500 Posts!

When I started TransGriot on January 1, 2006 I just simply wanted to get the voice of an African-American transperson into the blogosphere. I noticed that we were absent from the conversation and in the spirit of my ancestors, decided to do it my damned self and provide that voice.

It took me a little less than three years, but I've now reached the 500 posts milestone. Hmm. I guess I've had a lot to say over the last two and a half years.

Now I'm headed to the next milestone post level. I still have a lot of thoughts to express about myriad issues. I'm glad that you surf your way to my blog and keep coming back, and I thank you for that.

I was reading Alexandra Billings' Stillettos and Sneakers blog the other day and ran across an interesting post. It takes you to a site that asks you to plug in the blog URL and spits back a blog readability level.

I decided to check it out and see what TransGriot would score and it spit back an undergraduate college level score. I'm going to have to play with it and see what ratings other blogs and websites got according to this site.

I found it interesting.

One of my goals when I started TransGriot was to create an informative blog that people would enjoy reading and come back to. My steadily climbing Technorati authority ranking and your comments are a testament to how well I'm doing in achieving that goal.

Speaking of comments, I enjoy receiving them from you TransGriot readers on my various posts, so please keep them coming. I deeply appreciate the feedback.

Even if the rating says it's undergraduate college level reading, whatever your educational level is, don't let that 'scurr' you from checking out what this Phenomenal Transwoman has to say about the world around her.

Hi Monica,

Congrats!!!! I have enjoyed your posts very much and just as importantly, learned a lot in the process.

As they say, keep up the good work!

Ms Deux,

Athough neither one of our blogs garnered official recognition in the recently concluded Weblog awards, my reward is when people tell me how much they like my blog and how informative it is.

It lets me know that the work, heart and soul, thought and research I put into these posts is appreciated by you dear readers..
