1,500 (or so) posts!

Here's a bit of random news for all of you: This blog crossed the 1,500-post threshold back on Dec. 13. Woo hoo!

I intended to mention this achievement shortly after it happened, but I lost track of it due to the impending holidays and our similarly impending trip back to my hometown of McFarland, Wisconsin.


I think I'll celebrate tonight by having an extra glass (or maybe two) of wine for dinner. Or maybe I'll celebrate by buying a game I've been lusting after for a while. Or maybe I'll do both of those things.

Anyway, thank you all for visiting and commenting on this blog. Without you, I likely would have given up on it long ago!

1500+ posts?! Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing 1500+ more! :D

Thanks, Kimimi! I'm glad to hear you're on board for 1,500 more. Hopefully I am, too :P

1500! Congrats! When I first started reading your blog earlier in the year, I started working backwards to your earlier entries. 1500 will take a while! But it's all great stuff!

Thanks, Darwin! I can't imagine wading through my earlier posts. It's nice to hear you like the blog well enough to give it a go, though :)

Bryan, I have no problem admitting that your blog is my favorite of all the blogs I've ever read. No lie, no hyperbole. I'm glad you've been around for 1,500! Here's to at LEAST 1,500 more!

You should celebrate by sharing your 3DS friend code with us. Mine looks like this:

Thanks, Justin -- I really appreciate your help in making this blog what it is today. Can't you believe you were the first follower? Not just that, you were the only follower for a VERY long time. So, really, I should have thanked you personally in this post.

Anyway, I'm glad to hear you enjoy my blatherings :P I'll certainly do my best to stick around for 1,500 more posts.

As for sharing my 3DS friend code: I'm actually working on a post about that now. It'll be up in a few hours, OK? Also, I'll share my friend code in a permanent post along the side of the blog shortly after that, I think.

Thanks again for everything!

Congratulations on a massive achievement.

I was happy just to reach 50 posts, nevermind 1500.

Thanks, dste! As for being happy to reach 50 posts: I think you should be. Keep up the great work :)

The pleasure was all mine.

Bryan Ochalla said...

OK, then. Maybe we should call it a wash? :)

Congrats! Yours is one of the very few personal blogs I read anymore.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Thanks, coolpowers! I'm glad this blog has been interesting enough to capture and keep your attention :)

Congratulations my hyper-blogging friend! :) You post so frequently it's sometimes hard to keep up (in a good way!) but the posts are always interesting and enjoyable to read to keep up the good work! :)

Thank you, Simon! You know what's funny? I'm actually writing up a post right now that asks all of you if I post too frequently. I pretty much never post more than two posts a day anymore, but sometimes I wonder if even that is too many. As such, I may pull back to just one a day--like when I publish a big/long post. Anyway, thanks for your readership. You keep up the good work, too!
