The Tumblr system never sends me those cute little notes that say, “Congratulations. Your blog had a birthday,” or “Congratulations on your 1,000th post."
Nope. I have to track my own milestones. So, I present the following one to you.
Yep. I just liked my 100,000th post. That’s a lot of reading in my 2+ years on Tumblr and a lot of clicking on that little heart symbol.
And, which post was number 100,000? Appropriately enough, it was one from last Sunday (yes, I’m always behind on my dash - move past this issue) by IfJanetRanIt in which she pointed out that PBS was founded on November 3, 1969.
It sort of tickled me that IfJanetRanIt was my 100,000th like because I’ll never forget how I started following her blog. She sent me a fanmail in which she said that she was old enough to remember ElectraWoman, DynaGirl, Wonder Bug, and Dr. Shrinker. But, I think the clincher was her closing.
I promise my posts won’t suck. Maybe.
Hey. How can you not follow somebody when they close their note with that?
And, isn’t it appropriate that PBS would be involved in my 100,000th like? I mean - PBS: Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, Electric Company. Who doesn’t like PBS?
It’s taken about 2 years and some change to like 100,000 posts and I’m still going strong. I look forward to liking my next 100,000 posts. While it’s fun to write and post stuff on Tumblr, it’s really more fun to read, like, and comment on all the stuff that comes across my dash. Even if I am a little slow at it.
