I am probably the only person who can give a near-exact count. A few months ago, I took a few weeks just to count everything in all of my organizers, drawers, desks, models... everything! Since then, I have kept track of all pieces gained or traded.
I own 25,420, give or take a few miscounted pieces.
Looks like this is a relatively small collection next to some brickfilmers. I'm still collecting, of course... and whenever I have the money (and for Christmas) I make large Bricklink orders. Come to think of it, I suppose I have only recently gotten really into collecting other than buying a few sets each year that I liked. Now I'm ordering a lot from Bricklink, and my collection is growing fast.
In addition to collecting standard pieces, I like to collect old pieces, odd pieces, weird or rare colors, and if I find a good deal then I order pieces in bulk. My strategy is to go after a few things I specifically want for each order, and if the seller has a good deal on anything else I might use, then I order as many as I'm likely to ever need.
Do I talk too much?
