CSN:AFU Week Twenty-Five


Technically This Is My 100th Post On CSN:AFU

But a few months ago I imported posts from… my Fear The Seeds and [my other blog] blogs, so this is really my 81st CSN:AFU post. But, seeing as how the counter will be turning over to 100 when this post is published I thought a few stats may be in order.

Since I started this blog, in it’s current format, I’ve averaged 13.5 responses per post and honestly, they’ve all been worth reading. The first person to respond on CSN:AFU was Nita from “A Wide Angle Of India” on January 24, 2007, at EST3.26am — it was on my original “Aboot Page”. To date I’ve had 224 responses on my Aboot Pages. My first Official CSN:AFU Post was “The First Ten Things You Need To Know Aboot Canada”, and the first response was from Louise (aka: the former Queen Minx).

I’ve also been the recipient of three awards, or tags, from people I respect as artists and bloggers (even before they gave me the awards). One for a post aboot the differences between America and Europe in terms of immigration and religious tolerance, one for my music section and one for CSN:AFU as a whole. So here we are… happy 81st to me.

This Week In General:

I’ve spent most of this week avoiding… cleaning up. A friend of mine has come over from Finland for two fun packed weeks of something, and she’ll be here in my little village for a couple of days. I’m hoping she’ll stop by before she gets bored and leaves. Hopefully I’ll have the dishes done before she gets here.

I restarted my Fear The Seeds blog as a place where I can put my photos, and discuss techniques. So far it has been pretty successful, more so than I thought it’d be at this point. I’m trying to post four or five per week.

I also started another blog, I’m not sure it’s entirely ready yet. I am, however, going to keep it separate from Cultural, [other] and Fear. What else… I had lunch with my grandfather twice, which was great, and he bought me ice cream on Friday. Which was also nice. He took the week off from Golfing because of the heat. My grandfather, at 85, can break 100 on eighteen holes on pretty much any course in the area and, except when it’s over 40C with the humidity, he plays three games per week. Last summer he played 97 games of golf, which was down from 116 the year before.

And that’s pretty much it… I got involved in a discussion on [my other blog] that took up most of my writing time, and the new Fear The Seeds site kind of ate into my blogging time, but once my FinnFriend takes off I’ll concentrate on getting more done here.


Photo Of My Week:

I’m not sure what that flower is doing reaching around like that but it looks slightly pornographic.

  1. Dang, sir, you’ve been busy. Now if only I could have as nice of traffic as you!

    Actually wanted to find out if you could recommend a new theme for Mercurial. It’s been there for nearly a year I believe and I’m feeling change a-brewin’.

  2. Gabriel. says:

    Actually I’ve been slacking like it was 1992. I’ve had a string of visitors over the past few months — including one from Mr. Deap D. Pression — so my numbers have been halved. But all of that’s over with so, after a few hours of sleep, I’ll be posting again.

    I’ll be over in a short while to offer any advice my groggy brain can muster.
