I recently noticed that I am sneaking up on both my 1000th blog post... and should be hitting the 800,000 point mark here on Active Rain in about three weeks.
So... I just wanted to say "Thank You !" to all of you who... week after week... read my blog posts... comment on them... share your thoughts... and join in "our conversations" and our "dialogues.
Perhaps about half of my posts have been "real-estate-related." I think I must be getting old... because I have been finding, though, that as time goes on... that I seem to be writing more and more about personal issues, family situations, and other things not very related to "real estate." So... this "real estate blog" has also become more of a personal journal of sorts.
There are a few blogging "purists"... very few of them, luckily, who kind of jump over that personal stuff... but everyone's different, and so are their tastes in what appeals to them. I think that applies to all of us. So... an additional "thank you" to those of you who continue to share my "personal journaling." You have no idea how much it means to me.
Also... quite often, my nine years of teaching experience grabs hold of my little typing fingers... and I end up writing some tutorial posts in response to questions that have been asked of me. As time wears on... these tutorials have ended up being about a quarter of my posts. Yeah... there really is no such thing as a "former" teacher.
Some others of my posts have been either mildly political or even pointedly political. Sometimes I even get into the areas of religion, spirituality, and even an occasional stab at Psychology. Yes... that "Nice Catholic Girl from Cleveland" occasionally DOES grab my nun's ruler. Some "habits" are hard to break. <impish grin>
There have been a few times that I have either written about, or shared pictures of my baby... Mollie T. Cat. Mollie tells me that she feels she has quite a few "Aunties" and even some "Uncles" out there... from some of the comments she has read. So, Mollie T says her "Thank You's" to you, as well.
I have always encouraged everyone to comment on my posts... long ones... even if they think that what they have to say has already been said.
If it's a religious, spiritual or political post... most are in agreement with what I have to say. Some are occasionally in mild disagreement, and some... luckily a very few... tend to, in a much less than subtle way, more than hint that some of my ideas are spawned by the devil... LOL.
I am so thankful for all of you ! I really AM ! I know the frequency of my posts has dropped... and I thank those of you who still look for, and welcome, my posts, and for your gracious understanding.
By the way... besides all of your wonderful comments... the biggest and best compliment I can get from you... is when you subscribe to my blog.
So please, if you like what you see but have not subscribed... I would just love it if you would.
Newbies, Oldbies, and In-Between-bies. You add so much to my posts... and I am grateful. Thank you all so very, very much.
