100,000

My blog, which I started in late June of 2009, reached a milestone this weekend. The counter went over the 100,000 mark.

When I started this blog in late June of 2009 at the urging of the lovely PK at elisnewbeginnings.blogspot.com, I never dreamed of reaching a milestone like this. And I want to thank all the readers -- even the lurkers -- with a special thank you for those who leave comments.

I started this blog as a place for my Lisa stories and, unfortunately, I haven't done a good job of updating the series. I actually hope to have another chapter posted in another week or so. Meanwhile, the blog kind of morphed into me posting questions and so many of you being kind enough to answer or comment. I feel this is as much your blog as mine.

And I also want to thank all of you bloggers out there who keep your blogs going. That is what makes this such a good community of like-minded people who get to share their thoughts and their experiences. Let's all keep it up and share things.

  1. Congratulations. And it is funny isn't it, that blogging hasn't really turned out like any of us imagined. More community, less pressure to perform and be perfect. Or that's my experience.

  2. Sin: Yes, blogging is about community and there isn't pressure to perform. We can just be ourselves and share our experiences.
