even before I read the entries above them.
My ulterior motive for posting this update is that I would be especially happy to hear from you about what kind of content you, my community, would like me to create. I love writing, and I have been ever so greatly enjoying this blogging project, but there is no question that you and our relationship are the reason why I haven’t been writing in a private journal instead of a blog. Connecting with you is deeply important to me.
Friends, I appreciate you, and I profoundly appreciate our meaningful interactions.
Thank you very much.

Congratulations David, wish you many more!
Also, I am a little confused whether your name is Ben Alexander or David.
My first name is David.
In Hebrew, ‘ben’ means ‘son of’, and my father’s name was Alexander. So, according to Jewish tradition, I am David ben Alexander.
Thanks so much for the kind words.
