100 and counting

This is my 100th post on this blog.  I really hadn’t thought about it much, until I saw someone else’s blog who was posting her 100th entry.  I guess these round numbers are important to us.  I don’t know that it is any more momentous than a 87th or 123rd, but the number 100 appeals to us.

Now that I have entered this blogosphere (what a stupid name, btw), I have learned a few things.  First, there are a lot of interesting people out there.  There have been several “regulars” who have come by to read my posts, and leave wonderful comments.  Second, the blogs of those that I read, especially those that I read regularly, have an amazing ability to write about their lives in a way that make me feel as though I know them.  Most have no pictures of themselves included on the blog, but I feel as if I would almost recognize them if I ran into them on the street.  Third, I have realized how much I love writing here.  I can’t explain it, but I never would have thought that I would come to find it so important to me.  If I miss a day or so, I think about it, planning what I might write about in the next posting.  It is always amazing to me that anyone would have any interest in what I write, but I enjoy the writing process.

Finally, I have learned just a little bit about blogging itself.  I have no real technological skills.  I don’t know how to add all of the fancy stuff to the blog.  I did well to figure out how to make a link to another blog the other day, and I was thrilled when I figured out how to change the banner picture and changed the format a few weeks ago.  But I know how to track the “stats”, find out how people come to the blog, add tags, and find interesting blogs written by other people.  Just 6 months ago, I didn’t know that stuff.  This has all been new to me.

Even if no one comes to read this blog, I will continue to write.  I am doing it for myself.  Nothing in it is of much consequence.  But the 100th post will not be the last-for better or worse!

Thanks to all of you who come by, and to everyone who leaves comments, I enjoy all of it.

  1. Congratulations!

  2. It’s kinda like when my wagon turned 200,000 miles on Monday!

    Enjoy your next 100 posts

  3. Happy Hundreth Anniversary!

    None of my friends blog, and think I am rather strange to do so. Its lovely to find like minded folk who feel the same way I do!

  4. Keep up the good work! Before you know it, you will be yelling at your Nursing Home Nurses to let you step a little late because you have to finish post #10,000.

    Many of us do not put our real pics on here for fearing of psychologically traumatizing our readers…..at least that’s what I do…… though….hidden deep in remote parts of my blog (or blogs) there are actual photographs floating around out there…..

    Have a great weekend Blogging Buddy!

  5. That should have read “let you stay up a little late…” Darn Slydexia!!

  6. I occasionally post real pictures, but never my name. I would blog even if no one read, too – and in fact in the early days hardly anyone did. But I recently passed 1000 posts and almost couldn’t believe that had happened.

  7. Congrats on the 100…and the next 100 or more!

  8. I consider blogging my therapy. It’s cheap and it works!

  9. Congratulations… I plan to keep on reading.
