One Thousand Posts

Dear Reader,
This post marks 1,000. First of all, I can't believe I've been blogging since 2005. Wait. 2006. Yeah.
Second, I can't believe I've had that much to say!
Bwhahahahahahahahahahaha!
I always have a lot to say.

Anyway, in honor of this occasion, I've decided to have a give-a-way! 1,000 posts is pretty good, eh? Here's how it works:
1. Leave a comment, get an entry.
2. Leave a comment and blog about it, get two entries (make sure you tell me you blogged about it. Of course).
3. Leave a comment, blog about it, and...I can't think of anything else. Just do the first two. And get two entries. Three entries is way too many, anyway. Especially since I'm not expecting a lot of entries.

Speaking of which, did you know my readership has gone down by 12%? I figure it's because I'm not reciprocating like I used to. I'm okay with it, but I'd be a liar if it didn't make me pause for just a second. But I got over it. Or I'm getting over it. Or I will get over it! *sniff

Oh, but anyway, want to know what I'm giving away? If you win, you'll get this:
1. Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels
2. A Jane Austen Movie! Of some kind!
3. Sew Sara Hair Clips (for girls)
4. Chocolate!
5. Something else that's cool. Really cool.

All of it. All five. For one lucky person. You know you want it!

You may leave comments until Tuesday, May 18th at 4PM. My time. Which is Mountain. Why 4PM? I have no idea. Just sounded good.

So, comment away!

Head Nurse or Patient- you be the judge said...

What a milestone! I might be there by next year- I have been peeking in occassionaly for about a year-

Congrats on your progress past the plateau- I have been sitting on one for a month myself and it is frustrating.

How did you figure your readership is down? You've got 135 followers on Google that's up from when I checked awhile ago. I've always wondered if Google Reader affects your numbers on the site meter.

In anycase that's cool to get 1000 posts. Good journaling I say. :)

Courtney N said...

Haha 1000 post huh? Is that all? : )

Love you!

Cristy said...

I never enter giveaways, but secretly wish I had time to cause who doesn't want free stuff? I've been curious about that Jillian M. stuff so would love that book so...

1000 posts! Congrats! I'm a Cheryl fan for sure and miss seeing her and talking and feeling like I"M less crazy. xoxo

Google Reader tells me that I have 1 subscriber and I'm pretty sure it's me hahahaha. So, if I go down 12%, I guess that means I lost a limb or something.

Julie said...

Comment! And your prizes are awesome.
And so are you. And so is 1,000 posts. That's a lot!!

Cardalls said...

I am commenting and would love to win the fun stuff!

Mel said...

Ooo, I just have to enter. I'll cross my fingers!

Judith said...

wow 1,000 posts!! that is amazing! i am impressed...i might have 110 or something like that. but i just started about 1 to 1 1/2 yrs ago, and not every day that is for sure.

i never win anything, but what the heck...oh, and i'm going to go blog about it right now!

sorry the readership has gone down some. i know that i can't always ready everyday so sometimes i do 2-3 days at a time....

i have to admit that i don't blog for the comments, etc...it is my way of staying sane. it is great therapy! it makes me feel good.

have a great day!!!!

Readership smeadership. I am horrible at keeping up with other people's blogs, but I LOVE YOU, so it's okay, right? Also, I lent you baking powder. But mostly you do stuff for ME, like watch my kid(s) or check my liquids with your bag, loan me your car, or bring me chocolate. So, prizes to the contrary notwithstanding, I get cool stuff from you anyway. Who's jealous? That's right, everyone. Much love--888 forever!

Moddy said...

Wow 1000 posts. Maybe in like 5 yrs I can hit that mark. Don't worry about the readership (such a funny word to me) being down, I bet it depends on the day.

MBusse said...

1000!?! Impressive, Cheryl! And, that is QUITE the give-away. Holy motherload.

bythelbs said...

I just wanted to say congrats on the 1000 posts! I'm very grateful for HMC because that's how I know you.

Julie said...

Pick me! Pick me!

Geez, is you had a dollar for every post, you'd be rich! Sort of :)

flip flop mama said...

Wow, 100 is a big number! I've been blogging for longer, I think but I only have about half that many. I'd totally love to win!

Annette Lyon said...

I've been seriously absent from blogland of late, but I had to drop in and say congratulations on hitting 1,000! Woot!

(I like Jane Austen and chocolate.) :D

Sara said...

woah, how did i almost miss this?!
thanks for putting my hair clips in there :)

I never comment but that doesn't mean I'm not reading my friend. Besides, I couldn't help leaving a note today...5 give aways and all stuff I love? Why not? I have never won a raffle ever- this could change my life. Hey good luck with the garden. I hope you have your carrots, radishes, spinach, lettuce, and sweet peas all planted. They like cold weather. Of course you'll be able to plant everything else right now too because I think you're almost out of the frost. All I can say is mulch, mulch, mulch! Saves weeding and watering later. God luck!

Kevin and Lisa said...

So I'm a little behind...but I'd still love to be in the giveaway! Who doesn't love to win!

Tiffany said...

1000 posts!? That's amazing! Here's to a great giveaway and a great blog!! :)

Michelle said...

I suppose I should probably enter...since it is as easy as leaving a comment. I'm glad you are happy today! Love you!

goodness never fails said...

congrats on your posts! i'm hoping to start a blog of my own soon... thanks for the inspiration!

Marianne said...

Congrats on a grand!

And...oh, oh, oh...pick me, pick me! :o)
