300 posts!

300I started my blog almost three years ago, writing about two subjects I’m passionate about: writing and travelling.

Blogging has been a lot of fun. I love the discipline of preparing and scheduling my posts, and I love that blogging keeps me looking at topics in an entirely different way.

But what I’ve found most rewarding about blogging are all the wonderful people I’ve met along the journey. People like me who share a passion for writing, reading or exploring the world. People who open my eyes to new ideas, new places, new books to read or cities to explore. The journey wouldn’t be half as much fun without you. Thank you!

As much fun as blogging is, as all bloggers know, it also requires a level of discipline. The need to write blogs despite the demands of work, or family, or friends, or (why not?) just plain laziness.

So it makes sense to pat ourselves on the back every once in a while when we pass important milestones. When I started out, I never would have imagined  reaching 300 posts – but I’ve done it!

And I look forward to many more posts – with the wonderful  likes, comments, support, and insight from all those who’ve visited my site and taken the time to contribute.

THANK YOU for joining me on my journey, and for helping me to achieve 300 posts!

    Congratulations Kimberly! I confess I’ve grown a little lazy with my two blogs so this is inspiring. Today I will write a blog post! I think a lot of bloggers have slackened off this year. But I agree the best thing is meeting up with blog followers – I’ve met quite a few passing through Venice and it’s always much fun and good talk.

      Thanks, Catherine. I always love your blog posts (maybe the cold weather will inspire you… if you’re not skiing!) : )

    Congrats on number 300! I always take note of every 100th post I do. Such nice round numbers.

      Ha! You’re right about marking the hundreds – that’s when I always note it.

        Since I started posting every day, I’ve been getting through every 100 in about 2 1/2 months. I already marked 666, though. Next up is 700 this month!

        Wow, going on 700 posts with a post rate of one a day? In my part of the world, we say ‘Mamma mia’. VERY impressive. I will read and learn. Congratulations!

    First of all, congrats on the 300, nice one. Second, totally agree on the personal inter-blogger dialogue, the biggest surprise for me to be honest. Glad to be a small part of your story, and looking forward to your 500 🙂

      Thanks, Spike! Very kind words from a prolific blogger like you. : ) I enjoy being part of your journey, too.

        Was that horrific or prolific? 😀

      Thanks, Nicola! Until we manage to do a time travel book tour together, : ) i’m glad we can be in touch through our blogs.
