My Thursday Thirteen this week happens to coincide with my 500th post to this blog so I thought I’d combine the two events. Here are 13 posts from the 500 posts by Mark Caldwell about having Too Many Ideas…

  1. My First Post which isn’t particularly exciting: Staring at a Blank Page.
  2. Favourite picture: A reed in the fog.
  3. After years of struggling to create a logo for impworks finally making one I like.
  4. Relaunching my impworks web site in June last year.
  5. My favourite article on writing I’ve written: Characters on the Couch.
  6. Post with the most comments: Thursday Thirteen #8
  7. My favourite film review since starting this blog Hot Fuzz
  8. Favourite random stuff post: The Bank of England
  9. Shameless promotion for a friend: Nimues Price
  10. Not so much a single post as a variety of mentions of my short story become novel work in progress: Night in the Sidhe.
  11. 12. Favourite TT: About Toasted Cheese Sandwiches because the feedback was so good.
  12. Most traffic post: Vue Python for Beginners – a tutorial on using Python in Vue Infinite.
  13. My first Python Script for Vue – I didn’t expect these to be such a big part of what goes on here but I’m not complaining that they are proving popular


In a fortnight I’m looking to do a TT of 13 other people’s favourite posts from their blogs. If you leave a link to yours in the comments this week I’ll add it to the selection I’ve got to pick from.

Brilliant recycling of blog posts! Damn you - as if i'm don't have enough blogs to hop, now you must tempt me with multiple posts. EVIL!

SlipOfAGirl Thursday, June 21st, 2007

A very cool idea for TT! (When I hit 500 I'll have to remember that myself.)

Congrats on hitting 500 -- here's to another 500 more. :)

Oops...I forgot to leave my favorite post from my blog:

My favorite post on my blog is my current Thursday Thirteen, with all the pictures.

Norma Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Good job, and thanks for stopping by. I don't know how many entries I have because I have 11 blogs! Probably over 4,000.

One of my favorites must be this one about women and money--I blogged it twice.

Congrats on passing the milestone. Hit Fuzz really is a great fun film.

Happy T13

gabriella hewitt Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Congrats on reaching 500! I think I have 300 plus to go to get to that milestone. And I remember the Cheese Sandwich post. I also enjoyed the post where you described yourself as you would if you were a character.

Happy TT!

Tilly Greene Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Congrats! The first daunting blank page has grown :-)

Oh, and I thought Hot Fuzz was hilarious...why oh why can't more flicks like this one be made?

Woo-Hoo! Five hunderd posts is awesome.

Congrats.

RE #11...I think you might be able to expect a TT on the Tomato Sandwich from me this summer when my wonderful friends with gardens start sharing their bounty.

Titania Starlight Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Congrats on your 500th post. I have a way to go yet. I would have been there myself but I had to delete my old blog due to a crazy person. Oh well.

Great T13!

Nancy J. Bond Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Congratulations on your 500th post! This is a great idea for a TT. :) Here's one of my favorite posts:

And yay, a Jung man. I knew I liked you.

Happy TT, and congrats on 500!.

Interesting. I remember a couple of these posts! My TT is posted too.

Susan Helene Gottfried Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

Congrats on 500 posts!

Funnily enough, I listed three of my favorites in my own TT this week, so head on over and check 'em out. Death by Cheese is the shortest.

#12 is why your blog keeps ringing a bell for me. D'oh. I'm so bad at putting things together out of context.

Happy TT.

Tink Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

Congrats on your 500th post! Hmmm..., my favourite post..? I'll have to think about that one.
My TT shares 13 things about Litha (Midsummer). Joyous Litha, happy TT!
