1000th Post!

Today is my 1000th post, something I would have never expected to get to so fast, but then I've always been a bit of an old windbag! For the number crunchers amongst you, my average is 2.28 posts per day. So to celebrate, I thought I'd share some of my thoughts and experiences on blogging.

  • A blog is alot cheaper than Counselling!

  • Blogging is another great form of networking

  • Comment, if you want comments

  • Lifes mundane offerings, can be blogging gems

  • If it made you laugh, others probably will too

  • To meet bloggers, you need to visit blogs

  • Write with honesty about what you know

  • Keep a list constantly handy to write blog ideas down

  • Photographs make a long 'wordy' post digestable

  • The majority of bloggers are just nice, normal folk

  • Rise above the few that aren't, they're not worth it

  • Try to come up with a regular fallback feature

  • 'Followers' are very nice, but not what it's all about

  • Always acknowledge sources and give backlinks

  • Join in a group blog event like Skywatch, it's fun

  • If you wouldn't say it face to face, then save it

  • Always carry a camera, pictures can make great posts

  • Have fun, and if you're not, take a break
  • Bloggers: Lifes Orators Giving Great Entertainment Real Style!

    And now onwards with the next 1000!

Congratulations Sarah. That's amazing.

I love your list of comments and ideas. It's great advice.

Thanks for your blog, I love reading about your life and your ideas. As you say what's mundane and everyday to you, is fascinationg to someone else.

I look forward to your next thousand.

Yay for 1000!

I love your blog - except for the horrible pictures you posted the other day of those "s" creatures - you know, the ones that have no legs and slither on the ground!

I was scrolling down through your posts and saw that one and almost had a heart attack - I'm sure it made me pee my pants!

But I still love you Sarah! I'm so glad you started blogging.

SSQuo said...

Congrats! Thats awesome. 2.28 posts a day, thats a lot of writing. I admire you for that.

Very good list, with perfectly sensible advice.

Wendy said...

Congrats on reaching that milestone! I'm sure another 1000 won't take long. Love your blog. It is always a pleasure when I can find time to pop over and see what you've been doing, seeing, saying, etc.

I agree about your fallback feature (especially loved your purse one). In case, it sounded like I have a negative opinion of those, my hesitation is merely with those ones where everyone copies the link and then leaves a long list of people/bloggers who participated. Those seem like such a lot of work. Then again, maybe I'll try jumping on that bandwagon once my little guys are in school full-time and I find more time for blogging.
