This friends, is my 100th post. I seriously didn't think I'd get here. Not in my first year of blogging. What started out as something I wanted to do, turned into something I needed to do. Diving into the blogging world was the best thing I've done for myself in a long time.
Just as my friend said, it was completely self indulgent. The idea that someone besides my BF and my mom would want to read what I had to say. To think that one day I'd have readers, followers if you will, was kind of ridiculous to me. Somehow it happened.
For some reason I'm irrationally emotional about this. This blog has become my therapy, my rant space, my idea board, my biggest accomplishment to date, that is all mine. Sure it's about motherhood, but it's because of motherhood that I'm able to finally take a step and write.
To everyone who reads this blog. Thank you. Thank you a million times. Some of you have been here since the beginning. Thank you.
To all the readers who sent private messages, thanking me for writing about certain subjects, thank you. It's why I started to blog. I just had to know that I wasn't the only one feeding my kids Oreos and Dr. Pepper. I'm glad that I was able to put motherhood in some kind perspective for you. To make you feel less alone. To make you feel like you WERE doing it right, even if "right" was a very lose interpretation of the word.
I will admit, always, that I was not built for motherhood. It built me. Believe me, it's a total work in progress. I will share that progress with you. Honestly. In the best way I know how.
I cannot wait to see what's to come in 2012. I'm excited to try new bloggy adventures. Like a giveaway perhaps. Or ask some of my favorite bloggers to guest post. I'm looking forward to a new blog design. Mostly I'm looking forward to the process.
The writing process.
So this is number 100. Thank you for making it happen.
