Ode to Neil: What is 1% of 2,000 posts?
I've been blogging with Neil for about a year now wondering how the heck is he managing to crank out such bounty with his sly wit and traveler's know-how. Since the number of posts Gading manages to put out in a day are sometimes hard to keep up with, I thought I'd give you a sampling of my favorites of Neil's.
Of course, like he wrote when he signed off today from Gadling on his last post--his 2,000th, I'm sure we haven't read the last of Neil. However, I thought that someone who has 2,000 posts in two years certainly could have a post dedicated to him. It's not exactly the same as the trophy-like statue of the Greek god Hermes pictured here, but hopefully it will suffice. Hermes is linked to travel among other things.
(Neil, to turn this into a real statue, you can print out a copy of the picture, carefully cut around the outline of the statue like a paper doll, glue it onto a piece of tag board, cut around that, affix it to a toothpick with tape, stick one end of the toothpick in a bit of playdough or something and perhaps you can get it to stand up.)
Statues aside, this is what 1% of 2,000 looks like--20 posts. But, first, here's my all time favorite written for our April Fool's Day bonanza in 2007. Bush Lifts Mark Cuban Travel Ban
These are culled since April of 2007. I picked these because they either made me laugh, inspired me to write my own post, I learned something I didn't know, brought back some of my own travel memories or gave me useful information that I used. You can decide which is which.
