♪Celebrate Good Times♪ Come On!♪

Kool & the Gang Approve this Message

I was reading Another Blogger’s Post and he mentioned he had hit the 1000 post mark. He threw it out as a little one liner instead of making a big deal about it but numbers like that are really worth celebrating. It got me wondering how many posts I currently have on wordpress. With writing as much as I do currently, and a big back catalog of reviews (that I am ALMOST finished with by the way! Another reason to celebrate), I haven’t even tried to keep track. Thankfully, wordpress has kept track of that data for me.

While I am not a tv, I am a blogger with 4000 posts under my belt. I must admit to scamming the system and posting some old reviews so this post would be number 4000 at the time it is published. But oh yeah, it feels good! So celebrate with me!

If you have just recently started following you, you might feel this post is chock full of braggadocio, possibly arrogant and completely egotistical. If you’ve been following for some time, you’ll know it IS all that. You’ll also know that I’ve been doing this since 2000 on one platform or another, so forgive me as I toot my own horn for one post (ok, you got me. I am always tooting my own horn. But we can all pretend I’m usually humble and self-effacing, can’t we? I know I can).

Milestones are important. Whether it is getting tagged for some blog award, or noting how long you’ve been blogging, or reaching a number of posts or having reviewed a certain number of books/movies, big fat round numbers are easy to remember and help encourage you when the blogging journey gets rough.

So rejoice with me and think about what you might be able to rejoice about yourself. I’d love to celebrate some good things with any of you all.

  1. According to WordPress, I am up to 674 posts at Every Day Should Be Tuesday. At the pace I am going these days, it will take me a while to get to 1,000 (although I’ve published another 254 posts at Hillbilly Highways).

        1. Depending on how much time you have for the blog, putting up old reviews can re-invigorate your blog. Whether you do them as new posts or backdate them so they don’t show up in the feed, it keeps the activity up for places like google and other search sites.
          Unless you’re perfectly content with where your blog is at, then it might just be a hunk of work that you don’t want to deal with 😀

    1. Well, be sure to let us know when you hit 1K
      We’ll dance along with you 😀

      Do you have any back reviews you could post? That is the main reason my numbers are where they are at is because of keeping track of books since 2000.

                1. It is a big project. For me, one that I’ve been working on since 2016. Which is why I make such a big deal every time I finish up a year, hence those 200X Year is Done posts 😀

                  I do backdate them. That way the only people who get notified are the poor saps who have selected to be notified by email of new posts. Never shows up in the reader 😀

                  to be honest, it is more about having easy access to link to all the books I’ve read over the years than anything. And bragging rights of course 😉

    1. Thanks Ola 🙂
      Sadly, with my old book reviews project closing in on the end (I’m hoping to be done sometime in ’22), I won’t be able to pump those numbers like i have been. However, with my writing output staying relatively steady at 5-7 posts a week, that number will go up quite steadily.
      I’m pretty happy with that!

    1. Thank you.
      Numbers help me enjoy blogging.
      Of course, you’ve seen enough posts to know that I also do a lot of whining about those same exact numbers. So I guess it’s a real mixed bag, hahahahaa 🙂

    1. Thanks HC. It was rather a proud moment when I realized what a big number it was 😀

      If you ever do get the comment thing figured out on your site, let me know. I’d love to get back to commenting on a regular basis.
