500 posts!

Earlier this week I posted my 500th post. It's a big achievement, I've been blogging for over 7 years now and it has been an adventure. I'm not sure how to commemorate this achievement. Well Let's start by doing some looking back:

Like I said I've been blogging for 7 years. with 500 posts that is over 71 posts a year. now the first couple of years were slow going, my first two years had only 8 posts between them but I got the hang of it. I've never been one who had a single topic to talk about, I've talked about religion, politics, art, movies,books, writing, life, love and other mysteries. I've sometimes wondered if that was something that made it difficult to actually get an audience but considering how the last year went it probably was more my personal obscurity. Since using twitter and facebook I've gotten more traffic. I also think that getting involved with the blogger writing communities has helped. I've used this blog in a number of ways all in an attempt to help me organize so I can do all the things I want to do.

Well now what does the future hold? The future is a strange and wondrous place filled with Perils and Adventure.  It is hard to plan for the future because most the time plans can go awry. no one knows what the future holds. but here is my plan. I hope to publish more of my writing here. this will mostly be in the form of fantasy short stories taking world called heimr. I hope hope hope to one day get everything in place to start having a bimonthly vlog. so far everything I have tried to get that going it hasn't worked. Oh well. what else, I hope to do more showcasing of other writers and wantable writers in the blogging world, and just of creators in general. I'm also contemplating giving my blog a more mature look. possible even a more mature title and url. I would actually be changing it here so it shouldn't affect anyone who is already a follower of the blog, or who reads the blog through facebook and twitter, or google plus.

So now what to do in order to commemorate the fact that I have by passed the 500th post? let's due a raffel.

So that is it, where we've been where we're going and I hope you'll stick around for the ride. Till Next time God Speed and Open Roads
