Blogging about blogging is a bit ridiculous, but on this, my 100th post, I have a few things to say on the subject. I joined the blogging world with a great deal of trepidation, I just wasn't sure if sharing my private life was something that I wanted to do. In the last 6 months I've learned that sharing isn't a bad thing, it's actually kind of fun. I like the ways that having a forum to express myself has altered my life. My perspective has changed, I look at the everyday moments of life in a different way. The blog has affected my whole family. They're always interested in what I'm posting and they all secretly love it when they are the 'star' of the blog. (especially Dane, he'll do just about anything if I'll blog about it.) They have never vetoed a picture or asked me not to post something, they're good sports about the whole thing. While they are up for anything, I think I tend to censor myself. I feel like I'm still finding my voice, and my goal for the next 100 posts is to share more of my opinions and lay it all out there. I'm very opinionated, it's going to get interesting.

Thanks to all of you that have been along for the ride so far. I love reading your comments and hearing what you have to say, and in turn learning something about you. I read lots of blogs by people that I don't know, and I never leave them comments. The term for that is 'blog-stalking'. I've decided to come out of the stalking closet and comment on those blogs that I read and enjoy. There is no shame in blog-stalking, but if you're here, leave some comments and join the party.


  1. Congrats! I enjoy all your posts, but especially the ones about Gavin.

  2. I love your posts, they are always so creative. Blogging is a wonderful avenue to keep in touch with you and your family.

    I too have learned to look at life from a different perspective since joining the blogging world, but unlike you I have not taken the challenge to comment on blogs of people I do not know. Funny thing though, I would love to hear from all of the people who visit my blog.

  3. Woohoo!!!!
    Congratulations Natasha!

  4. YAY! I wish more people would come out of the closet and leave comments. They are usually worried about what to say, or are just nervous...but you are really does turn into a party. The more comments, the more posts. Then we get to know each other, and share in each others ideas, struggles, and happy moments. I love it! Happy 100th post!
