I’d like to thank God, my parents, all the little people…ROFL!
This journey to blogging was a long one. I have always been a writer but I never kept a journal. I think I didn’t want to do anything else that was isolating and secretive. I’ve spent much of my life keeping family secrets and got tired of it so I have started to become much more open about my experiences. I’ve also adopted a new policy with family.
If you don’t want it told, don’t tell me.
I’m not going to be the one people can dump all their garbage on. I encourage everyone in family to just deal with it and not be 'shamed.
Anyway…the 100th post.
The toughest part about starting a blog was deciding how much to share and what else I had to say. I am not one of the many frustrated writers out there. I have PLENTY of outlets. As you know by now I own a bi-weekly newspaper, host and produce my own talk show and can contribute to the local daily whenever I want. But usually, that is stuff that is not too personal. I don’t put too much of myself out there for public scrutiny in my town/city. So this has been a place for me to be honestly me. Without being judged to harshly and criticized much.
In celebration of my hundredth post and after careful consideration, I’m going to gradually re-list what are now my favorite blogs and sites. As I browsed around, I found places that felt good to me. But after a while I began to feel ashamed that I was there. And then I felt guilty for recommending that you go there. So I just quit and said I’d start again someday. So be on the lookout for a new blogroll.
How long have you been blogging and do you know how many posts you've done?
