Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For September 2019

Can you believe it?  My blog’s sixth year is now underway … and I’ll be giving you some fantastic blog posts in the month of September.  I will give my features a break in September, but they will return in October.  So, let me tell you which blog posts I’ll be writing down in September.

I will write my 1,200th blog post in September.  It will be about one of my friends … and it will be entitled “Joseph’s 1,200th Blog Post Is Full Of Swag!”

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Had A Denim Jacket From Guess For One Year!”  I will talk about my denim jacket, which is from Guess.  I have owned it for almost one year.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Seeing clouds in my neighborhood.”  For several weeks, I snapped some photos of the clouds that were in the skies above National Hill.  You’ll see them in a blog in September.  The clouds may surprise you.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Say hello to the barbers of Fella’s Barbershop!”  I will tlak about the barbers who work at Fella’s Barbershop … and they are Adam Stoffella and Hunter Dorazio.  There is also a third barber at that barber shop, but the third barber was not there whenever I went to Fella’s Barbershop a few weeks ago.

I will give my computer a break for a few days in September.  I’ll be doing that from 7 p.m. on Friday, September 6th, until 5 a.m. on Sunday, September 15th.  I will give you two blog posts that week.  On September 8th, I will write a post entitled “Thank you for following my blog for over 5 years!”  I will be thanking the people who have been following my blog for at least five years in this blog post.  Then, on Thursday, September 12th, I will write a blog post entitled “Thank you for following my blog for three to five years!”  In this post, I will thank the people who have followed my blog for three to five years.

I hope you will check out at least one of my blog posts in September.  They may look interesting to you.

“Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things” Is Five Years Old Today!

Today is a very big day for this blog, which is called “Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things.”  This blog is now officially five years old.  It seems like this blog started yesterday … and you have made it grow up into the blog it is today.

“Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things” is five years old today! The blog started on August 24, 2014.
Thank you for allowing my blog to become a classy blog over the past five years.

Since I started my blog five years ago, I have written nearly 1,200 posts on here … and I will write more blog posts for you guys for as long as I am able to do so.  I probably won’t do this forever, but who knows?

I have 180 followers on my blog … and I would like to thank them for following my blog regularly.  Some of them do it here on WordPress.com … and some of them do it via e-mail.  I don’t have time to thank all of my blog’s followers today, so I will do my best to thank them in several of my blog posts throughout my blog’s sixth year.

All in all, I would like to say thank you for allowing me to give you some fantastic blog posts over the past five years.  You have been able to help me let it grow gracefully from a simple blog to a very classy blog.  I have talked about some very interesting things in my posts … and my mission is to keep the people who check out my blog regularly both informed and entertained.  I will continue to do just that in the future.

Now, tomorrow, I will begin my blog’s sixth year … and I already have some topics to begin a new year of this blog with.  I can’t tell you what I’ll be talking about in the posts yet.  I will give you some great blog posts in the coming days.

Now, for the last time, I will give you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around a certain date in previous years.  I was able to do it in all of my blog posts throughout my blog’s fifth year.  Now that my blog’s fifth year is coming to an end, I won’t be doing this for you guys anymore.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, which ends today, I would like to give you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around August 24th in previous years …

Celebrating My Blog’s Fifth Year: Supporting My Blog On Social Media

Over the past five years, thousands of people have supported my blog in one form or another on Social Media.  In the Spring of 2019, Google Plus shut down for the last time … and, as a result, I was no longer able to share the posts with my friends on Google Plus, so I had to start sharing it with my friends on LinkedIn.  Last year, at around this time, I said I would share my posts with my friends on LinkedIn at some point during my blog’s fifth year … and, boy, was I right!  I am now sharing my posts to my followers on LinkedIn.  Of course, I’m still sharing my posts to my friends on Facebook and Twitter.

I have 657 friends on Facebook, 528 followers on Twitter and 537 friends on LinkedIn.  180 people are following my blog here on WordPress.com.

My posts have been shared on Social Media 387 times over the past five years.  It has been shared on Facebook 299 times … and it has been shared on Twitter 43 times.

Next time, I will talk about liking my blog posts.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I would like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around August 14th in previous years …

Celebrating My Blog’s Fifth Anniversary: Joseph’s longest-running followers

As of today, my blog has been followed by 173 people.  Now, today, as I continue to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary, I’m going to tell you about my blog’s longest-running followers.  Again, I apologize in advance if these statistics confuse you a little bit, so I will do my best to break these statistics up for you guys in a clear manner.

When it comes to people who are following my blog on WordPress.com, the longest-running follower on there is Kendell F. Person.  He has been following my blog for four years and four months.

Six of my followers are following my blog via e-mail.  Now, half of my followers have been able to follow it longer than anyone else via e-mail … and they have done is for four years and 11 months.  Now, Timothy McGrogan started following my blog via e-mail on August 30, 2014 … and Jennifer Buzzatto and Sheryl Papakie started following my blog via e-mail on August 26, 2014.

