Yay for me! I have actually stuck with something long enough to reach a milestone.
As I was lurking online today, thinking of ways to celebrate my 100th post, I found this article on Slate.com. The author writes about why she shut down her blog.
"I had kept the blog for nearly five years, using it as a repository for personal anecdotes, travelogues, and the occasional flight of fiction—all of which I hoped, eventually, might lead to a novel. And then, somewhere between the bedsheets and 6 a.m., I realized something: Blogging wasn't helping me write; it was keeping me from it."
I thought about this for a while and felt bad for her. Blogging has had the opposite effect for me. It has encouraged me to write, to think, and be creative. It has forced me to keep up with a hobby I have long neglected. It has put me in touch with other bloggers who inspire me and make me think.
So, for my 100th post, I'd like to pay tribute to those of you who make me try harder. Thanks!

P.S. Please don't get mad if I didn't include a link to you here. J is tugging at my arm, these are all I could fit in a 2 minute window. Every blog I read and comment on makes me want to be a better mom.
