five hundredth post

I don’t have any New Arrivals for you, but this is what’s blowing my mind:

This is the 5ooth post for this blog. It’s incredible to me that I can have done so many since I started. Sure, other bloggers do something every day and rack up much greater numbers in shorter time, but still, five hundred posts in 28 months, the first one was on August 28th, 2009 when I began this blog is a lot.

During those 28 months, we’ve moved from southern California to Portland, Oregon, gotten settled, had major landscaping work done, made new friends and re-established with old ones and Wife has retired. That doesn’t seem like much but it’s feels like it’s been an eventful time, and this blog has been an important part of it.

I’ve especially enjoyed doing the Friday Forgotten Books posts, thanks to Patti Abbott, the book reviews, and sharing our progress here with the move, unpacking, getting the book shelves built, the outside work. Hopefully there’ll be lots more to share in the future, in the next five hundred posts.

    Isn’t it wonderful seeing how far your blog has come in what feels like a short time? Stats like this, especially 500 posts, holy cow, are bragworthy!

    I think it took Crider a week to reach that milestone. It’ll take me 10 years. Congrats.

    Remarkable (as it were) how it marks the time, isn’t it? Congratulations!

    Thanks, everyone. I’ll keep at it, will try to get those posts that were promised, such as the landscaping before and after, and some other book reviews, and so forth, out sooner rather than later.

    I expect a goodly sized New Arrivals post after Christmas, but since Monday is the day after, it will probably come a day or two late, and will include non-book items as is my habit.

    500 is a nice round number. Congrats on the achievement!

    (Now, personally, if I could find shelf room for 500 more pulps or 500 more books I would be doing really good.)
