Hard to believe it, but this is the 2000th post on this blog.
Now, that isn’t 2000 consecutive days (I’m at 1,662 days), but it is a total of 2,000 separate posts that I’ve made, some of them even before I started this non-stop run attempt. It really isn’t that large of an accomplishment compared to most big blogs, some that can do that many posts a month, but when you are the lone writer on a blog, I think it’s worth some form of acknowledgement.
So I thought I would do a quick walk down memory lane of a few of my favorite posts.
No clue why, but I really liked doing this post, and people seem to like it also as it continues to get new visitors every day. It was just kind of nice to discuss something that has been a part of pop culture for so long, and is something just about every one has some sort of an opinion on. I don’t think any two commenters had the exact same order of which actor played the role the best, but that was half the fun.
It’s nice to do something on here once in awhile that actually feels like it might open someone’s eyes to the things going on in the world around them. If I can ever get even one person questioning the motivations of the Church of Scientology, then I’ll feel like I’ve accomplished something.
I know, I’m cheating by just listing a group of posts, but it’s my blog, and I can if I want!
A lot of friends have asked me privately if there is something in my past that causes me to write about the teacher sex scandals, as in have I ever been sexually assaulted by a teacher. I can tell you without hesitation that absolutely nothing like what these teachers have done has ever happened to me. I simply write about these stories because I have known a great number of teachers in my life, and in general I just find it disgusting that any teacher would betray the trust of the student, their family and the community. So, if they do it, they should be talked about.
I have actually pondered spinning those stories off into their own blog, but that is something I am weighing the pros and cons of at the moment.
For all of the negative things I write about on this site, it is nice sometimes to write about a positive, uplifting story. Susan Boyle was definitely one of those stories, and kudos to her. And, yes, I did actually spin stories about her off into their own blog at SusanBoyleFandom.com which I am still updating with various tidbits about her and her upcoming album entitled “I Dreamed A Dream”.
I know my favorites seemed heavy on recent posts, but that is partially because I think I am finally finding my voice as a blogger. One would certainly hope I have after this many posts!
I am excited about the future, and have no intentions of stopping blogging any time soon, so here is to 2,000 more posts of my rambling!
