I’ve hit a century of posts!
100 not out. A bit of a cricketing term there, I am sorry for the non-sport fans.
Above is an actual picture of me from a hundred years ago. I called myself W.G. Grace back then and wear my beard more fashionably trimmed these days.
Before my delusions take control, what else has 100?
The Centipede’s supposed to have a hundred legs. They can have as few as 20 or as many as 300 legs, apparently. Imagine shoe shopping with one of those on the weekend:
“Can I try another left shoe for foot 84. Feels tight.”
At 100 years of age in GB’land you receive a letter from the Queen. Yes, a personalised message inside a card from The QUEEN! When casually discussing your 100th birthday at the salad bar (hardly likely to celebrate 100 in a burger bar are you!) you can say,
“Aunt Aida forgot my birthday, again, but The Queen sent me a card.”
You also get a card on your 60th wedding anniversary. Before you ask. They don’t know and send you a card. You contact the proper people at the palace and they make the arrangements. You could probably Tweet The Queen as a heads up. Maybe, I don’t know for sure 😉
I’m just full of information today. Well, full of something. Ahem, anyway.
The stats gurus at WordPress now provide you with little Awards so you know when you’ve beaten previous milestones.
In my 100 posts, I’ve somehow managed to bribe you all into hitting my posts over 10,000 times; including my responses, there have been over 2,000 comments; you’ve clicked that little like button over a 1,000 times and 389 of you are insane enough to follow my blog.
My 100th post comes 532 days after the first one, so approximately a post every 5 days. Happy with that. Not too many, not too few.
When my first post went live, I never dreamt of reaching 100 hits, let alone this number of posts.
Thank you for your comments and consistent support. I’ve had a blast over the last 18 months, met some great people and learnt many, many things that will help improve my writing. I’ve also downloaded several books that I only know about through blogland.
Here’s to the next 100!
So, does The Queen click like on this post or does she leave a comment??
