The 3,000th Post, The 3,000th Post

All weekend I've been trying to come up with some special content to mark the 3,000th post at Original Content. Unfortunately, what's been playing through my mind is the theme song to Gilligan's Island. "The 3,000th post, the 3,000th post."

Yes, this is my 3,000th post. It is very cool that this pseudo landmark should come in the midst of OC's 10th anniversary year. I realized recently that our new look coming in 2012 is an anniversary present. The Time Management Tuesday project is also something different that's happening this year, which, like the cosmetic overhaul, I didn't plan ahead of time.

The year isn't even half over yet, so there may be other things just falling into place here. They will be a surprise for me, too.

Update: We now have a 3,000th Post Theme Song.

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a kid-lit blog
That started in two thousand two
to start a dialog

The blog content was fresh and new
Original utmost
After ten years of daily work
the three thousandth post, the three thousandth post

The ISP changed our address
The blog could not be found,
But thanks to the toil of Computer Guy
The new blog stayed around, the new blog stayed around.

The blog began to pick up steam
And Gail goes on and on
With book reviews
Blog tours too
Time management Tuesdays
NaNoWriMo
RSS feed and Facebook link
On Gail Gauthier's blog
Lyrics by Computer Guy.
I don't know about that line "And Gail goes on and on." Is that flattering or not?

Another Update: CG got his lyrics from life. "Gail goes on and on" is one of my blog labels. In that case, of course, it's flattering.

3000 posts is amazing, Gail. Congratulations!! I know how hard it can be sometimes to keep coming up with content (particularly "original content" ;-)). This gives me a particular appreciation for your accomplishment!

Thanks. What's particularly interesting, to me, is the way blog-related things keep happening this year. Now I'm going to look for them, so they'll probably stop.

10 years, 3000 posts...any way you look at it, it's a major milestone! Congratulations. Like Jen said, it's hard to keep coming up with blog content (as proven by my total neglect of my personal blog) and I admire your ongoing dedication!

Dedication--obsession. Potato--potahto.

Sheesh, I can't even imagine what I'll be saying by my 3,000th post. Here's to several thousand more...
