500 posts (or is it?)

Time to celebrate my…

500th blog post

500 blog posts does seems a lot, but the thing is, I used to blog on blogger (my first post was 15 October 2008) – I closed it when I created this little corner of cyberspace (24 March 2017). If I include those posts I am at 1013.

What is interesting is that in the first 8.5 years on blogger I wrote 513 posts, but in the last 3 years here I’ve written 500. I’m not sure what has made me write more – maybe because I love my little website.

What do you think…should I celebrate my website blog anniversaries, or combine them with my old blog? I’d love your perspective!

  1. Congratulations on your blogoversary, wherever you celebrate it! As you know, Iโ€™m still on Blogger. I find it a lot easier to navigate than WordPress. I did have a go at WordPress and gave up!

    • Thanks, Sue. It did take me a while to get used to WordPress, but I’m used to it now.

  2. Celebrate them both. Theyโ€™re both amazing milestones. ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ‰

    • I should, shouldn’t I? I missed the 500th post on blogger – I didn’t know I had passed it until I stopped blogging there. Thanks, lovely.

  3. Congratulations, AJ!
    I think they all count. Iโ€™ve moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress. Iโ€™ve also renamed it several times. Iโ€™ve imported those older blogs and posts into my current blog, for the most part successfully (I lost some pictures).
    However you want to count it and celebrate is up to you.
    I promise not to tell the Blogging Police ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜.


    • Thanks, Deb. I like to think they all count too, but I’m glad the blogging police won’t know ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Woohoo! 500 posts!! Awesome! I say celebrate EVERYTHING. Anything you want to celebrate, you celebrate!

    • It’s funny, but when I realised the counter on wordpress was just about at 500 I didn’t even think about my blogger posts until I was writing this. I could have had 2 celebrations – 100 total and 500 for this one. Dang it, I missed a celebration!

  5. Congratulations on 500 posts here and 513 on Blogger! Have you ever merged (or considered merging) the Blogger posts in with WordPress? Just curious.

    I’m in my 9th year and rapidly approaching 4000…

    • Oh my gosh, John! I have been blogging for nearly 12 years and I am only at a quarter of your posts. That’s an impressive number.

      And no, I haven’t merged and hadn’t considered merging my Blogger posts into WordPress because I hadn’t realised you could. Maybe one day I will, but the last thing I want to do is to break WordPress (I did that once and it was an awful and costly experience).

  6. Congrats. I say celebrate any time you have the opportunity to do so.

    • Maybe I should have had cake to celebrate? I am always looking for a reason to have cake ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Yay, AJ! Amazing.

  8. Congratulations! You are entitled to celebrate any and all blogging milestones! I’m always happy to visit your corner of cyberspace ๐Ÿ™‚
