Swamp Gas Status Update

Posted by AlienCG on July 17, 2009

Today is my record-breaking 50th post in a row (ok, 49 in a row was the real record breaker) and I thought I would take a moment to let you know what’s coming up on the site.  I have thought about my next countdown (there are only three weeks left on this one) and finally made a decision.  That will be outlined below.  There are some big things coming up for me and in the geek community.  I hope to keep up on all of it.

The Trivial Tuesday answer is, the Apollo command module callsign was Columbia.  Laura B. got it correct, so congratulations to her.  I already have a good trivia question for this coming week.

My next countdown will be my favorite inventions and discoveries of all-time.  This may end up having some similarities to the Science Minds Countdown, but it should be interesting to say the least.  If you have any suggestions for countdowns, or you just want me to strain my brain, let me know.  I like the idea of interactivity when it comes to the blogging world.

Sunday should be, if I don’t double post today or tomorrow, be the 300th post on Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections.  Next month will be the one year anniversary of this blog and I would love to figure out how to get 365 posts between now and then, but I doubt it will happen.  I did make 68 posts in these past 50 days, so I think that says a lot for the topic.

Next week, Monday to be exact, I will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of one of the greatest moments in history.  July 20, 1969, of course, was the day that Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first human beings to step onto an extraterrestrial body.  I will, of course, be posting my usual garden post on Monday, but I will also have a post on the moon landing.

So that’s what coming up in the future.  Trust me, I’m just getting started and I’m enjoying what I’m doing.  Remember, feel free to e-mail with suggestions, compliments, insults, idle threats or tech questions.  I enjoy hearing from people and helping them whenever I can.  Have a good weekend.

  1. Did you hear that NASA messed up with the original live footage of the moon landing? Someone taped over it!!!! And they had to bring in Hollywood specialists to clean up and reclaim the footage. I am stunned and horrified. It was on Y!News. (I can’t verify that it was true.) I immediately thought of you and wondered if you knew.

    I have so much fun here at your blog. So much information. So much brain food. You are good to us aliencg! Yay! for your 300th post… and here’s to many more!

    I am really enjoying the sort of blogging renaissance thing you have going on. I’m looking forward to all that you have coming up.

    I have some threatening statements to make to you that I will pass along in a private email so as not to alarm your other fans. haha!

    And suggestions…hmmm…you are a blogger who is not afraid of a bit of controversy. Perhaps you could do a feature about some of the greatest hoaxes of all time. I bet a few come to mind right away. Anyway, just a thought.

    Keep it going. I’ve been slacking on my blog lately, but I think we all have those peaks and valleys.
