1,000th Post Extravaganza!

I can't believe I made it to 1,000 posts! On second thought, I'm not too surprised at the number, but rather how quickly I reached this milestone. I vowed to make at least 1 blog post every day since I started the B Long Blog way back on April 14, 2011; I only recently broke the streak and missed one day (11/11/12). But I have more than made up for it, as I have now posted 1,000 times over the last 623 days. That averages 1.6 posts per day... not too shabby! I'd still like to see that increase to 2 posts per day, but it's not always easy as I do have a life outside of the blog (I know, it's hard to belive). Click the link above for some stats on the timeframe.

 For more stats and facts, look no further! I'll have plenty, so let's get started.

As of now, at 9:30pm on December 26, 2012 (Boxing Day!):

Facebook "Likes" - 49 (Can I get to 50?!?! Sheesh.)
Total pageviews - 35,580
Pageviews per day - 57.11

I've found some discrepancies with the view counts for these posts, so a few of these may not be worthy.  Now of those top 10 posts, only 7 are originals by me and not re-posts from other sites; of those 7, I only consider 3 to be posts with some "hefty" content. The #1 spot though is a B Long Blog original, so I'm happy that it's still the far and away leader. Now, here's my own best of the B Long Blog, all originals from oldest to newest:
