Post Three Hundred

I just noticed that my three hundredth post was yesterday.  I’m actually quite proud of myself.  It only took me a year and a half to get to this point.  Which really isn’t too bad considering the huge stack of nearly empty journals that I have accumulated through the years. 

I view this blog as a journal of sorts.  It holds all the special little moments and silly little things that I would most likely forget if I didn’t write it down.  Only it doesn’t seem to be the little pink diary of my youth.  You know the kind…a private one that came with a tiny little lock and key designed to keep out prying eyes.  Of course, I had inscribed “PRIVATE! KEEP OUT!!” on the very front pages…just in case the lock didn’t hold.  Not that I had an earth shattering secrets.  Or that I really thought anyone wanted to see them.  It was just the principal of the matter. 

Shaun is the one that convinced me to start blogging.  In fact he set up a blog for me and posted some little stories that I had sent out to friends and family.  If he had thought about it for one second, he would’ve known how much I would resist his act of love.  Still…the seed was planted. 

It took me a  nearly a year, but I finally set up a blog of my own.  (You didn’t really think my stubborn self was going to use the one he had set up for me, did you? Talk about having to re-making the wheel)

What amazed me was that people…people that I didn’t know and wasn’t related to started reading my blog.  And even better commenting on! (And any blogger can tell you how much we love comments!)  I got used to the really odd feeling of people I know “in real life” wanting to discuss things  I know I didn’t tell them…they had read it on the blog. 

I have met some amazing people from all over the world in blogland.  People that I have learned to care about and that I would be thrilled to have as a neighbor.  I love going over for a visit  and taking a peek into your lives. 

So to all of you that come to visit (even all your lurkers out there!) thank you for being a part of this journey.  For caring about me and my family and for giving me support to keep writing my little posts…

    Wow! Congrats! It does amaze me how people link to other people and continue to read. Have a good weekend.

  4. Cheryl says:

    I think I linked to you from Andrew’s blog. I like how you write and what you write about. I’m really glad that you come over to my place and leave me comments. Like you, I have a stack of empty journals. This thing, this journal of sorts, has stuck and I’m so glad. I’m really thankful for the connections I’ve made with other people, and you’re one of them.

    I totally know how you feel. I love blogging and meeting people through my blog. It is such a cool outlet to document and journal this journey of ours :o) (Although mine does seem to be pretty dominated by knitting and fibery goodness) I started the blog not to meet people but to keep myself motivated in my adventures. I never realized how many cool people (like you!) I would meet! So happy 300th post!!!

    We’ve never met (I’ve never even been to the North-West) but I’ve grown rather attached to reading Susan’s daily musings. Amazing how this blogosphere works.

  9. Congrats. I am glad you started a blog. I love your daily story….

  10. Jenster says:

    I had to come for a peak because my blog is jenster’s musings and, well, the similarity was too much for me to resist.

    Congratulations on 300! I hope to meet that milestone some day, but I haven’t been blogging quite a year so I’m still a little ways off.

    I’m looking forward to perusing you blog – always fun to find a new one! Oh – I followed you over here from Dorky Dad. We, too, relish embarrassing our 12 and 15 year olds. It’s my reason to live.

    Ive written about two thousand posts. My current blog has over 800 on it. It really is quite the journey but afer four years of blogging Im beginning to wonder if maybe I should quit and find another outlet. I’m mulling on it a lot lately.

    Congrats!

  12. Betty says:

    Congratulations! I really enjoy visiting your blog, and having you comment on mine. I may not comment every day, but I read every day.

  13. Dorky Dad says:

    No problem. We like reading your blog. Otherwise we wouldn’t read it. ‘Tis a good one!

    And congrats on No. 300!

  14. Jay says:

    Congrats on #300!!

    The best part of blogging is meeting all the really great people out there. Like YOU! πŸ™‚

  15. Kirsten says:

    You are so right! Blogging is where I too find my release, express myself and find a way to laugh at the absurdities and joy of parenting. Congrats on the 300th post!

  16. Jocelyn says:

    You are so made for blogging–and we are all the better for getting to enjoy you. Go for four hundred, please.

  17. Diesel says:

    Congratulations, Susan!

  18. Jenny says:

    Congratulations!

  19. Eileen says:

    Congratulations! I know what you mean about those empty, half started journals! Keep on blogging, really enjoy your blog.

  20. Kell says:

    Congrats! I always look forward to coming over to your blog. I don’t get here every day, but I always catch up. Thanks putting your journal out there for us to come along.

  21. Susan says:

    Wow! Thanks guys πŸ™‚

  22. bichonpawz says:

    Hey Susan, Congrats on 300 posts! Hopefully I will get there someday. I did some research on wordpress and would have liked to update my blog, but it won’t let me do it on my husband’s ancient laptop. I get an error message saying something’s not installed. So, I will have to wait til I get my own laptop back. I like to change my templates alot so I’m hoping it will work for me. Love your blog…thanks so much for sharing!

  23. Mojokat says:

    Wow, 300 posts is a milestone. It’ll be a while before I reach that one. Specially at the rate I’ve been going! =-)
    Anyway, I’m so glad that you found my blog and I in turn visited yours! I really look forward to catching up on yours. I have been out of the loop for more than a week now because of a training class, but I’ll get caught up this week, I’m sure!

    Thanks for the many bloggies!
