Yesterday I struggled for a topic.  Many of you commented and I appreciated your support!  I knew I wasn’t alone but it didn’t make it any easier.  One commentor suggested that perhaps inspiration would hit after I posted.  In fact it did.
I found myself with an open hour last night ( a rare occurrence).  So I used it to read as many posts as possible new ones especially as I feel I have not had a chance to acquaint myself with many new slicers this year.
What a treat such amazing, creative voices we have amongst this group.  I am always so impressed, so moved, so inspired.
I came across one post from a fellow slicer who was celebrating their 100th blog post.  Every time I read one of these, I am astonished just how does one do this??  That is a lot of writing.
Then it occurred to me.  ( Yep, I am a bit slow on the uptake at times, folks.)
IF this is my third year of participating in this challenge, and IF I also made the occasional post outside of the month of March for the past 3 years I might have actually hit 100 as well.  ( In fact, I was worried I had surpassed it and missed this milestone altogether).
So back to my blog I went and began calculating.
What?  I checked again.
99?  99?  99!
Soooooo tomorrow TODAY is my 100th blog post most of them as part of SOLC.

Guess I didn’t have to think too hard about a topic for today!

My post will not be anywhere near as eloquent as others’ who have written about this landmark.
That’s OK with me.
For all I really want to say is THANK YOU to this community for including me, supporting me and encouraging me along the way.  It has been a life transforming adventure and I look forward to the continued journey with you all.
In celebration I am reposting a section of a slice from my first year of this challenge explaining how all of you make me feel:

  1. It always feels great to hit that 100 mark, now on to the next 100. :-)

  2. Congrats on the 100th post! It's a great feeling for sure. I love the set up of this 100th.

  3. Congratulations on the 100th post- such an accomplishment!

  4. Congratulations on the 100th post! The lack of ideas to write about must have been going around yesterday. I had the same problem.

  5. Congrats on the 100th post! I hit mine yesterday and I wish I would have had more time to write about but I think I will save it as a reflective post at the end.

  6. Congratulations! The words you shared float up like colorful balloons.
