One Oh Oh

So I made it – 100 posts. I honestly didn’t think I would do it. When Beth suggested I start a blog I didn’t even know what to write. Who wants to read about 2 kids, 2 dogs and a mom that is slightly crazy? I thought only my family would care… turns out I was wrong! And that makes me very happy.

This blog has really changed me. Silly, huh? I have a job that requires I be creative both verbally and graphically, but I would always procrastinate on the writing jobs. I didn’t think I was good enough. Now when someone asks me to write something, I jump in and write away. I still may not be good enough (in my mind), but I have the courage AND the confidence to give it a shot. And you know what? I haven’t been laughed at yet!

My posts used to be written off the cuff, and I still do that on occasion, but now I have at least four stories that I am working on. Can you believe that, Beth?! Four stories that are in “draft” format! I feel like such an “writer”.

I have met some AWESOME folks through this blog-dom. Klee, Old Lady, Brat, Plimco, and all the others on my links list I enjoy reading everything you post. When I click on your sites and see a new post I kind of settle in my seat and get a little smile on my face. I can’t wait to see what you write – and if you make me laugh out loud it is a bonus.

Thank you to my friends and family for joining me on this journey. I look forward to writing and reading many more stories. Now if I could just meet some of you face to face… that would be a blast!

Thank you both. I am amazed I made it to 100 in just a couple of months.

Congrats! :)

If you ever make it up to Chicago, we'll definitely meet! (Considering I reaaaally hate the heat it the south, it is much less likely I'll ever get down there.:P)

It's a deal! Grab me some tickets to Oprah and I'm on the next plane... :)

I am not surprised you have mad 100 posts. You are a natural born motor mouth - inherited from you pa’s side of the family (right Beth?), and you have an opinion on everything from animal breading techniques to why the sun comes up in the East. But you also have the ability to put your thoughts, opinions and comments in a succinct and enjoyable manner (which you probably inherited from the milk man.) So, no, I’m not surprised. Good job, and keep it up.

I know what you mean! I love reading all of my blog buddies posts, and I feel like I have known some of my new buddies for years.
If you're ever in Ontario, give me a call....

Marni said...

Ooooh, Ontario! Consider it done! I have always wanted to come to Canada...

Congratulations, kid. I have to admit, yours is one of the first blogs I check every morning. I love what you write, and I've enjoyed watching your writing style develop and strengthen. Keep going!
