Guess what, oh fellow Pilgrims? This is my 1000th post! Which is shocking to me, since my 800th post was in July. But I have been doing a lot more blogging recently, what with the quotes and the jams and so forth. 16 posts a week, approximately, means I'll be at 2000 posts by the end of next calendar year.
Anyway, rather than post a bunch of random things from around the internets, I thought I would share with you 10 things that I've blogged about that I keep coming back to, and have not fallen out of love with yet.
And, my new favorite song, which I heard live last night at the Weepies concert. Oh my. I love it. Consider it a little present for all of you.
Some blog stats of varying levels of interest:
+ I have used the word "delightful" in 38 posts, and the word "wonderful" in 101 posts.
+ Friends have read my blog on 5 of the 7 continents: North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and...Antarctica. Unfortunately, I don't have any any friends in Australia or South America.
+ My most popular post was this early on called Chicken Scratch, which had a photo embedded of St.Thomas Aquinas' awful handwriting. People visited it only for the photo. I have since taken the photo down.
+ My blog title "Ten Thousand Places" comes from a poem by Gerard Manly Hopkins. Read it here. (I was once compared to the dragonfly in the poem, read the poem, and fell in love.)
