2000th Post!

Here we are at the SheWalksSoftly 2000th post! Let’s celebrate by looking at the predictions a German chocolate company had for the year 2000, circa 1900.

We are walking on water (supported by balloon devices, of course):

And here we fly like bats and birds!

The boat-train plows through the ocean…

I want to thank my most frequent commenters (in order of frequency):
A Wren’s Life (You will get a prize in the mail!)
Real Monstrosities
My Pink Planet
The Headless Hearseman
And thanks to the creative, lovely Colleen V. (for whom I don’t have a site!).

I’ve gotten wonderful links and information from readers here. I’ve never promoted this blog anywhere and I make no money off it, but if you’ve enjoyed the site please spread the word in some small way so we like-minded oddballs may have a more enjoyable place to convene on the interwebs for another 2000 posts…and beyond! Thank you all!

  3. Congratualtions and thank you for providing what I consider one of the best blogs on the internet! Now I like that we are walking on water, with some kind of boat-like shoe, but we have balloons that are somehow holding us up yet not carrying use any higher than the water? I understand that this was over 100 years ago but come on Germans, you know how a balloon works, right??

  4. Thank you for entertaining the notion of your blog, and taking 2000 posts to show the world ~your world~!

  8. Congratulations on 2000! What a fabulous achievement. (I struggle to get 10 posts a month – Eek.) I’ve love your perspective and tireless effort which may surprise many readers. Blogs are a lot of work. Great blogs, like yours, are works of art that demonstrate a true passion for a subject – and your posts are so rich with detail and images! This takes countless hours of dedication. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

      Thank YOU for this thoughtful comment. This blog does take a bit of effort, but it’s just a small platform for the countless things I enjoy. I always have hundreds of links in my “to post” folder that I’ll never get to…if only I could post more! I appreciate you visiting this site. 🙂

  9. YAY!!! I’m the winner? Well of course I am because I LOVE your blog the most. Thanks for adding my link. My site has picked up some activity because of you. Thanks guys for visiting!!! You are my blogger hero! Congratulations on your 2000th blog! You put my 14 blogs to shame…BUT! I have hope. Maybe someday I will reach 2000…but I kind of doubt it. I’ll be happy with 200. I can’t wait for your next 2000!!! 🙂

    • shewalkssoftly Says:

      You WILL reach 2000. You’re a busy woman (which limits blogging time), but you’ve got worlds to share with us, my angel!

  10. Congratulations on your 2000th post! You are one of my favourite blog discoveries. I’m a freak at heart and all your posts are absolutely delicious, at times macabre, and always fascinating. I love all things vintage, unique and kitschy so it’s a true delight to visit your site.

  11. Thank you so much for absolutly every single one of the 2000 posts thus far. I so look forward to the next two thousand.
