My 1,000 Post

Today marks my one thousandth post in this blog. I am shocked and amazed that it has arrived this quickly. I started this blog for our gallery in 2010, and posted sporadically. When I had a thought I posted. It wasn’t regular nor profound, simply something to do when the thought struck me. A couple years ago I decided I wanted to blog more, have more of an online presence, and maybe find out what I had to say. I had no idea if anyone would listen, or read, or even comment. So I began writing a post everyday. Some days I knew exactly what I would say and other days came up empty.  The strange part is that my most read posts aren’t always my favorites or the ones I think people will read. Goes to show you that you never know what will strike a cord with people and what will make them think. 

There are months where I have written ahead in order to not miss a day. When I travel I try to make sure I am ahead in case technology does not work where I am going…technology is not always my friend. There are pictures I took years ago that just now end up in a post. There are funny things I see that I know will end up in a post tomorrow. I am always on the look out for the unusual, the funny, the inventive, and the things that make me think. I hope as my readers you enjoy that about my blog and will continue to keep reading. 

Thank you for your support and encouragement. I read every comment and appreciate every word you share. Thank you for reading, for ‘liking’ for sharing and tweeting out my thoughts and ideas. I am an old dog who had to learn this new trick called blogging. I wasn’t sure if I had anything to say, yet I found out that I did and people are reading. I was at a business lunch the other day and someone commented on my blog, told me they read it every day and appreciated my positivity (their word). I had no idea they read it and we talked for a bit about blogging. 

I have learned that we all have a voice if we choose to exercise it. We all have something to say that people need to hear, especially if it makes them think about how to be a better version of themselves. So I will keep posting, please keep reading, enjoying the thinking.

  1. Ha! I read your blog quite a bit and often find myself wondering how you continually find something to write about. Love hearing how this just naturally evolved. Congratulations on your 1000th post. I’m not sure if I’ve even said that many words in my 41 years on this planet 😀
