1000 posts


Who would have thought that this little ol' blog of mine would reach 1000 posts? This little blog o' mine - I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine! I remember when I wrote my first posts and then my first few posts after that and quite frankly it was no different than hollering in a well. So many new bloggers out there have been able to jump right into the fray with little to no knowledge of what it was like 5 years ago when most people might have heard of blogs but that was as far as it went. The blog world has grown exponentially and in fact some people say it is the reason for many a magazines demise. I like it and I will keep on keeping on. I am so happy with all the wonderful people I have met as a result of blogging and I am happy for all the things it has taught me. I love to learn and I probably learn way more than one new thing everyday and its all because of blogs. In the most honest way I am glad to have reached this milestone but I am also glad that it is now OVER and I dont have to fret about it until the next 1000 comes up.

I have many more tricks up my sleeves and if you want to know a reason to wear big puffy sleeves then there is no better reason than places to keep tricks.

Congratulations on your big day!Have you ever put a search for a word on your own blog, and found a post you had no recollection of writing? It's exciting, try it!
Don't you find that it's a bit relieving to finally get there, tomorrow it will be a new and fresh beginning! Good thing that you are a blogger with big sleeves!

Congrats on this awesome HUGE milestone!!! How exciting for you :)

Congrats! I agree it is the demise of some magazines. I think it's important though that we realize the difference between fact and opinion when it comes to news. Too many times a person's opinion is passed along as the truth, when it's not. Cooking, not so much, but it's still there a little. We don't totally want to do away with real information for all blogs. Good luck for the next 1000.

Awesome! Yes, I am one of those who jumped right into the fray without the knowledge of what it was like 5 years ago. I wish I would have started then.

I can complete relate to the "hollering in a well" phrase. You have survived and prevailed. Bravo. A great accomplishment. Congratulations and enjoy your day in the sun.

Congratulations...that's a very impressive number! Glad to hear that you plan to keep on keeping on!

P.S. Love your snowman and your-build-your-own tree tradition.

Happy holidays to you and yours.

Woot woot! Congratulations on 5 years and 1000 posts! That's utterly amazing when someone keeps on entertaining us and wowing us as you do after so much time. We all hope that you keep on blogging!

And do you realize that you were the very first person to leave a comment on my blog? The world of food blogging and the links it has created never cease to amaze me!

And how!! Thank you, so much, for being one of my first readers--and encouraging all of us. You have come a long way in the few years I've been reading your blog, Christo. Cheers to many more!
