There seems to be an element of timing that fails me but then balances out through the kindness of other people for which I am very grateful. Being taken up with getting into the nitty-gritty of The Wire, I missed the opportunity to do the Big Thing I had always planned for post 500, which is disappointing as I failed to really achieve anything from the 400th post.
It crept up quickly – as these things do – this time and I will be making sure I book a bit of time off work in the near future to enact my plans which will be something different from my norm but that is all you are getting out of me for the moment…
Today’s post instead of being a celebration of a milestone will be, firstly a big thank you to Jess Harpley for sending me a mass of books and merchandise as well as unknowingly managing the timing for this, my 501st post. Secondly I extend my appreciation to all of you, be you authors gifting me your hard work or a regular reader, that’s what the blog is all about and yes I am aware of how quiet I have been of late. It could be blog related and will be if I can find an angle to make me feel less guilty about disappearing so completely.
The most important thing for reaching such a number of posts is that is comes not just from my efforts but also all your support, kindness and friendship that have flowed through your comments and likes over the years. I have made some awesome friends on here, three met and many more so will be over the coming years one hopes.
The years which will make up the next 500 posts will have some new and interesting things I hope as well as bringing a more diverse range of books, with more YA and graphic novels into the mix as well as a few things to welcome more bloggers and authors together. This social thing we have is constantly fun, thought-provoking and downright refreshing and so this achievement is for you.
