When I first started blogging almost 4 years ago (or even better when I started Xanga-ing a year before that), I’d probably have laughed at you if you’d have told me that within 4 years time I’d have written 900 blog posts.
Sure, some are much more work than others, but I still seem to find plenty of things to say. My to-blog list is growing faster than I cross things off of it (but certainly not growing as fast as my to-be-read list!).
I suppose it helps that I’m a talker. While I’m introverted and reserved, once I get comfortable in a situation, I might just run my mouth (though interestingly, I seem to be attracted to friends who are even talkier than I am, so we can talk for days!).
It also helps that I’m quite opinionated…I have something to say about almost every subject under the sun. An exaggeration, sure, but if I’ve been exposed to it, I likely have something to say.
And it can’t hurt that I have wonderful commenters who add to the discussion. Reading other blogs (and those old-fashioned things called books) gets me thinking and fuels my writing. And then you commenters add to my discussion of topics here, helping me to refine and sometimes correct my views.
So thanks for reading. While this blog isn’t huge (and I seriously doubt it’d ever will be), it means a lot that anyone would take the time to read what I have to say.
Here’s to 900 more!
Isn’t it ironic that my 900th post falls on April 15th…my last day of tax season? I hit 500 on Christmas and 800 on the day before Thanksgiving. Let’s see…should I try to hit 1000 on Labor Day?
