Oh, and we’ve hit a milestone today: one thousand comments on Sillyverse’s blog posts and pages! I thank my readers, who always have such interesting comments.

A special thanks to the top six comment contributors, according to WordPress’s count:

crimsonprose (whose fiction blog with two running fantasy stories (one actually in another blog, but they get linked) is similarly named),

russell (whose fiction blog is the story Edward and Amelia Versus the Vampire King),

danapeleg1 (who doesn’t have a blog that I know of, but is a nice person who can translate back and forth between English and Hebrew),

Judy (whose photographic blog features Florida birds these days),

E. J. Barnes (sometimes illustrator here, with her own blog of her work as a cartoonist),

and L. Palmer (whose main blog, I think, is about “the legendary adventures of everyday life, musings on pop culture, and products of an over-prolific imagination”).

Thank you again!

About Brian Bixby

I enjoy history because it helps me understand people. I'm writing fiction for much the same reason.

    Many congrats on this milestone, Mr. Bixby, and I will strive — in the spirit of friendly competition — to wrest the number one spot from Crimsonprose 🙂 Many thanks also for the link to E&A! Two thousand, here we come!

  2. L. Palmer says:

    Congrats! I’m glad I can help build the comment count.
    And, the following conversations are always educational and worthwhile.

    Number One? But I only joined WP’s bloggers last November. Though I will say, yours was the first blog I opted to follow (though not the first to receive a comment.) At the same time, you were one of the first to comment on mine. It was on the subject of Dark Matter and Angels, I believe. It sometimes feels like the world has changed into something other, something better, since I first commented here. I thank you.
    And in reply to Russell: But of course my total is high. You must have noticed of me, I just have to have the last word! 🙂

      Sillyverse is not much older than crimsonprose, as my first post to this blog was on August 21, 2012. (There’s another reason to celebrate in 3 weeks!)

      Aye, I was quite bewildered/intrigued by what you were describing, and got responses back on my blog concerning systems of magic in return. We’ve passed under many a bridge since then. And I’ll add that I’m happy about it, too.

    Congrats on the 1K Milestone…truly happy to have been a little company on the WordPress road to there!

      And as a reward I get your pictures and discussions of science fiction and its history. 🙂

      By the way, picked up “Perdido Street Station” to read, after “Trillion . . .” of course.

      • Judy says:

        Oh I do hope you enjoy it as my brother seemed to take issues with it. I think it is one of the most original stories I have ever read and full of imagery and events of a kind that stay with you. Look forward to your review of Perdido once your stack of material to read gets ’round to that!!

    Indeed a milestone! I’ m honored, and I hope here for the next milestone! Although ironically, due to travel and connectivity problems first, and later tons of work (due to traveling) I’m still a bit behind reading MC and your blog. Apropos Hebrew, I am currently translating the Game of Thrones glossary…

    • Brian Bixby says:

      Well, I’ve been away for a week myself, Dana, so I’ve got catching up to do, too. Went to Glenn’s place in Maine.

      And I have to admit that although it’s a multimedia hit, the only thing I’ve read or seen of “Game of Thrones” was the mash-up of all the sex scenes that someone put together!
