1000



On Sunday (yesterday), Underland to Wonderland hit 1000 posts. Wellll. It technically hit a while ago but I deleted a couple old posts a few months back and so now there are officially 1000 posts in my little time capsule, online diary, thingy-m-bob blog. Crazy.

I'm not a one for making a fuss when I hit a certain amount of page views or when I reach a blogiversary, but I thought 1000 posts was pretty cool and wanted to write a quick post to commemorate it.

5 facts about Underland to Wonderland:
As of today, this blog is 5 years, 5 months, 25 days old.
The original blog name was a mouthful! - 'Once Upon A Time, They Lived Happily Ever After'.
I have changed the layout majorly no less than 10 times.
Everything layout, graphics etc wise has always been (& always will be) 100% done by me.
This is my 3rd blog and the first one to stick and make it over 2 years.


5 Most popular posts of all time:


5 reasons I love my blog:
So many memories! Almost every day out, trip away and holiday from 2012 to present day is documented here.
It has kept me company and given me purpose from being unemployed, employed, down, happy and every time in-between.
Cliche, but I have actually made a couple friends over the years. One or two of which are now (I hope) life long, very good friends.
I can work on it no matter the time, day, month, weather. It's a 365 day hobby that constantly develops multiple skills.
It was organically born and has stayed true to it's original purpose. I make 0 money from it and am not bothered about growth, DA and all that rubbish.


5 Fave Series I've run, Past and Present:


5 Hopes for the future:
To continue documenting important moments and special days as a permanent time capsule.
Start incorporating a few more of my older style posts.
Try to find time each week to comment on more of my friend's blogs.
Eventually (after hoping and trying for the past 2 years) reach 1000 bloglovin' followers.
Get paid minimum wage for every hour I put into working on it ;) Just kidding. Be nice though eh?


5 Best trips/experiences/places I have documented:
Exploring Edinburgh  (Multiple trips to different museums and tourist attractions)


It's been nice to sit for a few many hours and look through my own posts to reminisce so to say. Some people reach 1000 posts within a year, some might not reach it until 10 years in, but 5.5 years in and I'm here. In 2011/2012 I posted as and when I liked but then a couple years in I started posting 3 days a week and finally, in 2014, my 4 day a week schedule came into effect and I have very rarely (if ever) missed a post on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Sunday since.
I love my little blog and hope to carry it on for many years to come. Here's to another 1000 posts :)

  3. Yay! Happy 1000 Posts! I love your blog Danielle, it's one of my favourites as each time I come back I always end up with a big smile on my face. I love your Hopes for the Future here too, I'm sure you'll hit those 1000 Bloglovin' Followers soon, and I would definitely love to see more of your older style photos too as your photography always inspires me. I love that you've always done all of your blog graphics yourself too, I love it when bloggers show off their own style and creativity with their blog design. I need to do more of this as I think I rely on things like PicMonkey too often! Though I just managed to use Paint a while back to use some of my own photos in my header, so I'm slowly branching out! :D Loved this post, and here's to a 1000 more! - Tasha

  6. Woohoo, congratulations on 1000 posts! What an achievement. I can't wait till I get to that milestone, but it will be some way off for me as I'm currently on 300ish. I didn't even realise we have the same posting schedule - Mo, We, Fr and Su! x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    1. Thanks so much!! Oh I'm sure it'll come quicker than you think, especially with 4 posts a week! I thought we were similar timings haha. I do read your blog even if I don't get to comment much :/ I'm sorry. I'm adjusting to having 3 jobs just now but really going to crack down in the next week with a schedule for specific time to comment etc!
