In May as this milestone approached I was excited - I thought about getting a sponsor and having a giveaway, but then I just couldn't find something that was fitting. June rolled around and my numbers of posts became closer and closer to the grand occasion and I still wasn't sure what I wanted to actually blog about ... so I stopped blogging. For two weeks. If you look back prior to 2009 a two week gap isn't much to note. I never blogged more than 2-3xs in a month for several years.
The tone of this 1000th post is starting off far from celebratory, but aren't milestones also opportunities to simply reflect? It seems to me a look back at where I've been would be good. This blog in large part has taken on many roles - a catalog of daily events, a sounding board for my own growth and grief, a catalog of my children's milestones and adventures, a review and giveaway forum, and most recently a place to share my photography. For the last eight years this blog has been a place to gather my thoughts, share my feelings, and a piece of my life - this post is no different.
Aside from these words of pondering - I couldn't come up with any words that were so profound that they needed to be memorialized here in this the 1000th blog post. As a result I am going to fall back to what I know best, my current focus: photography and allow you to enjoy 1000 photos from the past eight years
I've always loved photography - and the innovation of digital photography truly allowed that passion to explode so I had plenty of 1000s of pictures to wade through to create this collage. 1000 pictures is kind of hard to display in a concise manner. The pictures are itty bitty so and I was on the hunt to find a way to display them in a unique manner. So I went in the hunt for a mosaic program. I found on Cnet: AndreaMosaic a free mosaic program that is super easy to use! So if you'd like to make your own, enjoy! :)
Thanks for following and reading, I'd happily blog without an audience as I find this to be a good way to document my history and memories, but sharing it with others is always fun and often rewarding! Here's to another 1000 posts!
