I almost missed this milestone. Today I wrote my 500th post for the DNA Barcoding blog. My posts have on average a length of 400 words which means I have written about 200 000 words about DNA Barcoding and Biodiversity Research. According to Amazon's Text Stats feature, the median length for all books is about 64,000 words - go figure.
A big thank you to all my readers for making this possible. Believe or not, this blog's audience is still growing continuously.
