1,600 Blog Posts; What A Year!

Posted by on Mar 26, 2015

Goodness, it only seems like it’s been days since I wrote Post #1,500 and yet here we are, post #1,600; wow! Thanks and congrats to me… though this time around there are some differences…


For one, this is the longest it’s taken me to get to 100 posts. My last milestone of this type was last March 14th, so it’s about two weeks past a year. Not that I wasn’t busy though, so I’m not upset.

Second, not all of the posts during this period were brand new. As some of you know, I shut down another blog and business back in December. I brought a lot of those posts over here since the topics were the same. I still have a lot of those posts left to add here so that’s proven to be smart if you ask me.

I spent most of my time talking about the art of blogging… why am I not on more lists about blogging? No matter; I’m working my way there. I added more on social media also but in the past year I talked a lot about the myth of freedom of expression, this belief that people can get away with saying anything they want to without suffering consequences, or at least being willing to suffer consequences if they occur.

Please folks, if you decide to say something that can be perceived as antagonistic or mean spirited towards someone, be willing to take whatever comes from it… unless it involves murder or being physically hurt, which no one supports.

Instead of what I usually do, which involves some research into the Analytics to see what Google says were my most visited posts, I’m just going to share my favorite 16, since it’s 1,600, and leave it at that, without explanation. Take a look or not, comment or not (but please take a look and comment lol), they are what they are; honest, pure and worthy… so says me!

Onward and upward towards the next milestone:

Thanks Raquel; there’s at least 700 articles on this site about blogging so I’d have to agree with you on that one. 🙂 And hopefully many more to come.

March 26th, 2015 | 5:55 PM

Mitch, it boggles my mind how much you write. Unfathomable!

Congrats on this milestone. One day you’ll be able to look back on what you’ve done.

I might be starting another blog soon for another niche. Not sure. Please talk me out of it! 😉

Steve, don’t do it! lol We’ll have to talk, maybe during a walk or another trek for wings. As for the milestone it’s pretty neat, but it’s also time I started doing something with these things… we’ll see what I come up with.

Congratulations on another milestone. What I’m wondering though is when did you grow the beard? Hadn’t seen that before. You look very distinguished and serious.

Arlee, you haven’t kept up. lol Actually, I go back and forth with the beard. When my face gets irritated I let the beard grow until that starts irritating, and then I shave it off again. I use a CPAP, which might help explain the irritations. Thanks for the kudos; more to come.

March 26th, 2015 | 6:01 PM

Congratulations. You ARE prolific. Don\’t be apologetic! I bet that you will hit 1850 before the end of this year if you set your mind to it.

Thanks Rummuser. Actually, I’m not going to even try for it… at least I say that right now 🙂

Quality, not quantity. 🙂 At least that’s what I keep trying to remind myself.

Sometimes you need a lot to find the quality lol

March 27th, 2015 | 3:20 PM

Hey Mitch, you just continue to pump out those milestones don’t you? Congratulations mate.

As for those lists, they’re not easy to get on are they. I’ve often wondered about them myself. Reckon we’re just not famous enough. Never mind, at least we appreciate each others efforts. 😉

Thanks Pete. Yes, we do appreciate each other, but I am working on becoming famous by the end of the year… I might have to go for infamous lol

March 31st, 2015 | 10:41 PM

I’m sure whatever you do to get there will be above board Mitch. Not like that no infamous person who thought to make a name for himself by crashing a plane and killing all those people. What an awful waste.

Yeah, what a major tragedy that was. That airlines is going to pay restitution high enough to put it out of business… 🙁

Hi Mitch,

Congratulations! I just visited one of the above blog posts about free speech and the story you shared there was amazing. I love the way you write. It just pulls you into the entire post. Keep on going! We need you out here!

Thanks for the kudos Donna. I’ll keep putting these things out there and who knows, maybe one day I’ll be a star! 😉

Paul M:

Thats very impressive read somewhere that the secret of blogging is 25% writing & 75% marketing so maybe you need to work on that to get on the lists!! But the site is great really interesting articles thanks

April 1st, 2015 | 4:44 PM

True Paul. Back when I started writing here, marketing/publicity wasn’t talked about all that much. Now I’m doing it and I’m starting to get more attention; we’ll see where that takes me.

April 1st, 2015 | 5:00 PM

Wow.. this is just amazing. 1600 posts is not a simple target, but you did it. Do the same in this year as well and my best wishes to you.

April 2nd, 2015 | 12:18 AM

Oh, that wasn’t in one year, but an accumulation. Wow, if I did that in one year no one would ever read a thing! lol

Before you leave a reply; please see the comment policy if this is your first visit. This blog doesn't accept keyword names. I need a real first name or a legitimate nickname that you're known for. If your name has more than 3 words or the email address begins with "info" or "admin", the comment automatically goes to the spam filter; same if there are any links in the comment or if you don't have a gravatar. If your comment goes to spam for any of these reasons, or any other reason listed in this post, it may never show up on the blog (I do forgive the link issue if you've commented on the blog previously and I'll forgive the gravatar thing for first time visitors). If it goes there for any other reason (and I know some do), I'll pull it out as I don't intentionally moderate any comments on this blog.

One last thing; if your link is an affiliate link or goes back to a strange website or webpage I don't like, if I keep your comment I'll remove your link. That's why I have CommentLuv for blogs; if you have a legitimate business just leave that link & no sub-links. Trust me, it's best to read the comment policy if you don't get it, or never see your comments showing up here.

If you like this post, why not donate to the cause? :-)
