The Blog just turned 100!
My, how our little Blog has grown, hasn't it?? Seems like just yesterday I finally got up the nerve to set up Jill's World, and now here we are, already 100 posts old! Unbelievable!
Today should be a celebration of the Blog, so I don't want to bring things down by talking about my poor ol' Sens and their latest disturbing trend of blowing third-period leads. However, I would like to mention the cornucopia of "subjects" that have made the Blog a success, and that does include the Senators, and hockey talk in general. There has also been my favourite TV shows: Grey's Anatomy, Friday Night Lights, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Rockstar Supernova, and Big Brother. I've also done a few CD reviews for Hinder, Rockstar Supernova, and Chris Daughtry; "concert reviews" for The Town Pants, Steve Agnew & Branded, and In Safe Hands; a book review of an Elie Wiesel novel which I now can't remember the name of...and so much more! Hey, remember the "security breach" back in December when I decided to make you all sign up with a password to eliminate "no-name" Bloggers? That was friggin' cool! Heck, the Blog even had a baby when Stacy & Ricky's little Madyson arrived last month! We've been through a lot here at Jill's World!
The 100th Post would not be complete without a shout-out to all my faithful Bloggers: Sara, Sharon, Priscilla, Stacy (now off on maternity leave, but with us in spirit!), Ricky, Kathleen, Sarah, Rachel, Lindsay, Chris, Luke & Kenny (who can no longer post, but are still out there reading too), and to anyone else I may have forgotten...THANK YOU for your contributions, whether they have been few or many! And to my lurkers out there, who enjoy reading but choose not to comment - thanks for dropping by and for making the Blog worthwhile!
It hasn't been that long, but I have trouble remembering what life was like before the Blog. Now I spend my days wondering, "What should I write about today?" and keeping my eyes peeled for interesting tidbits or stories to share with you. My biggest fear when I started writing Jill's World was that no one would read it and I'd spend my days chit-chatting with myself. However, you guys all jumped on-board and have made it a really fun place to "hang out" and chat...and that's really what the Blog is all about.
So Happy 100th Post, everyone, and I hope to see you all here for the 200th!! :)
