This is my 500th post on this blog.

It came into being (under a different name and with a different appearance) on 4 July 2005, and you can blame Mark Berthelemy for getting me started!

I won't pretend to blase about this minor milestone that so many others passed so long ago. In fact, I have been giving some thought as to what would make a fitting 500th post. Fortunately, since I didn't really have any firm ideas, Vicki Davis came to the rescue. My 500th post, thanks to her, will take the form of a word cloud based on my del.icio.us tags.

Go make your own.

Perhaps for my 1000th post, I'll create a custom template. That gives me 500 posts to figure out how. Gulp!

And each one a unique thought or perspective for everyone else to enjoy.
I wonder how long it will take you to get to 1000?

@harold Thanks. You've been an encouraging fellow-traveller. A Barnabus, if you will.

@lynn Well, it took me nearly 3 years to make 500. I wonder if it will be another 3 before I crack 4 figures?

Happy 500! I just went past 500 and moved on -- missed it for myself! ;-)

You are a great person and I always love your comments and communication. I feel like we're pretty kindred spirits separated by a big lake.

Happy 500, Karyn. I think you're super!
