Semiquincentennial

This is my 250th post. I let my one-year anniversary and my 100th post pass unnoticed, I think because they didn't seem worthy of the occasion. But 250 strikes me as a nice big number. And with BlogHer starting today, I'm about to go all reflective on you.

I started blogging because I'd been hooked on reading blogs for a long time. Once I learned that my friend Julie had taken the plunge (boy, did she ever!) I had to get in too. I had once hesitated because I thought that to be worth anyone's time, my blog would have to be hysterically funny or super-opinionated, or that I'd have to have some kind of incredibly dramatic story arc going on, but I couldn't resist any longer. I wanted in on the party!

I don't think I am or have any of those things (at least not on a regular basis). But somehow I've found almost 250 things to say.

  • The one with the most comments: my recent third-kid angst post
  • The one time I tried fiction: with so-so results
  • The one that gets the most Google hits: actually from the photo tag, if you can believe it
  • The one that's about ice-fishing: part 1, and a brief follow-up
  • The one that maybe you haven't read that I particularly like: a mommyblog moment
  • The one where you make me laugh, a lot: superior monkeys!
  • The one with the goofy penguin picture: and one of the few places where you can see my face
If you've been reading, thanks. If you're new, I hope you'll come back again.

I'm fairly new to your blog, so I thought I'd say hi (in case I haven't already.) Happy 250!
