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:
