Milestones or millstones

by Cellobella on Thursday, June 12, 2008

This is the 995th post for this blog. That’s quite a lot isn’t it? Which means that in just five more posts I’m going to hit a magical 1000 posts.

And that is a milestone.

Milestone

But is it also a millstone?

I feel as if I should do something to mark the occasion. Some sort of celebration or mention but I’m at a loss as what to do, and the mild stress this is causing is hanging over me as I watch the post numbers tick by.

I missed all the earlier anniversaries because, well, really I wasn’t paying that much attention.

So what to do? What have you done?

It feels a bit like my 40th birthday party. I took so long to work out what I wanted to do (hoping all the while Groover would throw me a surprise party) that I ended up just going down the pub with a few mates – which was nice but not very organised!

I feel we should celebrate these little milestones in our lives but to be honest sometimes my life feels so busy I can’t find the space to do it.

All of which is blame, excuse and denial!

I’ll come up with something so make sure you come back!

Let me see….you could send me $1000!!!! That would be a pretty cool way to celebrate!!! LOL.

1000 posts – that’s a LOT isn’t it??? I don’t know many bloggers who’ve written that many posts. So we’ll ALL be watching to see what YOU do!!!! How’s the pressure feeling now??? ;-)

Actually, I think sometimes we try to celebrate too hard. Going to the pub with a few friends sounds like a PERFECT way to celebrate to me. Maybe I’m just the “quiet type”.

I quite like the reflective type of milestone posts. Fairly quiet but still very meaningful.

But if you WANTED to give away money…. well…… ;-)

Most people do a best of. MrLady is doing one right now, best posts from the first 100 etc etc.

Or do something completely daring and different….

Don’t look at me! You will have to come up with it!
