Blogging Milestones: 1,000 Posts!

Yesterday, I received an announcement via WordPress that alerted me to the fact that I’ve published 1,000 posts on this blog. Somehow, I’d lost track of that and wasn’t paying any attention to my post number.

So, for a blog that’s going on 3 years old, that’s not too bad. Granted, this includes random YouTube videos, posts of my art and that sort of thing, too. However, I’ve removed a good chunk of content in the form of my Sims stories, because I wanted to divide that away from the main blog. I figure it equals out.

When I moved to WordPress.com about a month ago, it lost all my Followers and Likes. I actually had a good number of Followers to lose, so that was a bit annoying – if you followed me before, you’ll need to follow me again!

So, I’m building those up again, and have hit these milestones:

20followers

50likes

Again, not too bad for being here less than a month.

WordPress Reader

I’ve also discovered that when you have a WordPress.com hosted blog, you get the benefit of being connected to the Reader section. This is similar to Tumblr’s dashboard, where you can search by tags and follow blogs you enjoy… just a bit less cluttered and over-saturated.

In fact, I like this a whole lot better than a Tumblr because you can actually find interesting posts and new blogs to follow. The quality seems a good bit better than the constant stream of micro-blogging you see in Tumblr, too. Not to mention, you can have the best of all worlds if you attach a WordPress.com blog to a Tumblr account via sharing.

Boom! All the blogging! 

So, I’m happy that I made the jump over to WordPress.com as a host, if only to have that sense of a social media connection in the background for my blog. I know that I’ve discovered a number of blogs the past month, and other people have discovered me… who would have never found me otherwise as a self-hosted blog.

Blog on!
