Laws of Gravity 3000

According to the counter in the top left-hand corner of the Blogger page, this is post number 3000. I'm glad I was kind of paying attention, or else I might have missed it. I mean, I missed number 2000, I'm pretty sure. 

My first post here was September 14, 2007. Appropriately enough, I titled it "Newbie". And in it I explain that this is my second blog. My first blog, kept on MySpace, has since gone poof. I deleted it years ago, but not before backing up all the posts. (Some were reposted here, mostly during the summer months. Everything of "importance" eventually made the transition.) 

I just. . . How does one start something and keep it going? I guess I'm just that kind of person. I start something, and then I keep it going. 

In case you were wondering, not much has changed over the years. Early on, I was writing about my subbing experiences, much like I do now. I even explained the title of my blog in those first couple weeks. (Although, that's also included in the "About Me" tab above.) 

So, I'll keep on keeping on. As I do. This week I'll again have a "what if?" on Tuesday. Even in our pandemic, closed schools time, I continue to work, so there are subbing stories for Wednesday through Friday. 

And I'm still working on the entrelac scarf. I made a little bit of progress last week: 

How are you doing? What number blog post are you currently on?

  3. I remember MySpace. It was really popular there for like five minutes. My first blogging experience was on LiveJournal (shudder). The scarf is getting big! It's almost a blanket.

  6. Congratulations, Liz! That's an accomplishment. I didn't start my blog until 2009. And I don't have a clue how many blog posts I have total, but the most I had in one year was 86 posts in 2011. It's a lot less than that now! That's a beautiful scarf.

  9. Hi Liz - well done on the 3,000 posts ... I'm doing well enough ... but only about 1/3+ of your 3,000. Also I don't knit - the scarf is looking very special ... stay safe - Hilary

  12. That's huge! Congratulations. I started blogging in late 2009 and am at about 1200 posts (split over my old blogger page and website). It's not easy writing posts everyday.

    And the scarf is huge, but still looking lovely.
