Well folks, this is it … my 1,000th home channel blog post for the Mother Nature Network. Last year when I published my 500th post it seemed like a super big deal but 1,000? This is pretty special.

Instead of reporting on a new story to celebrate this milestone, I’d like to take a moment to give thanks — it is the season, after all — not only to my readers who keep coming back for the latest and greatest developments in green home-land but to all of the eco-minded architects, designers, builders, gardeners, homeowners, planners, business owners, editors, innovators, influencers, taste-makers, and game-changers for giving me something to blog about. I couldn’t do it without you.

And more thanks to my patient and perceptive editorial overlords at MNN for giving this green lifestyle blogger an actual venue to post 1,000 times over again. I look forward to posting 1,000 times more.

As always, please feel free to drop a line in the comments section if I've posted on something that you like, don’t like, want to see more of, want to see less of, or if you just want to say hello.

And be sure to follow me on Twitter if you don't already. I may not alert you to every time I step into a restaurant or watch TV (a boy's got to live offline sometimes, after all) but I'll be sure to keep you up to speed with links to new posts and other relevant tidbits.

Have there been any posts that have really resonated with you? There's been a lot but if there's any that have really stuck with you tell, please tell me about 'em.

Now, to all my readers I'd like to say ...
