I've made it past 300 posts!

This past week I've gone past 300 posts! I didn't even notice at the time, but my post on Thanksgiving in the Civil War was number 300.

This blog keeps growing. I only started in July of 2011 and I've collected a nice group of followers. I appreciate every one of you! Thanks to you my hits have risen to an average of 250-300 a day. I'm planning on expanding this blog in 2013 with more posts and participation in blogfests. I'm always open to guest posts too.

I'm sort of spread out on social media right now and I think it's best to focus only on one or two. This blog and my Goodreads account will be getting the most attention. I'll also be using my Twitter feed, because that brings in new readers.

So what does this picture have to do with anything? Well, it's a 300-pounder Parrot gun, a rifled cannon used as a shore battery that threw a 300-pound shell. The photo is courtesy Wikipedia.


  1. Congratulations! And that's a heavy shell.
    Those are the areas where I focus online as well - blog, Twitter, and Goodreads. (And Google+ whenever I remember.)

  2. Hello,

    I got nominated for the Liebster’s Award for a blog and part of that is to nominated 5 other blogs that I really enjoy, which I am nominating yours. I know that this is a meme, but hey, as PT Barnum use to say, 'There's no such thing as bad publicity'. The suggested rules for accepting the award can be found on my blog entry about being nominated for the award by someone else.

    Regardless if you wish to join in, you have been doing a great job on your blog. Keep up the good work.


    1. Thanks a million! Choosing only five blogs of all the ones I read is going to be tough. I'll post on Monday.

    2. Actually Tuesday, I already have something scheduled. :-)
