Let's Celebrate!

Yes, Retrospace has made it to 300 posts. I know a lot of blogs have thousands of posts and this seems like small potatoes. However, I never thought I'd last this long - I am about the most flighty and capricious person I know. I generally can't even finish a book or a movie. So, allow me to congratulate myself on making it to the big 300. WE'RE NUMBER ONE!!!

Retrospace has been a real labor of love. I've enjoyed reading your comments and am pleased to see the readership get larger with each passing month. I plan on congratulating myself again when I reach 500 posts, and it'll be interesting to see how this site has grown when I reach that point.

In honor of the occasion, I decided to let my staff off work early and throw a little party here at the Retrospace headquarters. A great time was had by all. Here's a snapshot from the event. Wish you could've been there! Cheers!

  5. Thanks for the kudos! Positive comments keep me going when I run out of steam sometimes... nothing worse than writing a cool post only to hear the crickets chirping.

  6. Conrats Gil! Well done! I've enjoyed every one of them. I'm not even up to a hundred yet (gettin' close) - so in relation to my productivity, you are a machine! Keep up the great work mate!

  8. Well done, Gil! I spent a large chunk of my childhood in the 70s (10 years, give or take) and Retrospace brings back many fond (and occasionally horrific) memories. Your writing style is nicely economical and always hugely entertaining. I pop in @ least once a week for my Retro-fix. Cheers, and here's to the next 300 posts! *this 'gag' only works if you know I'm now 45..! P.S: Die, melisma, die! and: Twitter could not be more aptly named, no?

  9. Oops! There should have been an asterisk with: "(10 years, give or take)" FAIL

  10. Thanks to Chick and jbfunky - you both have blogs I enjoy reading whenever a new post is up; so, your congrats mean a lot.

    Lorenzo - Thanks for the kind words. Interesting you should mention my "economical" style - this is a big thing with me. Blog posts should be short with lots of eye candy. They're BLOGS for chrissake - if I want to read something lengthy I'll pick up a book. (sorry for the quick rant)Thanks for dropping by! Oh, and one more thing: DIE MELISMA DIE!!!

  11. I too have only recently discovered your blog but it has become daily reading for me. Thanks for the good work and all encouragement to keep it up. I've been writing a baseball card themed blog for about 14 months and I know how difficult it is to come up with new posts.
