A Milestone Missed

As I was posting yesterday’s post, I noticed that I had missed a milestone in Straight From Hel’s existence. It’s now come and gone, but I thought I’d mention it anyway. Why? Maybe a little bit of pattin’ myself on the back. Mostly, though, amazement. I would say, stupefication, but I would never stupe to stupefication.

This past Thursday…wait for it…was the 1,000th post on Straight From Hel.

Someday, when I have lots of time and energy (specifically: never), I’ll go back and count the number of comments you wonderful people have left here. Maybe I’ll skip counting that one comment left by he-knows-who-he-is (Marvin), where he challenged me to a BBQ duel. I live in Texas, Marvin, the land of longhorn cattle and more BBQ joints than a chicken has pox.

Where was I? Oh yeah. Posts. We have a lot of those around here too. Fence posts. Military posts. And now we have one-thousand-plus posts Straight From Hel.

  3. Congratulations! I would think putting these posts together as a book would make a fantastic "How To" for budding writers. You always have fantastic advice!

  7. Congratulations, Helen!

    And Texans know how to do a real BBQ, too - not the 'pulled pork' that is BBQ here in the South.

  12. Y'all are right. It is a lot of words, enough for a book. One crazy, discombobulated book, but a book nonetheless. Oh, you probably meant an organized tome, didn't you Lauri.

  15. Helen,

    1000 posts is amazing, especially when they are filled with good information and advice, not just 1000 pieces of fluff.

    Congratulations! I'm looking forward to the next 1000.
