Five Hundred Posts

This post marks my 500th entry in this little corner of the worldwide web, and it's truly been a blast. I'm not much of a writer, I do it mostly to entertain myself... but over the past year and a few months, I've accomplished what I set out to do - have fun.

As I scanned through my archives tonight, I listed a few other things I've done in these pages:

I've insulted, basked, packed, fretted, philosophized, honored, recalled, recognized, marketed, inventoried, recreated, paid tribute, nagged, ragged and finger wagged. I've atoned, I've remembered... I've bitched, moaned, complained... mourned, loved, narrated, promised, preached and praised. I've disclosed, I've listed, listed, listed, listed and listed things about me, and things I've never done. I've waxed poetic, nostalgic, philosophical, and practical.

I gave my pets a voice. (I know what you're thinking, bite me) I appraised, puzzled, pied, and opined.

I've done all of these things since November 2004, here in these pages.

As I searched through my blog to assign these links, I couldn't help but feel like maybe I've said all I have to say. After five hundred posts, I have poured out my heart, recorded my memories, made my opinions known... and now, I'm not sure how much is left.

For now, I will forge ahead. I do have more stories from my past... and with any luck, I will have many new memories to record here.

After five hundred posts, I feel so very glad I found this hobby, and that I have this little corner of the universe where I can share who, what and why I am.

I, too, have a few stories from your past (and yearbook pictures), and I will happily blackmail you with them if you even think about retiring from blogging...

That said, forge right ahead.

500 posts! In 15 months? That's more than 33 each month. You must go "post"al quite frequently ;)

Keep going! See if you can make it to 1000 by May 2007 (no pressure :)

You simply can not go anywhere Dave. You've quickly become one of my favorite blogs to read. I may not comment each and every time, but believe me, I read you every day. :-)

Congrats on the mile stone. I just passed up my year anniversary of posting (some of my earlier posts were backdated from when I actually wrote the material) and I think I have more than one post a day so we are in the same boat. I am not to 500 yet unless you combine all of my blogs, and who wants to do that?

I have too much to ponder and not enough people to share it with in real life...hence everyone gets tortured with my musings...oh well, huh?

Used Hack said...

Congrats on 500, Dave. I delete too many posts to ever get there. :)

CP said...

500 posts of Dave. Dave TV, all day long. Gotta love the Davemeister.

Here's to 500 more, dollbaby!

Five-hundred? You are a prolific blogger, Dave. It seems like I just started reading you.

Spinning Girl said...

Great to see what a kaleidoscope of writing you've done so far. I doubt the well will ever be dry; each day brings new experiences, and you can always dig deeper into your psyche for us. :)

And in the end, of course, it's all about the pie. Mmmmm, pie.

Lee Ann said...

Wow... 500! Congrats, that is awesome.
That is a lot of writing.
Oh, I want to hear you moan! ;)

Heidi said...

Oh please...you're a porche 911 for fuckssakes, you've got plenty to talk about!

Rob Seifert said...

Yikes 500! Congrats! I feel like a slacker...

You have a great blog. I have fun coming here and checking out what's up with you. Sorry I missed some 480+ previous posts, but that's old news, I guess. Keep on keepin' on. You can't stop now!

If you add my Welsh and English blogs, I've racked up 1,116 posts. Complete rubbish all of it. But I like blogging because it means that I can Google search my memory. And then if I don't like the memory it can be edited, which is the advantage it has over relying on my wife to remember everything.

Congrats to the big 500! I lift my glass to the next 500!

Kylee said...

Bob2837465 said...

dammit - - just because you're out of town does NOT give you the right not to take the time to update your blog! get with the program!!! (j/k) (kind of)

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Aw, hell, Dave. I clicked on ONE link and it turned out to be Valentine's Day, 2005. Bummer. Made me sad.

But congratulations chum. That is many pieces indeed. I am about 130 behind.

Good For you, I hope I still like blogging in 15 months, I dont add enough posts to have that many, but we will see.

P.S. Your page has been loading really slow for me last few times I have tried to come on...:( Maybe it is cause you have so many posts...
