WordPress: Remove broken links

As a general rule, I don’t do much in the way of SEO (search engine optimization) on this blog. I’m not trying to sell anything, readership numbers are largely irrelevant to me, and I am not serving any ads. While I wouldn’t mind having a readership in the tens or hundreds of thousands, the fact is I have neither the time nor the inclination to spend money on increasing readership numbers.

Eight years, six months and five hundred posts later

Post number 500 to the blog went by without me noticing it, but I feel it’s worth making note of, as I did when I passed four hundred posts back in October of 2014. For the most part, I’ve been able to keep up a weekly post schedule since then, a fact of which I am fairly proud. It’s been a fun journey for me.
