Twenty-Four Days of Christmas: 21

On the Twenty-First of December my Creation brought to me twenty-one Christmas Stars:

Not really very festive, I know, but if you look into the image, through, or beyond the sphere (hehehe!) the image takes on an almost 3D effect. Or that may just be my eyes. You could just imagine it to be a Christmas bauble if you only see the flat image.

The Twenty-Five Hundred

The Date: Saturday 24th March 2018.

The Time: All Day. And Beyond…

You may or may not be aware that I am fast approaching my 2,500th post here on Beyond the Sphere. I think I’ve passed that figure with the posts on my other blogs, but this is my main one, so it feels right to be celebrating the milestone post here with a little party.

I’ve designed a trio of badges, should you feel in the mood to advertise the fact that you will be calling by on the day:

If you notice, there is no mention of my blog on these badges, so they can be used for any celebration for anything that reaches 2,500 in the future. See – green and recyclable! I’m always forward thinking, I am!

Now, what was I saying? Ah yes. The party.

On Saturday 24th March 2018 from 00:00 until 23:59 anywhere around the world UK time, my blog will become a platform for showcasing talents. All that you, my wonderful visitor, needs to do on the day is to find a blog post that inspired, moved, uplifted, energised, or motivated you in some way and post a link to it in the comments in the party post (so please not to this post, not to the one you are reading right now, NOT THIS ONE (!!!), as that would spoil the surprise!)

Also, you may have a favourite post of your own that you’d like to share. Then do it! In the comments of the party post.

Also, you may provide a free service through your blog / site and you’d like to highlight that… well – do that too! In the comments of the party post.

Maybe you’d like feedback on something you do from other bloggers who don’t yet follow you; post a link to what it is in the comments in the party post.

Perhaps you have something else you’d like to share… then again, use the comments in the party post to do that as well.

The party is a little blogging get together with the intention of creating even more connections.

And perhaps, just perhaps, there may be the opportunity to get to close to 2,500 comments on one blog post as well. I don’t know if that’s a record, but it will be for this blog, however we will have to wait and see about that on the day.

Please pass the invitation on, everyone is welcome. We’re a friendly bunch here at the Mansion. I look forward to seeing you on the day. If not before (but please remember to keep your party comments until the party post is posted on Saturday March 24th 2018… have I mentioned that already?)


Yet Another Milestone Reached!

The final stats-related milestone has now been reached, for the time being, as it stands.

I have now clocked up 25,000 visitors.

Now, I’m not exactly one-hundred per cent sure on the difference between a visitor and a view, but looking at these figures I’m told that each visitor on average has viewed something on my blog 6.1 times. They spent thirty-two minutes on average here, quite possibly forgetting to close their browser down when they left their computer / tablet / mobile phone / laptop / watch / 3D Visor / Smart TV / game console / microwave oven or whatever other piece of equipment they used to call by here*. However long they stayed, I’m still happy they called by! Hi, you one in (now over!) 25,000. I felt nervous addressing five-hundred people once, but what’s 25,000 here in Blogland?

Not that I’m stats orientated, no, not me.

My next target is to have had at least one visit from every single country in the world… whether I’ll achieve this or not remains to be seen, but looking at the World Map of All Time, I don’t really have that many countries left to visit:

* This figure is a complete estimate, and – actually it’s complete fiction. How many folk do you know who use their microwave to read the internet?

So, this is the latest Milestone Post, the previous ones being reaching 2,000 posts and then receiving 150,000 views.

Who knows? The next milestone will be when I have coloured in the entire world…

We shall see!
