Over 900 and Counting

I have been blogging since September 2009, obviously not for the fame, but because I am making my little mark upon that vast sea of information that is the internet. 

Like many of you, I didn't grow up in the information age. I was well into my twenties before I got my first computer, and for about 15 years I made my living with computers and technology.

It was 2011 before I got my first smart phone and only recently replaced it. Nope, I've never been one to jump on the high-tech band wagon, but I am getting off topic. 

I enjoy blogging, and it is especially rewarding when I read that my words have touched someone, encouraged someone, made them smile or even laugh out loud, or in today's speak...lol.

When I first started out, I frequently checked my stats was either elated or deflated depending on the number of visitors and/or comments I received. Evidently I have become complacent over the years and only last week realized that I had passed the 900 mark. No fan fare, no hoopla, nothing...just click publish and done.

That I have published over 900 posts in about six and a half years must say that I like to see myself in print. Hey, that's better than 900 pictures of yours truly!  Anyway, I hope you'll keep coming around 'cause I'm not done yet.

The Quote of the Week will return next week.

  1. Congrats on keeping with your blog going for 900 posts. I am sure that most bloggers don't get any where close to that. It is all of our good fortunes to have the opportunity to enjoy your posts and hopefully, will have many more in the future as well. I am sure you have touched many people with your words. You always give me a little "take-away" to think about as I go through my day.

    Way to go, Linda!! That is an awesome milestone.

    1. Hilary, we do indeed learn a lot...about people and places, and ultimately ourselves.

  4. You know what? I haven't checked stats in years! Of course it seems facebook has taken over blogging... I don't know how I had the time to do as much as I did! But I am still hanging in there and enjoying the writing, as are you. Congratulations!

  5. Congrats on the milestone! :)

    You mentioning this made me realize I had a big milestone, too -- one I had planned to hit last year and I hit in January without even realizing. Oh well, guess I'll have to blog about it now. :)
