One thousand! One grand! 1,000! 1k! A G! M in roman numerals!
Facts about the number 1,000:
– The year 1,000 started on a Monday on the Julian calendar
– The ancient Egyptians represented the number 1,000 as a lotus flower
– The 1,000th richest person in the world is worth just over a billion dollars.
– 1,000 years from now we may finally have flying cars no for real this time.
This here is the one thousandth post on this blog! And there’s only one thing to say, which is THANK YOU VERY MUCH SERIOUSLY THANK YOU for reading, for commenting (I have read all 110,575 comments), and making this whole blogging thing so much fun for me.
And in honor of the thousandth post, I thought I’d give ONE THOUSAND QUERY CRITIQUES FOR COMMENTERS! Oh. Wait. Got that reversed.
Let’s try that again:
THE ONE THOUSANDTH COMMENTER ON THIS POST GETS A QUERY PLUS FIRST FIVE PAGES CRITIQUE! Which can be done over e-mail at the commenter’s convenience.
Will we get to 1,000 comments? Well, I’m not sure…. But then again, I didn’t ever think I’d get to 1,000 posts either.
Thanks again everyone! Looking forward to 1,000 more.
