Marking Four Hundred Blog Posts

Planning Ahead:  Stamping Out 400 in the Glorious Outer Banks Sand During My Visit There Two Weeks Ago

Planning Ahead: Stamping Out 400 in the Super Soft Outer Banks Sand of North Carolina During My Visit There Two Weeks Ago

Four hundred–woo-hoo! I can’t help but wonder what the word count is on that milestone. Writers, you may know, always talk in word count. I suppose I could find out but I certainly don’t have the time.

It takes a lot to do a blog post, especially mine at Bonjour Colorado, which tend to be full-on stories with lots of links and photos. But I love it. I started out as more of a book person–I’ve authored five, in fact.

Yet blogging on destinations from Stockholm to Santa Fe has allowed me to broaden my coverage on favorite places, people and experiences. And posting on a variety of subjects from The Thrill of a Bike Race to Skiing with Rock Stars to Traveling Like a Pampered Pet and Other Tales from the Road to Take Me to the River Especially on a Rafting Adventure allowed me to have a taste of and report on new happenings I likely wouldn’t cover outside of this blog. Posting podcasts with interviews with people such as Ken Burns, Cheryl Strayed, Susan Herrmann Loomis and a host of other illustrious figures whether well known or not, has permitted me to share with you interviews and information from my Travel Fun radio show. Writing a beauty post such as A Happy Ending to My Own Horror Story as well as a tribute to my mother at My Mom:  A True Original helped me to open up even more to you, dear reader.

Yes, it’s been fun albeit time consuming. With plans to create a new look for Bonjour Colorado by the end of 2015, I look forward to a solid future as I begin to chip away toward the 500-post marker.

Just for the heck of it, you might want to read my other  stories that marked major milestones: Reflecting Upon Two Hundred Blog Posts and A Synapse of Thoughts on Three Hundred Blog Posts.

As for the 100 marker, I think I was too much caught up in a book project to pay it any notice.

I created Bonjour Colorado toward the end of 2008 and just like with my books, most of the information in the four hundred posts is still relevant. Remember, it’s about stories. Make good use of the search (in the top righthand corner) and pull down the menus on the categories (also on the right side) and find a tale or two that resonates for you. Have a glass of wine or a cup of tea and let me take you away to a life that’s a little bit French, rather Coloradan and very much in the spirit of savor the moment no matter where you go.
