Yesterday Stargazer’s World had its 1,000th post. I’m pretty new to the world of blogging, having only joined the team little over a year ago, but I think many endeavors such as this fizzle away after the initial enthusiasm and we (and I use the term because Michael and the other contributors here have made me feel at home from the get go) are very proud to be going strong, growing and improving every day!
There are a lot of people to thank for this. First and foremost you the reader, whether you lurk or post in the comments, whether you are a new arrival (welcome!) or a regular (great to see you again!), you are the lifeblood of the blog, we write hoping others will want to read what we have to say. We also need to thank the greater blogging community, I have been lucky that joining the Stargazer’s World team has put me in contact with so many wonderful people all over the world. The support of so many bloggers who read us, and we read them in return, is crucial. In this time of interconnectivity and virtual communities we learn, grow and improve by example and collaboration.
To all my friends that make up the Stargazer’s World team, guest posters, regular posters, those that have come before me and will come after me, we are all part of the effort that made reaching the 1,000th post milestone possible. But most of all a big THANK YOU to Michael who started all this, our fearless leader, our Captain Kirk (but without the toupee), the Stargazer who showed us the stars, the guy who wrote most of those 1,000 posts! You sir are a gentlemen and a friend thru and thru.
So here is to 1,000 more posts! Glad you were here for the first leg of the journey, buckle up cause we are only getting started…
PS – I promise to stop referring to myself as “new” at blogging. It’s been a year and over a 100 posts (so I’ve written about 10% of the 1,000 posts), the shticks grown old by now, so no more references to being new at this from now on!
