500 Ramblings

This is my 500th post. Not the most prolific blog of all time, but I do have my moments. I wonder why five hundred sounds like more of a milestone than 450, or say, 600? Maybe because it's nice and easy to add. And if you drop the zeros, can be done comfortably on ones fingers.

Anyways, 500 does feel like a bit of a milestone in a land where blogs seem to come and go like the changing weather.
I'm not sure what I was thinking when I started this...Oh wait, I remember! I was thinking that I couldn't talk to him so I should just write. But That's not exactly why it ended up being a blog. I mean, a word document would have been a lot simpler lol.
Perhaps it was because I had been lurking for ages and was still too shy to comment on anything so it was much easier just to start writing ramblings of my own. And I had a deep certainty that no one would read  it anyways!

Either way, I don't really remember and that doesn't bother me one bit. Because here it is. My little place to redecorate as the ocd strikes, bitch, theorize, share ideas, and wonder what makes the world turn. It is quite clearly, much more fun that a word document.

And I have to admit, I rather like it here in Blogland. Because I get to share ideas, explore new concepts, and interact with people that I would otherwise never have gotten to talk with. Plus, where else would I vent? Alpha will only tolerate so much complaining lol.
Plus, I can rearrange the furniture as often as I want!

So thank you to everyone who visits--the ones who comment regularly who make me laugh or give me inspiration, and those who read quietly like I once did. I am sometimes quite amazed that you find something here worth reading...

  1. Congratulations on your 500th post. That is quite an accomplishment.

    Your posts are always so insightful and make me think. Sometimes that's good, other times not but I keep coming back. You're a great writer and a great thinker.

  2. Congratulations Lil,
    500 is indeed a milestone.
    I have to congratulate myself to: "Congratulations Bas, today, you have read exactly 500 posts from Submissive Sanctuary."
    Now is not that a milestone to?
    I don't think I will ever write 50 posts, 500 is unimaginable.
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

    1. Bas, thank you.
      And do you mean you have read them all?? I'm not sure I have even read them all lol. Yes, that would be one heck of a milestone with an enormous coffee count no doubt...

      You'll be at fifty posts before you know it! And from there, 500 just kind of floats along before you know it.

      Glad to hear that I have contributed to the start of discussions. It's always nice to have inspired some form of thought (even though I do sometimes find myself apologizing for it lol).

    2. tori,
      I hate it when I love a new blog and they disappear into the ethers!
      And you disappeared, but what counts is that you're back! And aren't blog years like dog years or something, which would make your blog a historical rarity?

  13. Congrats on 500 posts, lil! That is quite a milestone. Non-bloggers don't realize how much work goes into the care and feeding of a blog. Especially the feeding--it's a real pain to have to toss the darn thing some content to much on at least every couple days. Having the content actually make sense and have meaning for readers is strictly a bonus!

    I appreciate all you share. All the best!

    1. Thank you Jake.
      And yes, care and feeding is very important. Of course, the occasional bit of junk food is perfectly acceptable lol.

  15. CONGRATULATIONS!!! 500 blog posts is awesome, and good reason to celebrate. I'm glad you're here too...

    I appreciate your insight and your ~ i don't know what to call it ~ your personna, maybe? Just your way of thinking, way of looking at things, and a sort of ~ sheesh, i'm struggling with words ~ an insouciance, maybe? A touch of nonchalance, if you know what i mean, that's delightful.

    hugs,
