1000 posts!

By Ed Yong | May 11, 2011 1:05 pm

For those of you that didn’t read to the end of the last post on pain and memory, that was my 1000th post for this blog, all the way from its early years as a WordPress toddler, to its current incarnation at Discover. The count excludes photos, the Saturday links and personal bits like this – substantial science writing only.

Thanks to everyone who reads what I write. To the next thousand!
