To paraphrase his title, 3 years as a proud member (and counting…):
It has been an honor and a privilege to write for you, dear reader, these past three years. Though I don’t know what the next three years hold for this website, I hope — and believe — that my best creative work is still before me.
I know this to be true, without a doubt. Congratulations Shawn on an amazing achievement. The Internet is a much better place with you out there.
