Avoiding the 300 Cliché

At some point yesterday BLMA clocked up its 300th follower, Extraordinarii. Welcome to you and indeed to all the recent new additions to the Blog. As I've said countless times before, it's always good to know I'm not talking to myself and the conversations that spring up here are a constant encouragement to me to "keep buggering on" (as Churchill would have said).

Of course it is de rigure amongst the Blogging community to mark each milestone like this with a suitable post and picture accompaniment. But 300 is a tricky number because everyone (and I mean everyone) has used the title graphics from the film of the same name to illustrate their announcement. It has become something of a cliché and I'm determined not to fall into the trap....

[30 minutes of trawling the internet for a picture to illustrate '300']

...damn it, I give up.

Thanks for following BLMA and I look forward to many more conversations in the months ahead.

  8. I was just watching scenes from that movie about how they said 'we will blot out the sun,' before the Persian archers launched their arrows.
