The 200th Post
I started this blog 91 weeks ago. Today is my 200th Post. Ta da!
For the first 62 weeks, I told nobody about my Blog. It was a place I retreated to when I felt like writing something down. It was my secret journal. I guess I didn’t really have all that much to say, because I only wrote 79 posts! But a few strangers wandered in now and then to say Hi, and slowly my little blog started to become more public.
My New Years Resolution for 2011 was to announce my Blog to Family and Friends. So in late December 2010 I invited the gang to stop by for a visit. Most of them did and some became regular readers, while some of them stop by now and then. But strangers keep visiting, and I keep visiting their blogs and truth be told, I now have some blog friends who know more about what I am doing than some of my non-blogging friends do!
If I really wanted to celebrate this milestone in a big, fat way, I would go to Costco and buy one of my favourite cakes. One is a Carrot Cake and the other is a Tuxedo Cake. Both are very good… except the carrot cake is the best… but I really don’t need all those calories, so there won’t be any cake.
No, to celebrate my Postal Milestone, I’m just going to list my eight favourite posts from the past 91 weeks. It was fun to go back and look at what I had to say, and maybe you will find a few that you haven’t read before!
Allergic to the Gym – Why I won’t join the gym until I’m in my 80′s.
Pink Jobs and Blue Jobs – The Car Guy and I divide up the jobs.
Last Minute Christmas Gifts – If Martha Stewart had a forge and a welder.
Complaints Department – Too Many Words – The Crabby Lady thinks there are too many words.
More Time – Same Time, different clocks.
Fear of the Future – Scare tactics that keep populations fearful.
Marriage – The Car Guy and I have been married a long time!
The Beauty Hype – My beef with the Beauty Industry.
Thank you to all of you who visit my blog! Blogging is a community, and I am very glad I joined it!
