Entertainment, Films, Books, Television…My Life, a little…

Wow, 400 Posts! That’s 100 More than the Spartans!


When I looked down and saw that my last post was the 400th one, I was shocked, surprised and not a little proud. I wanted to stand up and thrust my imaginary sword to the sky and yell manfully, “This is Mich-ael!”

All kidding aside, I am really surprised that I’ve managed to keep it up for so long. *and yes, I do know how rude that sounds, thank you* I had no idea that when I started blogging in 2011 that I’d keep writing and posting so religiously. It has become my newest addiction.

It is also my most satisfying endeavour. Through the blogging community, I’ve met some great people and read some great blogs. My follower count (a combination of three different blogs) now reaches over 175.  For someone who never thought he’d get one follower to now being within a gnat’s whisker of having 200, it’s mind-boggling.

Although I’ve reached the over 400 post mark, this one will be 401, I still have not really decided if I should branch out into different pages or not. I have a pretty eclectic range of blog posts. Film, which makes up the majority of my posts is closely followed by personal ruminations and philosophy. I have also done a lot of autobiographical posts as well as health, politics and the odd rant.

My blog title of MikesFilmTalk could be a little misleading I suppose, but as I do talk about film a lot, it seems fitting. My first ever blog was titled Random Thoughts for a Random World. It seemed fitting. Most of my original posts were just that, Random musings.

But as my first love is still writing, cinema and acting my current title seems apt enough.

I’m taking the long way around the barn again, I do apologise.

The point of this short blog post is to say thank you, again, friends and neighbours for your continued support; and for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and followed me? Bless you.

It is the follower’s, liker’s, and commenter’s who brighten my day. I hope I can continue to post at least daily, although I’ve posted several posts in one day in the past) and some days not posted at all.

I am learning a bit more about writing a blog and how to improve on it. I am also loosening up old creative muscles that I thought had atrophied through lack of use. If you are interested here is the first blog post that started me on my way to the over 400 that I’ve written and uploaded.

Here’s to the next 400!

  5. It’s amazing what a life-altering event can do to your free time and writing material. You’ve definitely been a busy bee lately.

    If you want ideas on organization, I’ve thought the recipes are becoming frequent enough that they might enjoy their own section: Munching with Mike or some other title that’s actually clever.

    Congratz, and keep writing. You and Meg have made me a regular blog reader, that’s for sure.

  6. It’s a great feeling, isn’t it? I quietly celebrated 400 a while back. It’s 500 that may be a bit noisier. Congrats, Mike!!
