What have you done at least 1000x? Things besides waking up every day, driving, going to the grocery store, or going to work.
I have written in my journals over 1000x, have sent out over 1000 emails, texts and things by snail mail. Have given/received 1000 plus hugs, had way over 1000 chats with friends and shared well over 1000 meals with friends and family. Have listened to over 1000 songs and the list goes on.
Last week I was notified by WordPress that I have shared 1000 posts! I know many of you have passed that number and for the ones that haven’t, keep going, you will get there! I really wasn’t keeping track of my number of posts, so it did shock me some when the little notification came up for me.
When I started blogging I didn’t even know if I would do more than 2 posts! Didn’t know how it would go, but day by day, week by week, month by month the posts added up and here I am! 1000 posts and smiling!
I started blogging on an impulse to be honest. I really didn’t think about it much, just thought hey, this could be fun, why not give it a try. As a lot of my friends and my family know, I can be an impulsive person. Sometimes the results of my impulsiveness aren’t always in my favor. Okay maybe a little more than sometimes. They may result in me “smacking my head”! Is there anyone out there that can relate?
Fortunately my impulsive decision to start blogging has had wonderful results!! The pushing of buttons has resulted in over 1000 posts. Posts that have hopefully brought joy, hope, and laughter to your hearts. As well as times of serious thoughts and perhaps even some tears.
The 1000 posts have helped to result in “The Odessa Chronicles” coming out in 2018! A book of stories for all ages, that Colin and I have written. A book that all started because of one impulsive post about a clever, mischievous cat named Dewey. Oh how the stories went on to grow from there, with Colin working his magic with the characters.
Thank you all for helping my impulsive decision to blog turn out to be a very good thing! For if it wasn’t for your faithful reading and your comments, I wouldn’t have made it anywhere close to 1000 posts. Its been a great adventure that I plan on continuing! If only all my impulsive decisions could turn out this well!
