busy as a newborn calf


Y
ou know, I've got so many irons in the fire I am surprised I havent been branded twice. Dang if it all dont just turn into work after a while. You write a nice sentence or two and then everybody starts asking you to do it again. Flattery gets you everywhere so I comply but as a result I have lagged behind in my posts and then I try and get by with a 'filler' like this one. If you 0nly knew the long heavy silences between each captivating line you would fully understand. Y'all know me one way but what throws the coins my way, and I mean 'coins' and mostly dimes and nickles and a few quarters and rarely still half and full dollars, is I write or dictate to someone who does. I used to write ad copy, I have written an odd piece (I was Ranch Handler) here and there, some brochure type stuff - you know stuff like that so I dont shy away from that type of work - key word here is work and I am always happy to do it again. Problem with working is it takes away from doing other things that are also work related, or so I would hope, and that is maintaining the blog. I passed the 800 mark on posts the other day and when the 1000 rolls around you know there is going to be a party. Here is the deal I am at 806 with this one that means I have 194 to go - we're looking at December for this party unless I start doubling up, what do I do? You see - skipping days isnt helping anyone!

806! That's a whole lotta posts. You can do 194. We believe in your effort! Perhaps 2-3x a day?

Jenn said...

You can do it!!! I know you can. Busy or not, you'll be able to hit that 1000. And I better be invited to the celebration!! lol. =)

Sweta said...

I'm sure you'll get there long before X-mas-maybe you should be good and ask Santa to help you out!!
BTW,I'll be hounding my mail man for the "invite" to your party-so,I better be on your list!
P.S:have you planned what you are serving??I bet your 194th post will be the menu!!

I have no doubt that you'll make it and make it interesting for your readers too.

Marjie said...

Well, either you double up, and have your party before December, or you slow it down just a wee bit, and give us something to look forward to in the doldrums of January or February! I'm sure it'll be great!

Would you like to use my food rules, like clockwise or counterclockwise swirls in marble cake? LOL

I just patted myself on the back a few weeks ago for passing 100. That pales in your shadow. 8OO? That's nothing short of amazing!! You'll make it - no matter how long it takes - you already have a big achievement! Reminds me of the little engine that could...chugging up the hill, slow and steady.

Holy crap- you are prolific! I find it impossible to work, have fun social activities and write too much, much less cook the way you do! Kudos to you Doggybloggy!Have I told you that my daughter has become addicted to Rachel Ray? Now she wants to be a chef.

Ramya Vijaykumar said...

Sara said...

Congrats on post #806, it sounds like you'll plan something great for 1,000!

Donna-FFW said...

burpandslurp said...

5 Star Foodie said...

Wow, over 800 posts! You can definitely do a 1000 before the end of the year! That would be so perfect!

Pooja said...

Wow you crossed 800!! Amazing..well it wouldnt take much effort to complete 1000 by Dec, say by 3rd week of Dec. Hmm..you need 194 more..so may be one post per day will do! Keep going..and achieve the milestone to have a rocking celebration! I'll be waiting for the invi as well :)

TavoLini said...

Our friend who we have never met...you do know that Tavo and I will be headed towards our favorite hostel in your grand city when you announce your party. And we will bring party favors and some random southern treats.

The Diva on a Diet said...

I've been wondering where you were? Work ... the curse of the drinking class! LOL

Guess you're going to have to double up on the posts ... whatever you do, I want in on the party. I'll even offer to mix the drinks! ;)

Christine aka Mistress of Cakes said...
