My 750th Post count party!

February 4, 2013

Hey there, friends and followers. Today is my 750th post for the Kelworth Files, and even though it’s not a hugely round number, it’s a cool one, so I thought I’d throw a little party for it. Help yourself to anything at the bar, and there’s some pretty good cupcakes and pizza out on the coffee table. 😉

In case you haven’t heard it, ‘post count party’ is a term I came across on the SDMB message board – the forum software keeps track of how many posts members have made, so some people make threads just to congratulate themselves on their five thousandth post or whatever – and the mods do not always take kindly to them. 😉

So, it’s been about two and a half years since I started blogging, and I’ve had a great time here. This may not be the most successful blog in the whole world, but I kinda like it, and the friends I’ve made. I should probably concentrate on keeping up with some of my favorite bloggers, rather than just sitting here and doing my own thing… (Checks a blog randomly picked from memory in another tab, Trisha’s WORD+STUFF…)

Oh, man! Overcoming Adversity is today! Maybe I should wipe out this post and start working on a flash fic… I signed up for that, didn’t I?  Okay, yes, I signed up for it, but it spans two days. So stay tuned for my flash fiction on the subject of Overcoming Adversity, tomorrow on the Kelworth Files! 😀 We now return you to your regularly scheduled party.

Yeah, hmm… I do want to keep doing the blog hop thing. ‘Blog hop’ as a term seems to be getting more popular than blogfest, doesn’t it? That’s a good thing to keep in mind as I search for writers’ blog hops in 2013.

I’m looking forward to the craziness of the A-Z challenge, and I’m wondering if there’s going to be a Platform-building Campaign this year. Rach from Rach writes hasn’t posted anything since October.

And on that somewhat sad thought my train of thought rumbles to a stop. Except I still have enough brainpower to ask – what are you looking forward to, blogging-wise, for the rest of the year?


Thank you for four hundred!

December 28, 2011

Well, this is my four-hundredth post, and I’d like to thank all of my readers for giving me the support and encouragement to make it this far.

And, so, what better time to send shoutouts to the most valuable people who have helped make the Kelworth Files what it is today. In alphabetical order:

Arlee Bird:  Arlee is one of the shining lights of the blogosphere, of course, patron of the A to Z challenge and a regularly seen avatar in the platform-building campaigns and challenges. I always look forward to seeing a comment from Arlee, be it about books, business cards, or public transit – and I’m looking forward to the 2012 A to Z! Thanks so much, Arlee.

Avatar139: Big shout-outs to the first guy to volunteer to be a guest post author for the Kelworth Files, of course. He’s also expressed some interesting thoughts in comments on my post, talking about his muse and his feminine side, LARPing, and writing for the money.
