1,000 posts



I asked my Twitter friends what I should write about for my 1,000th blog post. I was feeling a lot of pressure and stress to write something profound or funny or brilliant.

The first, and only, answer I got was from my pal Kristiana Kocis, who said this:


That sounds like something I can sink my teeth into! It's going to take me a few days, but I'm putting together a post for you about what it takes to populate a blog with regular, useful and relevant content for your readers.

That, however, will not be my 1,000th blog post. Because this one is!

I started this blog on October 9, 2006, about a year after I started this coaching business. Which means that, not only am I celebrating 1,000+ posts this year, but it will also be my fifth anniversary as a public speaking coach. What a year!

Thank you, readers, for continuing to show up, for continuing to comment, for continuing to ask me great questions which, in turn, become blog posts. It pleases me to know I'm not just talking to myself, and that some people are actually finding this blog helpful in their public speaking endeavors.

If you want to post your own public speaking discussion topics to talk about, head over to my Facebook page where things are a little more interactive.

Thank you for being here, and stay tuned for some advice from me and some other bloggers who've successfully maintained a blog of over 1,000 posts!
