The Big Two O....Oh!
Believe it or not, I just noticed the other day that this was going to make my 200th blog post on "Left and Write". It was August of 2011 that I decided to start up a "writing" blog and really "get serious" with my writing. I probably shouldn't put " " around 'get serious' because I have gotten a lot more serious than I was about my writing....just not as serious as I think I should be, at this point. That's another post for another day, though.
Anyway, I thought and thought about what I should do for my 200th post. I mean, it's a pretty big milestone for me and one that only comes along once in a blogtime.
I thought I might do 200 situps. And, then again, I might just puke my guts out.
I thought I might write about a 200 year old piece of feminine hygiene equipment that was recently found in a trash heap under Manhattan's City Hall Park. Nah, something smelled funny about that one...
I thought I might talk about when America turned 200 during it's bicentennial, back in 1976....
Nah, I'm sure its been done before.
Maybe talk about the Daytona 200? I've never been much of a gear head, so no.
Then, it hit me. A very simple solution and something I don't do near enough.
I could thank my 200 (plus 3) followers (as well as everyone else who stops by and leaves comments) for sticking with me, giving me great feedback and helping me along in this writing journey. I really appreciate the time, effort, and community you've all given me over the years and here's to 200 more. Blog posts, that is...I don't think I'll make it another 200 years ;)
Thank you all....I couldn't have done it without you.
