1000 | Kylie Purtell - Capturing Life

1000

There are some things so big you just don't know what to do with them.

Like big stuffed toys. Seriously. What are you supposed to do with those things?

Some big things are so big that they deserve something big to compliment them.

Like a 1000th blog post. Yes that's right. This is my 1000th blog post!


In almost 4 years I have published 1000 posts. When you add that to the numerous draft posts that have never seen the light of day?

Well, that's a lot of words and pictures. And spelling and grammar mistakes!

So when I was thinking about what to do for my 1000th post, I thought that something this big needed something equally as big to go with it.

But what?

I thought I could take a shitload of photos, and make it my most epic photo-laden post of all time, but that would probably take forever to load on everyones devices and probably make the internet explode.

I thought I could write and write and write and make it my most longest post ever. But that would probably be pretty boring for most people and use up all of my precious blogging ideas in one go!

I thought I could go out and do something ridiculously awesome and dangerous, take lots of photos of it, and then give you the world's best account of the world's best stunt. But that Felix Baumgartener guy beat me to it apparently. Bastard!

I thought I could host the most massive, the most epic of big giveaways but then that would either take time and effort trying to find people to give me shit to giveaway, or it would cost me money buying shit to giveaway. And who can be bothered.

So I thought and I thought about it. I thought about it for weeks. 

What would be big enough to put in a post with a milestone of such big importance?

And then it came to me. The perfect thing. The biggest of big things.
Baby Purtell #2.
Arriving July 2013
Surely that has to be big enough?

Linking this post up as always with Essentially Jess. Because it's Tuesday. And I Blog on Tuesday. Do you?

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, but I was plastered from that 4 year old party- you know how it is when you have too much red cordial :) I am thrilled about your news. I think Mia will be a great older sister. Hope your pregnancy is going smoothly and your not suffering too much from morning sickness. It's especially hard when you have to keep up with a busy 1 year old. I can't wait to see what you come up with for your 2000th post! Twins? ;)
