On Something Nice

The dominos of life are interesting when one event leads to another. Not all that long ago Nia, a photographer and genuinely nice person from Istanbul, Turkey, granted me the Angelika Award. Interesting it had no ties to it as many other awards do.

It so happens that receiving that award came not too long after the March 10th post where I listed links to many blogs I had discovered since the fall and encouraged readers to visit them. Did you visit any? Did you find new places you regularly visit? Did receive any new visitors? Have any become regular visitors?

If any of the answers above is yes, this award is for you – and without strings attached. In my own way, passing along goodness and thanks seems to be the appropriate way to celebrate my 900th post.

    • Elyse,
      Thank you. Who knows how I’ve kept going because for sure, this blog didn’t grow as fast as yours. Nonetheless, I look forward to the next milestone. Thanks for commenting.


  1. Congratulations to a wonderfully open-minded and well-educated friend for reaching the big Nine Oh Oh! Make sure to let me know in advance when you’re closing in on 1000 so that appropriate celebration plans can be made.


    • Tim,
      This blog is a result of our conversation during the primaries of the 2008 season – so a tip of the hat to you! As far as reaching 1K, without any unforeseen circumstances, it could happen sometime this fall. Maybe I should time it so it happens on Election Day! πŸ˜‰ Oh well … time will tell. Thanks for stopping by


  2. Wow 900 posts. That is a lot of posts! I did get extra views on the days when you have mentioned my name my name yes my stats did go up.:+) I like awards without strings. Yipeeeee… Thank You for the Award and Thank You for your Blog.


  3. Congratulations! Here’s to another 900, and many more beyond!
    Unfortunately, with spring (and household chores) upon us, my time for spinning round the Net is becoming limited. At least until it gets really hot, and I have to hibernate through the summer. Maybe then I can cast my net further across the …
    Rats, I HATE when that happens! πŸ˜€


    • John,
      Thanks for the congrats. Spring time is what it is, so I understand. On the downside, I miss your comments here! BTW – In the countdown to the 10,000th comment, this was 9,993. Thanks for keeping me up to date!


    • Debra,
      900 is a lot, but I’ve been doing this 3 1/2 years and staying persistent. For my style, bouncing around topics is one of the things that keeps me going. Meanwhile, oh my my!!! You were so close to another milestone number because you are comment 9,999! Thanks for commenting.


    • Colline,
      Absolutely. I know the standard award is the blog version of chain letter to promote one another … and I do participate (many times with my own personal twist. So, this one was unique. Thanks for visiting.
