300 Posts - A Promise Made is a Promise Kept


This is my 300th post on Active Rain, and I finally figured out recently why there is a disparity between the number on my profile and the number which shows up on the dashboard.  When I first started, I made a few posts directly to various groups, and those don't count on your dashboard total nor do they garner any points. 

At any rate, when I did my 200th post about 2.5 months ago, I mentioned that I would be using a graphic from the movie "300" when I hit this particular milestone.  My friend Krista Fuchs commented:

That's awesome congratulations!  I can't wait until you get to 300, that movie was awesome!  I never saw so many ripped abs in my life!

Since I am a man of my word, you can see the result above to the left.

Now, here are some facts about the number 300 that I felt were worthy of including here:

  • 300 is a perfect bowling score
  • 300 is the lowest FICO credit score possible
  • The #300 movie on the all-time US box office chart is "The Patriot"
  • Peter King of Sports Illustrated ranked the Top 500 Players in the NFL this year - Tank Johnson (Dallas Cowboys) placed at #300
  • On the Rolling Stone list of the Top 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, Madonna's "Like a Prayer" placed in the 300th spot
  • There is a vehicle called the Chrysler 300
  • According to one radio station list I located online, Def Leppard's "Photograph" was the 300th most requested song by rock station DJs

Thanks for indulging me for a minute.  Also, the following paragraphs appeared (with some minor tweaking) in my 200th post.  I didn't see much that was worth changing.

I wanted to also take a second to thank all of my subscribers!  There are 350 of you as this is being written. I am so thankful to those of you who continue to support my efforts here, and to those of you who have referred friends and family to me.  I always try to handle referrals like gold. 

Active Rain continues to amaze me, and I am happy to have made numerous friends during my time here.  Again, thank you for reading and God bless you.

Next stop - #400!
