50K, Whaddaya Say?

Well, I got so involved with my gang story, I forgot to brag about hitting yet another blogger milestone. 50K hits. I can’t really believe it to be honest. When I started this blog last summer I thought it would probably last a couple of months and then I’d get bored or it would be so boring that petitions would be circulated to pull the plug. Well slap me silly and color me surprised.

I’ve had a lot of fun with this little piece of real estate in the blogosphere. I’ve met some amazing people and even more amazing writers. I’ve learned about many new things, have become somewhat less technologically challenged and even learned how to use my digital camera. All good things.

I’ve learned how to employ discipline to write regularly. In fact, I’ve never written more, which is a good, good thing. I’ve also become more curious as a person again, thoughts constantly going to what subject or topic I want to post on the blog. Read a lot more too.

But the very best thing about blogging for me is the interaction between myself and people from all over the world, across the country and probably even down the street. I’ve had some amazing debates, conversations and ideas tossed back and forth from all of you guys out there – and I want to say, Thank you. So very much.

I am honored and thankful to all of you for coming, reading, commenting, helping, giving me a laugh, a run for my money and introducing me to your worlds as well.

Much love,

Annie (aka Writer Chick)

  1. I knew this milestone was fast approaching and I couldn’t be happier for you.
    Piquing your curiousity, reading more, writing more all because of the blog?
    How cool is that?
    You deserve all the kudos you will recieve on this post.
    As for me, I thank you but take very little credit as far as all that you’ve done here.
    I could tell you would do great blogging which is why I asked you to do it.
    I’ve told you time and time again that you blew me away. People still come to Smoke and Mirrors to read your stuff. Strange? Coincidence? Not even close. It’s just really good writing.
    Keep the pen moving.
    As I’ve told you before, if you write it, they will be here to read it.
    Congrats, kiddo.

    Hey Mikey,
    People still come to S&M to read those old posts? I’m stunned – had no idea – thanks for telling me cuz that makes me feel good. πŸ™‚

    If I write it, they will read? Guess I am trying to build my own little field of dreams here. Wish me luck. πŸ˜‰

    Seriously though, thanks for all the help and encouragement – I never would have done this if you had badgered..er..encouraged me.
    ((((hugs back))))


  2. You’re awesome-your writing, your insights, and your freakish good luck at finding really fab bags for nothing.
    You’ve gotten me writing more, which you know. Thanks for being on each day. I know how dry it can get sometimes.

    Aw, thanks Jess,
    The feeling is mutual. Though I think my freakish good luck at finding fab bags has come to an end. 😦

    It’s true, it can get dry – and the rise and fall of blog activity is a little odd to get used to – I’m still learning. It’s a great discipline though. You know?

    Thanks much,


  3. Lady,
    I am glad that you have a blog, because you are freakin’ fabulous! Let me repeat: freakin’ fabulous, alright? I am glad that we have got to know each other. You’re writing is an inspiration to me, and helps me think about things.

    Hey Kenz,
    Aw, thanks. I’m glad we ran into each other too. It’s been such a pleasure to get to know you and to read your work. Really. πŸ™‚


  4. Congrats……(confetti flying…parade passing…) on your 50K…looking forward to much more….sorry i missed your gang story, i’ve been tied up (hehehe) all weekend, so i didn’t get to your blog until today, i’ll catch you on the flip side….

    Heya Sweets,
    I wondered where you got to. Wow, thanks for the parade – that was really great. πŸ˜‰

    It’s okay on the gang story – if we do another one, I’ll let you know.

    Good to see you again.


  5. Hi WC,
    Way to go! Now, when are you going to go pro?
    the Grit

    Hey Grit!
    Thanks buddy. Go pro? Eh? You mean blog-wise? I think that’s way over my head – but thanks for the compliment, I’m flattered. πŸ™‚


  6. You hit it quick. Congrats for a job well done.

    Hey Evyl,
    Yeah, it does seem quick, doesn’t it? Really don’t know how it happened. Thanks for the congrats.


  7. To think it all began with cream boogers… a classic you should repost it here to celebrate ;p

    Hey Ger,
    Yeah, you’re right, it did all start with cream boogers. Actually, I did post it here but that was quite a while ago. Thanks for remembering and for sticking with me.


  8. That’s amazing, but I won’t congratulate you, because I know you don’t write this blog to simply make your counter click.
    But, I will give you kudos for bringing your wit and wisdom to your audience and for having developed such powerful messages that they all enjoy and look forward to.
    As a writer, I’m sure your goal was to share your talent with others. And you’ve done a great job.
    I hit a 1,000 today after a little over a month and am truly stunned. I had expected my little blog to be just between me, myself and I. For some reason, people keep coming by.

    Wow Ham, what a really nice thing to say. Thank you.

    And congrats on hitting the big 1000 – it is a thrill isn’t it? I have no doubt your blog will become very popular very soon. I mean heck, beer, patriotism and politics, what more could you want? Very well done.


  9. Yayyyy! I’m glad I stumbled across this blog through *I think* Michael’s little corner of the WWW. It makes me smile and laugh and think and wonder and and yeah, good times. Congrats on your 50K, and here’s hoping for another 50. Thousand.

    Hey Red,
    Thanks sweetie – I think we met either thru mikey or evyl – not sure which, but no matter cuz here we are. I’m looking forward to your 50K party too. What fun. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks DT – you quick-witted devil, you. πŸ˜‰


  11. Annie Congrats! Wow what a milestone to hit! You have an amazing blog and it’s always so interesting/fun/exciting to see what you have written next πŸ™‚ That’s what keeps us all coming back for more. DT is “write” πŸ™‚ you kick ass WC!

    Thanks sweetie-pie. I’m glad I could bring a little laughter to you. I live to make people laugh, sometimes I manage it. πŸ˜‰


  12. *snort* Think I’ll keep my response to myself. Don’t want to further uglify your loverly post/comments :]

    πŸ˜† I guess we’d better behave ourselves. The others will appreciate it. πŸ˜‰


  13. Congratulations Annie! You’ve made my own blogging experience much more enjoyable. I’ve loved reading your posts and comments over the past few months, and I look forward to more. Here’s to another 50k! πŸ˜€
