Olly Writes

Woodwork, writing, walks, DIY and more!

#500

Having started this blog just over five-years ago now (August 2009), I became aware with my previous posting that this one was going to arrive at quite the credible milestone.

There have been times within the last year where I’ve feared as though my stream of content would somehow deteriorate. I’ve always worried that the recent absence of a workshop might encourage long-standing followers to turn the other way… But I’m delighted to see that many of you are still here reading, sharing and particularly to those who leave comments and send me private e-mails.

THANK YOU ALL.

I couldn’t have attained 500 posts here without your support. As much as I do write with a view towards my own psychological benefit, this blog would not be the same without your continued support and contribution. I’d been afraid to look beyond the trees and to show you that I make mistakes in the kitchen and how I seem to spend an almost-unhealthy portion of my weekends wandering around in the wilderness… And yet, the feedback I’ve received from you has been outstanding! I shall always keep this blog alive with the content flowing.

I look forward to writing another 500 posts and I’ll aim to complete that long before August 2019.

There’s one promise I shall make to myself from here on… To share more of my writing; to search and to find an inspiration to ignite the embers of the creative soul that survives deep within side. Two-years ago, I was enrolled on a creative writing course in the evenings. I’m sorry to say that I haven’t done a lot with what I learned there. I promise to try. I do believe.

Thank you very much once more for reading, subscribing, following, commenting, sharing, liking and, well, all the rest! 🙂

    Congratulations on producing half a millennium posts. I have only done three so far so my respect goes out to you Olly. I am one of the guys who started because of the workshop posts but enjoy many of your others. Keep up the good work.

I welcome your thoughts.
