Happy 100th Entry On My Blog!
Even though it's sort of lame, I feel really happy to have reached this first little milestone. The original goal was to get myself back into daily (5-day a week, that is) writing.
At first it was tough to think of stuff to write about. Now I feel so much more comfortable with creating topics. I also feel much more comfortable in where I've set my personal writing boundaries. Are there some things I'm just dying to write about, but don't feel they're blog-appropo? YES! But does it annoy me anymore that I can't/shouldn't write about them? No.
It's funny, because when I first started the blog, I would meticulously edit & re-read what I was publishing; I would set stuff to publish later so I could go back and read it again after stepping away for a second; but most strangely, I was sooooo self conscious of my writing! I couldn't go back and read old posts because I felt embarrassed by them! And this I guess is what I'm most proud of now; this was the real purpose of starting it: to not only write every day, but to feel comfortable with my writing.
So hopefully the next 100 posts will only get better! I think my new goals for the blog might be: to tell more people about it; and to figure out some more formatting stuff - maybe spruce it up a little!
*As a side note about the 100 picture at the top: 1) What in the world is that?? It appears to be in trees - it looks like a balloon? Is that a man at the bottom? And 2) Don't google image search "100th birthday cake" without expecting to see some heartbreaking/heartwarming pictures of people turning 100. Just saying.
