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 …

My Blog Is 4 1/2 Years Old Today

4 1/2 years ago, I started my blog, which is called “Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things” … and I wrote two posts whenever I started using my blog on August 24, 2014.  Obviously, in exactly six months, I will celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary.  Between now and then, I will give you many surprises as we begin the second half of my blog’s fifth year.

I will also show you give blog posts that I wrote down on or around a certain date in previous years … and I will also give you a chance to revisit some of my most popular blog posts from the past five years.  Some of them may surprise you a little bit.  I will also show you the blog posts that I wrote down to start and end a certain year also.  For example, I will show you the first blog post that I wrote down to start a certain certain year of my blog … and I will show you the last blog post that I wrote down to wrap up a certain year of my blog.

Finally, in August, I will give you my blog’s statistics, like I always do … and, before I celebrate my blog’s fifth year, I will talk about the five top blog posts of all time.  Then, I will celebrate the big milestone by writing a big blog post for you guys on August 24th.

Thank you all for supporting my blog over the past 4 1/2 years.  You guys are all fantastic!

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

Joseph’s 1,000th Blog Post

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is it.  Today is a big day for me and for my blog.  I am writing my 1,000th blog post on my blog … and, as I’ve been saying for weeks now, it could be about a person, a place or a thing.  Well, after giving this a lot of thought. I’ve decided that my 1,000th blog post will be about a person.

FB_IMG_1542273586651
This is Joseph’s 1,000th blog post. He has this sign to prove it.

My 1,000th blog post will be about a classy friend of mine … and this friend is cool, casual and classy in many ways.  The person’s name is Justin McKean.  I first became friends with him while I was at South Fayette High School back on January 23, 2007.  He was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I was at the school back then.  For nearly 12 years now, Justin has been a terrific friend of mine … and I bumped into him several times since then.  I bumped into him at McSummerfest in July of 2016.  He’s able to be cool, casual and classy on so many levels … and I often get my fashion and wardrobe ideas from him.  Thank you, Justin, for being a terrific friend of mine … and thank you for allowing me to talk about you in my 1,000th blog post.

“Captain Cool” is the “epitome of cool!”

Today, Chuck Lazzini, who is known as “Captain Cool,” is celebrating a birthday … and he also checks out my blog whenever he has time.  He’s also an occasional follower of this blog.  Well, anyway, he’s one of the coolest and classiest friends that I have ever known … and we both have the purple Mount Union Raiders T-shirts and the green South Fayette Lions Lacrosse pullover tops.

This past Saturday, we were able to wear both of our tops with class while we were at our respective locations … and, after seeing him wearing the green lacrosse pullover top in a photo over the weekend, I thought that he was, indeed, the “epitome of cool.”  So, as you might have guessed, “Captain Cool” is the “epitome of cool!”

I would just like to say “happy birthday” to a cool and classy friend.  Happy birthday, “Captain Cool!”
