This is blog post 100. Seriously, my One Hundredth Blog Post. Momentous.
When I started I was hella nervous, thinking that no one would read my crazy shit or worse, that someone would. What if I was boring? What if I alienated people with my rudeness? What if people hated my swearing or sarcasm? (yeah, right) What if someone judged me, badly?
Well, all of that has happened in these past 99 posts, & honestly? I don't give a flying fuck!
Some people have unfollowed me & really, I was OK with it. Blogging has made me a stronger person, & I'm proud to say that I don't need to be liked by everyone in the blogoshere. This isn't just a big Eff You to everyone, what I am saying is that there really is room in the whole of planet blog for everyone - everyones likes & dislikes, interests & hobbies, passions & pet subjects. Everyones point of view.
I am happy to say that some people like what I write, some people love my swearing, some people are not alienated at all. Some people (who I love love love) follow my blog, & some leave lovely &/or interesting comments. I am continuously delighted with how friendly, supportive & encouraging other bloggers are. It's been like stumbling into a giant secret club where everyone is genuine in their friendship & generous in their support. I wish real life was more like this, to be honest!
I wanted to pass on my thanks to some people. No, there is no award, or badge, or meme. You don't have to pass on your thanks to 15 or 7 bloggers of your choosing. This is just me, saying a genuine thank you.
Danielle & Danimezza, Thank You for Hello Blogger Events & organising meet ups. I can't tell you how much I love these get togethers, & how much they have widened my blogging perception.
Tina Gray at PR Friendly Aussie Blog Directory Thank You for creating a blog directory that has not only taught me some excellent blogging skills, it has enabled me to receive products for review & giveaway.
Brenda at Digital Parents Thank You for being so encouraging when I first started, because it absolutely meant the world.
Melissa at Suger Coat It, Thank You for being so full of ideas & inspiration, & thank you for being so friendly. I recently told Melissa that she was my go-to girl for blogging actualisation inspiration, & I meant it. Also about the girl crush. Meant it!
Bree at The Blog Stylist, Thank You for providing notes for Blogopolis. I was jelly mad that I wasn't actually there, & your notes have allowed me to workshop the out takes, so to speak. One day soon I hope to actually apply those great ideas...
I could go on for ages (because my blog roll sits at around 300, did you know that was the Blogger limit? Of course you did) Please don't be offended if I haven't mentioned you - this really is to every blogger who has encouraged or appreciated me, offered advice, taken the time to read my blog & say something to me, I just want to say Thank You.
