Milestone: 1000 Posts!

CelebratePIN ITYesterday I wrote my 1000th (and then 1001th) post! I’d never have thought when I started writing this blog that I’d end up writing over 1000 posts, but not just that, I also feel that I am likely to write 1000 more which is extraordinary and makes me so happy that I decided to start this blog just over 2 years ago.

To give you an idea, I’ve only written a post with less than 200 words a handful of times (and there’s about 10 or so Wordless Wednesday posts too), whereas quite a few of my posts have reached 500 words and a few over 1000 words.  To crudely estimate, my blog in total will have roughly 20ok words of posts.  To put that into perspective, the average word count for a novel is between 80k and 120k, so if we go bang in the middle at 1ook for a novel then I have enough words on my blog to fill two novels! Isn’t that insane? The irony is that during both my degrees it was word count that I’d always struggle with as I’d make my point too succinctly; anyone who’s a regular reader of my blog will doubt that, but it is true…

Anyway, just a quick update on my milestone and an opportunity to thank those who keep coming back to read my blog and who have made it possible for me to bang on about make-up and the like for 200k words…thank you! xx
