1,000 Posts of Go Retro! (Really?!?)


Happy Fourth of July weekend, Go Retro readers (and hey, the t-shirts on the couple above are a perfect red, white, and blue!) A few weeks ago I began noticing when logging into Blogger that I had surpassed 1,000 written posts. I'm still in mind-boggled disbelief -- it's daunting enough to think about the amount of time it takes to write 100 posts, or 250, or 500, but...1,000?

Well, I guess it's proof that work isn't work when it's something you enjoy doing. Go Retro is also turning nine years old this month -- and my desire to blog about my retro-related passions still hasn't slowed down.

As much as I'm patting myself on the back, a blog wouldn't be a blog without readers. I'd like to thank those of you that have stuck around through the years and continue to read and find enjoyment, amusement, and nostalgic memories from my humble site. I really hope to be able to offer another giveaway to you soon, too. Here's to the next 1,000 posts!

  4. Many congrats and many thanks for some fine writing over the years. So many blogs seem to peter out after 6 months or so, the fact that this one is not only still going but that the writing remains outstanding is quite an accomplishment Pam. Give yourself a toast!

  6. Congratulations, Pam. What really sets this blog apart from many others, be they retro-related or not, is the quality of the writing which is top-notch. I have really enjoyed reading this blog over the years. A stand out for me was one you did a few years ago about the fabled Krofft Amusement Park which was really the best piece ever written and the last word on the subject as far as I'm concerned.

    1. Aw, thanks very much, Luis. On that note then I guess I have no choice but to keep up with the caliber of writing -- can't slack off now! Glad you enjoyed the post about the Krofft amusement park.
