Celebrating the 100th Post On This Blog Today!


One hundred is a significant number.  For example:
People who celebrate their 100th birthday receive recognition on Good Morning America.
The metric system and our currency are both based on increments of 100.
We talk about “going 100 miles an hour.”
We often strive for 100% of something.
This is the 100th post I have written for this blog, since it began 106 days ago.

I feel like I should throw a party.
Or something.

The 100th day of school is celebrated with activities and parties.  (I once even wrote some ideas of how to do that.)  But - the 100th post on a blog?  I'm not sure of the right way to celebrate! 

So, I guess I will just make a comment about it here, spend some time figuring out why some of my 100 posts were better than others, and feel grateful for all the good things I've discovered about blogging.

Then, I will write post number 101!

Three months ago, 100 posts seemed like a lot.  Now it feels like I am just getting started. 

Thank you for reading and commenting, whether this is your first visit to my website or you have been a loyal reader all along. I hope you visit often and follow this blog - either by email, on Google+, Bloglovin, Facebook, or in your RSS feed. (You will find lots of easy options on the sidebar). 

Like my peony bush, with buds just getting ready to bloom, I am looking forward to this blog continuing to grow and hopefully getting better every day!

I'm looking forward to seeing these buds and my blog continue to bloom.

Have you read many of my posts? Do you have a favorite?
