This is the 200th Sad Music Is Uplifting blog.

I haven’t kept up much of anything, ever, for 200 weeks in a row.  But I’ve managed this, somehow.  Thanks for reading, thanks for talking to me about it, thanks for telling me you read it (even though I know some of you must have been lying, since I know how many views the page gets each week. But maybe the stats are lying and you're not.  Maybe you are expressing an essential truth that mere cold numbers cannot; maybe you were just being encouraging. If so, thanks, it's appreciated).  I never thought it would last this long.

Here’s some interesting statistical information about this blog:
