As I posted my last post I realised it was the 600th post. Woo-woooooo! I don’t know if this includes posts in draft, or published posts – I suspect the former. Regardless of this it’s an achievement. Regular readers of my blog know that I hardly do any small posts – they’re usually reasonably substantial in content and therefore take a bit of time to compose. What I’m trying to say is that 600 posts (how many times shall I say it?) is quite an achievement don’t you think?
In other news, after I got back from Melbourne on the weekend I checked my emails and blog and noticed that I’d been awarded a Thoughtful blogger award from Jeanie in Paradise. This is a lovely thought on Jeanie’s part to give me. She also recently received this award and deservedly so because she gave me tips (albeit unknowingly) on being a thoughtful blogger by finding me, continually commenting and making me feel special.
It’s only this year that I have become more of a thoughtful blogger. I used to be lucky to get a comment at all on any of my posts – thanks Joy and more recently Jeanie. I then decided that I needed to get out and network and socialise and leave more comments on my travels. This has paid dividends in visitors, subscribers and commenters to my blog. But I also try to make my visitors feel welcome.
I’ve extended the deadline for the offer for one person a chance at getting a new webblog banner.
