1000th Post!!! Let’s Celebrate!!!!!

Can you believe it??? I certainly can’t !!! My 1000th post!!!   Woo hoo!!!!   And that means a celebration!!!!

When I started this blog way back in March 2008 it was just to chronicle our travel and our eventual move to Australia for the family and close friends.  What I did not know was that it would suck me in.  I would soon become addicted  passionate to write posts!   I have always dabbled in writing and while I know that I am not a real writer this has given me an opportunity to get some of that stifled creativity out of my body!!!   Well…maybe.  You might disagree with me as you read some of my archived posts!!!  🙂

So over these 3 + years some of you have stuck with me through moves, (lots of moves for my family!), birthdays, weddings, and life changes.  You have shared my love of Buddy and Holly, the death of Smiley, my love of making cards, my venture into Comments for a Cause, and of course my Tuesday offerings of pictures of my massive teapot collection!

I have met many new bloggy friends and have loved it.  If you want to know who some of my favorites are check out my Blogroll and you will see !   I have found friends near and far and reconnected with some friends from the past !   The internet is an amazing thing.  I love it!!!!

So celebrate with me and any comment today will go not only towards the Comments for a Cause for the month BUT I will be sending a prize package to a randomly selected winner!!!  No details  on what will be in that surprise giveaway but let’s just say—it will be well worth your time spent leaving a comment!!!  Love you all and comment away.  If you have a favorite post of mine over the years let me know what it is!!!


  1. Oh My God… 1000 posts.. wow… that is amazing! Congrats! Isn’t it amazing how blogging sucks you in and you get so addicted to it? I feel the same way you do, especially when I think of all the cool friends I have met…

  2. Congratulations! 1000! As Gretchen Rubin says, The days are long, but the years are short! Keep up the good work.

    Happy 1000th blog Beth Ann!!!! I can’t believe you’ve been blogging since 2008! That’s an amazing feat 🙂 You definitely have a gift of writing and you are such a positive, spiritual person…I’m so glad to have you as my friend. Happy Blogging!

    • Thanks, Amy!! It has been so much fun!!! And I have reconnected with a lot of people and found a ton of new friends!!! Yay!!! I am grateful for your friendship, my friend!!! Hope to make it to NC sometime but not sure when to see you and Dave!

  4. Congratulations. My post today 1 year old(290 posts) so I do know how you feel. I have met so many delightful people that I hope will be part of my life for many years to come.

    • Thanks, Carl, for the kind words and well wishes!!! I was talking to our son last night and he was telling me that he had been telling his coworkers that I needed to come talk to them about blogging because I get more traffic and comments than they do on their blogs and they are supposedly social media folks! I think it is because I am not writing about “boring” technical stuff !!! LOL Thanks for stopping by to help me celebrate!!! Do you have that song stuck in your head now??? Gotta love Kool and the Gang!

  5. Congratulation Beth 🙂

    You are ahead of me, I am still in 900something (not counting my turtle’s blog)…and I have been blogging since 2005 (tho not very active back then)…congratulation once again from all three of us 🙂

    I love your tea pot post…they are all unique.

    • Thanks so much! I was telling someone the other day that I followed a turtle blog and they looked at me like I had lost it!!! 🙂 But I love your turtles and you are such a great photographer–could it be because they are such great subjects??? Thanks for the comment and keep on posting!!! 🙂

      • Hahaha…I know very well that look!! I have seen that look every time I mentioned that my turtles have a blog and twitter account 😉

  6. 1000! Wow!! Congratulations, Beth Ann!! I love all your posts. And let me share something with you I read once and I quote “If you write, you are a writer.” and that you are, my friend. So glad we found one another. Love you!

    • Okay okay–I am a writer!! Woo hoo!!!! Affirmation from one of my BBB’s (best blogging buddies) !!!!!! Thanks for the support and the comments!!!

  7. Congratulations! Huge accomplishment from where I’m sitting. I just started January 21 of this year. I’ve got a ways to go to hit 1000. Will I make it? I wonder.

    • Thanks!!! I bet you will make it!!! I have had fun and it helps to have a creative outlet sometimes even if what I post is not always creative in the common way—at least it helps me to express myself!!!

  8. Congrats on your 1000 post!!! Wow oh wow!!! I look forward ti celebrate many more post from you. Your post made my day!! Thanks for keep writting!

  9. Congraulations! A heck of a mile stone. I’m so glad you started blogging and we are friends. Your comments and notes always make my day. You have to be one of the best cheerleaders around. I hope to have some updates on my blog next week when I get home. Yea, you!
    You are the first blog I have actually commented on since going on vacation!!

  10. Thanks for stopping by the past week!! Let me start by saying congrats on your 1000th post! I am glad you continued to blog and became addicted, as your posts are wonderful to read 🙂

    P.S. I just noticed that you donating 50cent per comment to the National Down Syndrome society! LOOOOOVE that – what a great thing to do!
