3000th Post

Been around since '08.  Three thousand is not all...I deleted many when reviewing old posts, thinking they didn't matter. I should say three thousand after my various bouts of self-editing.

I've learned much, like not to keep resetting your counter. I have no idea how many have visited. Kept changing the style and would start over at one.

I've learned by trial and error and some help from good people along the way. I'm still learning.

You have celebrated with me, encouraged me, supported me, prayed for and with me. We have laughed and even cried together...and I keep writing.  And you keep reading.
Some people ask, Why do you write?  I don't know but I keep on  writing.  We'll see how long that lasts.  Couldn't have done it without y'all.  Thank you.

WOW you talk a lot:):) I am kidding you know that your sense of humour is one of the reasons I keep coming back.. Congratulations and Thank you, your poems and stories have had me laugh, had me cry and your stories have inspired me since I found you my first year and that was 2010. Oh I have an idea why you write because you are a writer and that is what we do because we have to. Many more posts ahead I believe. HUGS HUGS B

Congratulations! Wow, I started a year later and I haven't even hit a thousand yet.
Don't worry about the stat counter. They are inaccurate anyway. Go to you dashboard and look up the stats there.

Yay for you! You are over 3000 posts old! LOL! I just checked mine and I'm at 2295 posts. So still a few years to go, you'll be at 4000 by then. You wonder why people come back? Because we care! And you have become a part of our lives. You are appreciated!!

My goodness! That's a lot of posts...a lot of writing...a lot of thoughts! Congratulations! :)

Keep on going on, Gail! :)

Congrats dear friend :-)

kaykuala said...

Congrats Gail! Difficult to keep pace with you. Somehow I've learnt not to delete as it will be gone forever. It can be revamped later if still available. I've deleted 2 and regretted it. Now what I do I just put it under draft. It is still there. One can revamp or improve on them at leisure later no hurry even after a few years. Just saying!

Congratulations - Wow 3000 that is impressive :)

Josie Two Shoes said...

That's an amazing amount of awesome writing and sharing, and growing in the process! I suspect that one of the reasons you write is the same as it is for me, writing is one way we manage to hold on to the thread of sanity that we grasp tenuously! :-)) Congrats on reaching 3000 posts, it is an honor and a pleasure to know you and call you a friend!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Gail, I love the way you think, and I feel strongly that you are a kindred spirit, a soul sister. Perhaps you are braver than I, as I hold back more. I am trying to learn to share my writing more. I tend to edit a lot. And file it to think on it. *sigh* I have much to learn, Master. I am still a Grasshopper. HUGS.
