Admittedly, I’m late. The twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of this web site was actually two weeks ago (give or take). I really should have put together something more monumental as is warranted by such a milestone. But real life has been a bit hectic, and I’ve never been good about anniversaries. Heck, it’s been five years since I celebrated my own birthday.

But here we are. A quarter century after I opened up that tiny, simple, and impressively ugly site to the world, we’re still here. I vaguely recall contemplating in the early days of the site “How long will this thing last?” Web sites came and went fairly regularly. The vast majority of the inflation sites that have popped up over the years are no longer with us.

I eventually flipped the question around: “What would make me stop doing this?”

It’s been a rough few years for BodyInflation.org. Both 2019 and 2020 saw multi-month outages. I haven’t had as much time to spend on the site as I’d like. But for the foreseeable future, I don’t see myself retiring from this just yet.

Thank you all for accompanying me on this long, meandering, and delightfully absurd journey. It’s been a blast, and I hope we’ll get many more years together.