Now, at this point in time, it’s hard for me to say exactly who has been following my blog the longest.  Right now, it’s a toss-up between Jennifer Buzzatto and Sheryl Papakie.  They both started following my blog on August 26, 2014.

Next time, I will tell you how many words I have written in my blog posts over the past five years.  The statistics may surprise you a little bit.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 29th in previous years …

Say hello to Dom Lazzini

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, throughout the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will let you revisit a post from May of 2019 … and it is entitled “Say hello to Dom Lazzini.”

On May 4, 2019, I went to South Fayette Stadium for the first time since I went to South Fayette High School in the 2000s. I went to a lacrosse game with one of my relatives late that morning. I wore my green South Fayette Lions Lacrosse pullover to the game … and my friend, Chuck Lazzini, wore his green top to the game as well. That was sort of planned. We also wore the tops to South Fayette Fire Hall just over two months earlier. Anyway, I bumped into Chuck Lazzini’s son, Dom, while I was there … and Dom was nice enough to appear in a photo with both me and Chuck while I was at South Fayette Stadium. Dom was literally surrounded by two classy people that day … and meeting Dom in person is an experience that I won’t soon forget. He is one of the classiest people that I have ever known.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 17th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Over the weekend, I saw a lacrosse game at South Fayette Stadium … and I really enjoyed it, even though one of South Fayette’s Lacrosse teams lost by one point in overtime.  I still like South Fayette’s Lacrosse team a lot.

I bumped into one of this blog’s followers, Chuck Lazzini, while I was at the game … and we both had our green lacrosse pullovers on while we were there.  Also, while I was at the game, I bumped into Chuck’s son, Dom.  Dom is a very classy person.  He’s also a classy lacrosse player.  He played for South Fayette’s lacrosse team in the past … and now he plays for Mount Union’s lacrosse team, which is located in Ohio.  I also wore my Mount Union shirt underneath of my top … and Chuck wore a Mount Union hat that morning.

I’m Getting Ready To Celebrate My Blog’s Fifth Anniversary

This week, I am giving my computer a break, but I will be giving you some interesting blog posts this week.  I will start using my computer again at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 16th.

This Summer, my blog will be celebrating its fifth anniversary…and I will be celebrating it for one month.  I will start celebrating this milestone on July 24th … and it will all lead up to my blog’s fifth anniversary, which will occur on August 24th.  Let me tell you how I’ll be celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary this Summer.

On July 24th, I will give you the top posts from each of my blog’s features.

On July 25th, I will tell you about the multi-part blog posts that I wrote down over the past five years.

On July 26th, I will give you the poll questions that I asked you guys in some of my blog posts.

On July 28th, I will talk about my blog’s features and I will tell you how many posts have used my features.

On July 29th, I will tell you which people have been following my blog the longest.

On July 30th, I will tell you how many words are in the posts that I have been writing down over the past five years.

On July 31st, I will tell you about my “lesser-known” blog posts.  Since there are so many “lesser-known” posts on my blog, I will save you time by telling you how many of my posts have been seen just one time since I wrote them down.

From August 4th until August 8th, I will talk about each of my blog’s years.  I will talk about my blog’s first year on August 4th, I will talk about my blog’s second year on August 5th, I will talk about my blog’s third year on August 6th, I will talk about my blog’s fourth year on August 7th and I will talk about my blog’s fifth year on August 8th.  I’ll tell you how many times my blog was seen in each of those years … and I’ll tell you how many posts I wrote down in each of those years.

From August 12th until August 15th and from August 19th until August 22nd, I will give you my blog’s statistics in eight of my blog posts.

Finally, on August 24th, I will celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary by writing a rather big blog post for you guys.  I will basically just thank you guys for supporting my blog over the past five years.  I may throw in a surprise or two for you guys in the post as well.

I hope you will be able to join me this Summer as we prepare to celebrate my blog’s fifth year.  Of course, it will be full of surprises!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around June 12th in previous years …

The “Classy” Test

For just over three years, “Mr. Classy” has been able to be as classy as possible.  Today, “Mr. Classy” wants to bring you “The ‘Classy’ Test.”  This test is to see if you’re as classy as “Mr. Classy” is.  So, without further ado, let the test begin.

I’m gonna ask you three questions in this blog post … and these questions will allow you to see if you are as classy as “Mr. Classy” is.

Question Number One: Are you able to wear a jacket or a sweater with class regularly?

Question Number Two: Do you say “please” and “thank you” to your friends and your relatives at least 50% of the time?

Question Number Three: Is your hair pointing upward a little bit towards the front?

If you answered at least one of the questions truthfully, chances are you might be as classy as “Mr. Classy” is.  Of course, you might be classy in some ways, even if you were unable to answer these questions.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around March 24th in previous years …
