1500: Now That’s A Number I Like

16 Jan

This is my 1501st post.  Number 1500 was this morning’s joke.

I started writing this 542 posts ago for my 1000th post because I wanted to give you something special for my 1000th post, but I forgot to finish it.

I thought I’d make it my shortest post as a reward for your tolerance but my shortest post has already been done: you can’t get shorter than no words at all.

I did consider making it my longest post but I want you to stick around for the 2000th, so consider yourselves escaping narrowly.

So, this is my 1501st post…or is it?  According to the patronising WordPress sticker chart that appears each time I publish (Well done!  You have reached your target of 1500 posts.  Your next target is 1505), it is.  But, according to my list of posts, I have published only 1494, and scheduled six.

Look out for a re-blog of this in three days’ time.  Or my foot through the WordPress logo.

    In honour of your (sort-of) achievement:

    There once was a blogger who laughed
    till one day on a post she gaffed
    “oh, with these prompts!”
    on WordPress she stomped
    “It’s a least the 1500 post… and a half!”

    Nothing like doing a happy dance. 😀

    BTW: You can change the date on this and it will move to its rightful place in your post queue.

    Tilly, not meaning to alarm you, but I’m sure that I read this post on March 10th 2011. Are you sure that it is your head that’s being messed with?


  18. laurieanichols January 16, 2012 at 22:02 #

    I think that the folks at Word Press have caught on to you and are playing with the numbers to drive you nuts. It is naughty of them not keeping the stats properly. You’ll find a way to get the last laugh.

    WordPress is never satisfied, is it? Dianne

    “Or you can tell me to give up blogging if I want to save my sanity.” Honey, that horse was out of the barn a long time ago. . .
