“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 …

“Remember your pleases and thank yous”

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 June, I will give you chances to revisit posts from my blog’s fourth year. Today, I will give you a chance to revisit the last blog post from my blog’s fourth year. It’s from August of 2018.

Today, I’d like to talk about a blog post, which is entitled “‘Remember your pleases and thank yous.'” One of my teachers said that quote whenever we were downstairs at the Heinz History Center back in the 2000s. The quote hasn’t really stuck with me too much, until recently. When I went to school, I didn’t like it whenever people said “please” and/or “thank you” to me too much, but now, as an adult, I’m urging people to say them to me regularly … and I say them at least 50 percent of the time. In fact, I liked the quote so much that I accidentally said it to a TV personality on Facebook Live just last Summer. It sort of slipped out. I apologized to the TV personality on Twitter not long after my “slip-up” … and, luckily, it went well. This quote is a fantastic quote, to say the least.

Now, this July, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s fifth year … and some of them may be interesting.

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 28th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

As we prepare to wrap up my blog’s fourth year together, I would like to talk about a quote that will remain with me for a long time.  I first heard it during a field trip to the Heinz History Center more than 10 years ago.  The quote is … “Remember your pleases and thank yous.”  It was actually one of my teachers who said the quote back then … and it hasn’t really stuck with me too much … until now.

Up until a few years ago, I wasn’t too crazy about people saying “please” and “thank you” to me a lot, but nowadays, I’m urging my friends and even my relatives to say those words to me as often as they possibly can.  This way, they can have more respect than they once had.  Now, I’m starting to say those words at least 50 percent of the time. …

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 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 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 …

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.

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.

Beginning this Monday, August 13th, I will start celebrating my blog’s fourth anniversary by giving you statistics about my blog.  The blog will turn four years old in exactly two weeks.  That event will occur on August 24th.  I plan on starting my blog’s fifth year on August 26th.

Enjoy your day and enjoy your weekend!

We have completed one week of 2018 already!

I really don’t have too much to say today, so I’m just gonna say that we have completed one week of the year already.  It seems like we just started 2018 yesterday.

In fact, I was able to wear my cardigan sweater for a few hours yesterday since it was very cold outside.  I snapped three photos of myself wearing the sweater while I was wearing it yesterday.

We have 358 days left in the year.  Enjoy your day!

Joseph’s 525th Blog Post

Today, my blog is reaching another important milestone.  Well, it’s not really important, but, in a way, it’s important to me.  Today, I’m writing my 525th blog post in my blog.  I was celebrating my 500th blog post a few weeks ago … and I had some energy left over for me to celebrate my 525th blog post today.

This blog post will not be about anything specific; however, it will be about some of the best things that make my blog one of the best blogs in the world.  It may not be the best blog in the world, but it could be one of the best blogs in the world.  My blogs are full of the best things and people that really interest me the most.

Let me just say thank you for liking my blog for the past 2 1/4 years or so.  I will continue to give you guys some more fantastic blog posts for as long as I can do so.

I did a complete 180 just by changing the way that I see things

Since I left high school for the last time ever as a student nearly 8 years ago, my life has slowly improved somewhat. I still go there once or twice a year to attend various events, such as the Mardi Gras, which I will be going to later this week. I will actually talk about that in one of my blogs later this week. In today’s blog, I’m going to talk about doing a complete 180 just by changing the way that I see and do things on a daily basis. I have also matured somewhat in the last 8 years. When I was in high school, I wasn’t as polite as I am now. Sure, I was polite back then, but I wasn’t very polite then. I would say “please” and “thank you” on a few occasions whenever I was in school, but now I say them almost all of the time whenever I’m going to public places. Whenever I was in high school, I didn’t watch certain programs on TV, like reality shows, but now I watch some reality shows every week. Those are just a few changes that I’ve made to my lifestyle since I left high school back in 2007. Will I be able to make more changes to my lifestyle? Yes, but it will take some time for me to make those changes.
