This Makes It 2,000

Riffing on the number 2,000… yesterday I wrote about a hummingbird drawing 2,000 years old.  Today…  Ta dah!  This is my 2,000th blog post!

Almost six years ago I began blogging every other day.  By now I write daily posts and more when there’s breaking peregrine news.  My husband notes that this sustained effort is roughly equivalent in length to War and Peace.

That’s a heck of a lot of writing, so for today I’m going to take a break and encourage you to do two things using the panel on the left:

1.  Try the search box.  Find something interesting in my other 1,999 entries.  Search for anything — a noun, a verb, an adjective.  Below you can see that I searched for the word “intriguing.”  Scroll down to read older posts you may have missed.

2.  Donate to the blog.  My blog is hosted at WQED Pittsburgh, where I work as Director of Information Technology for both TV and radio.  Like all public broadcasting stations we rely on donations to keep us going.  If you like this blog, make a donation of any size to show your support.  Click on the hummingbird graphic.

Thanks!

p.s. The screenshot below shows you what to do.

    Kate, Congratulations!

    Not only do I read your blog daily, but I truly count you as my “cyber friend”. You have answered many questions for me over these years and have increased my knowledge of Peregrines and other plants and wildlife 1000 fold. Thank you very much. I look forward to the next 2000 posts.

    Hi, Kate–Congratulations on your 2000th terrific blog! I just tried to leave a donation but kept getting an error. I’ll try again tomorrow but you might want to check it out…

    Uh oh, Kathy! I’ll look into it.

    Your blog is one of the first things I check each morning after I log in. So glad you started this all off 2000 posts ago. Very interesting, very informative. I look forward to the next 2000 posts.
    I plugged in a few words to see what I’d find. “stinky” was an interesting one — try it.

    Congratulations Kate on a wonderful blog! I have shared your entries with many friends and coworkers, so many times in fact, I no longer have to explain who “Kate” is when I reference you!

    I was at the beach when this was posted, so I took your “search challenge” and typed in knit (because I was knitting at the beach of course!) and except for one post in which your brows were “knitted” I found nothing. But I just searched for “beach” and found lots of good stuff.. in particular, I now know that the crows I saw and heard were young American Crows (6/4/12) and not fish crows (sigh).
