1000?!? Oh wow...

I've been thinking of this post for about 2 weeks now. I have no idea what to write. I've blogged 1000 posts, as of today.

1000 posts. Here at this blog.

It's funny because of my last blog. When I had my last blog, my 1000th post was my last. I was moving back here from the Wild West and I reinvented my blogger self. And now I've reached that magical 1000 again. I think it's cool.

I've posted 1000 times, here at "shoes/ purses." I feel like I should have some words of wisdom or do a review of my blog or of my self, some huge assessment, pointing out things I've learned about me. It feels like a blogging version of New Year's Eve... and you all know I hate New Year's Eve.

I thought about going through my blog and linking some of my favorite stuff here. But a 1000 posts is a lot, and I wrote some great stuff, and some shit. I'd rather let you all surf my blog yourself, if you feel the need. Do you have a favorite post?

For a 1000 post, this is rather disjointed and rambling, like I have some expectation that I can't live up to, which is my own doing. I feel like I should have something astounding to say but I don't.

When Lilith and I were together last, I told her I've come up with a new blog. I think if I ever get a new job and I move out of Daddy-O's attic, I'll start a new blog and a new identity then. I like reinventing myself online, though essentially, no matter the title, the moniker, the colors, it's still always ME when I post. Anyone who knows me in person or has chatted with me via email or phone, knows that my true self is revealed in my writing.

So maybe that's the amazing part of 1000 posts. I'm willing to reveal something about me?

Actually, what I think it amazing is that ya'll read me, over and over. That amazes ME. And pleases me.

So thank you to my readers. Thank you to all of you who blog and give me something to read. Thank you to all the friends I've made because of blogging. thank you for always commenting and giving advise, for being kind and funny and silly and insightful. I think I have the nicest blog readers in all of blog-ville. You all are wonderful; thank you for being here for me, for indulging me. That's how I feel. That there's a great group of people who indulge me by letting me write and blather and you all give feed back. I feel so blessed that you tolerate me! Thank you so much!

And because I love you and appreciate you, I have a little present. Leave me a comment and I'll send you a little something. You don't have to be a follower or join. Actually, I really am thinking of my peeps who are here daily (or every few days) and who've been around for awhile. I have addresses for many of you already. Watch your mail.

Here's to 1000 posts, and here's to a 1000 more.

many thanks to you all & lots of pink lipstick-y kisses,

Maggie Mae O'Sullivan, blogger

1000 blogs of greatness? That's a pretty great inning - I can't wait to read more!
As for my favourite out of the 1000, it has to be Mc's Uncomfortable Moment. I still cry with laughter reading that.

Goodness me! That's a lot of writing! And you've done this before? I feel tired now and need a nap at your efforts. ;) Congrats on having such a fun blog that we enjoy visiting! Keep up the great blogging and don't leave us behind when you reinvent your style again! :D

Congrats on 1000 great posts. I have always enjoyed reading them and enjoy more being with and talking to you in person. I don't think I could pick a favorite, there are too many of them. Keep up the good work.

Congratulations! That's a lot of writing! I still think you need to write a book about something!

Wowza--- I can't believe you've had time to do 1000 on here! I just found out I got a new job...not sure about the details yet, but I'll let you know when I do. Congrants on the big 1000!

You are a daily inspiration to me! Thank you for being my real friend in the virtual world. As opposed to a virtual friend. When I said in my 50 Things to Do List that I wanted to meet a blogger in person, you are who I had in mind. Mwah!
