Not that I’m making a big song and dance about the fact that I reached the milestone of 3000 posts here on this blog yesterday, no, I’m not doing that at all. Although I was a little disappointed that WordPress didn’t celebrate the fact with me.

It did with my 100th post over on Splodge and Splatter; I received this little notification:

See? 100 posts on Splodge and Splatter
But nothing in the slightest was mentioned about my 3000th post here.

So, I’ve taken matters into my own hands, and very quickly created my own celebratory button instead. I’ve already posted it in the sidebar, which is visible to the right if viewing on a computer screen, or down below if using a mobile device. If you’re viewing using any other kind of device, I have no idea where it is, but if you can see this blog you can’t really miss the button.

Not that the button does anything remarkable in fact. The sidebar / bottombar / whereverbar button merely links to the 3000th post. The image of the button above does even less… it’s just an image.

I’ve done a little detective work, and maybe WordPress is using the figures from the app rather than the website.

The website shows:


I have no idea what that draft is… I shall have to check it out sometime. However, I digress.

The app shows:

Which means I have another eight posts to go on the app to get to 3000 posts. It’s a good job I’m using the website figures. And it’s a good job I’m not making a big song and dance over the fact that I’ve published 3000 posts here on Beyond the Sphere.

  1. I’m so glad you;re not making a big song and dance about it Tom. That would not be at all seemly. Might even be considered bragging by some. Not that you could ever be accused of doing that.

    1. Never in a million years would you see me making a big song and dance over reaching 3000 posts, Raili. And I could never be accused of bragging as that is another thing I wouldn’t be seen doing in a million years… 🤭
