Today I've reached post number

What a strange week it's been, to think it was only last Wednesday that I was celebrating my 3rd Blogoversary and now here I am announcing my 1000th post.

Strange and somewhat revealing, a bit like looking back at old diaries or school assignments, I was amazed to re-read some of my old posts like this, MY FIRST EVER POST, or this, MY FIRST BOOK REVIEW, and see how much my style had developed.

Anyway, enough of me and onto a poem that just about sums up how I feel about you my blogger buddies.

We’ve never really met
I’ve never seen your face
Though I consider you a friend
The best in cyberspace

Somehow we clicked
with more than just a mouse
We have talks over coffee
without leaving the house.
- author unknown

My thanks to you all and here's to the next 1000th post.

Hello Petty,

What a grand achievement in three years. Fabulous. I have already met one blog friends. I am also sure you will some. Some faces we have seen in the photo they put up in their blogs. Some faces we have not seen because they want to be anonymous. But even then we know them quite well from what they write.

My hearty congratulations to you on this wonderful achievement. I really don't know when I will reach even one hundred mark. But then I plod on slowly and surely, hesitating every now then and taking my own time.

Wish you all the best,

Hi T, That is indeed pretty wonderful achievement in three years!

I read your first post now. And I must say it was modest and frank little write up.

Keep going. Your are fortunate to have a encouraging partner with you( your husband). Good luck to you both and keep writing, well reading too.

Perhaps you must be one of the most vociferous devourer of books. Back in India in my home town , lived an erudite professor , the late Krishanan Nair who may be ahead of you by a few books.

Wow!! I'm still not there … I'm creeping up to 1000 but I'm still in the low 900s so I'm impressed. I guess I don't post that often!!! : )

Itsn't it fun to see your early stuff? Mine cracks me up and horrifies me at the same time.

Considering that three years ago you were still a complete luddite refusing to even touch a computer, I have to confess that I am impressed and in awe of your work here...but then, I didn't doubt your ability. Congratulations my beloved on both anniversaries.

Certainly is feat hard to achieve specially like me who just re-started blogging not 2 months ago.
