This Is A Landmark Post For Me... Post #100

Wow, I can hardly believe I am making my 100th post as a blogger! When I first started blogging I was truly a babe in the woods. I probably wasn't doing it completely right at first and I'm sure I made many mistakes, but I caught on pretty fast. I was immediately hooked. For the first time in my life I have a venue for the millions of thoughts & ideas floating around in my head. Or rattling. My use of the English language is sometimes lacking in sparkle factor, but I think I manage to get my thoughts understood. The main point is that being able to pound out my thoughts & observations & memories on the keyboard has been better than any shrink or head doctor could have ever been for my mental health. Not that I would ever go to a head doctor. I think they are for seriously mentally ill people. I'm just mildly disturbed, scarred by careless parents, like most people.



The blogosphere and those of you who make comments have no idea what you have done for me in the confidence department. You all make me laugh when I read your blogs or when you comment on mine. I haven't had this much fun in years. Nor have I ever felt so cleansed inside. Things I would normally let gnaw away at me, I now let roll off my keyboard as if facing my inner monsters for the first time. There is certainly nothing wrong with that. In fact, it's healthier than what would have been said decades ago. Don't air your dirty laundry in public. I'm sure there are still millions who feel that way, but I'm not one of them. It always makes me feel better when I've admitted my mistakes and faced them. And there are many people who find strength in the reading of other people's highs & lows in life. I do. I say get all the dark clutter out of your mind & your soul and step into the light of life.(You would never have heard me say this when I was growing up. I was so subservient.)



So, yes, I do believe that the blogosphere is a very healthy place. Mr. Snooty & I haven't had a BIG argument since I started. You know, because now he doesn't have to listen to my rants all the time. That's one improvement in my life. Also, I'm able to offer unsolicited advice that people I know in The Real World, would probably never accept from me. Improvement #2.



So, I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank all of you out there in the blogosphere for being here and being who you are. Even though I do insane and crazy things at times, I know you'll still accept me because you know that I'm just menopausal, not postal. And when I read your blogs, I am equally as accepting of the zany, funny things you do.



What a wonderful world the blogosphere is....

I think your language is sparkly...just like a sparker or a leagal firecracker. The reason I am suggesting these tame things is because your words, however they come out, have meaning, are bright. When you close your eyes and think about your words you can still see them, just like a sparkler. You don't realize how bright those little things are until you close your eyes and you can still see it perfectly before you.

Sorry so sappy but your sparkley comment made me think of it. :)

Congratulations on your 100th post. Blogging is so much fun, isn't it? I have met so many interesting people on the blogs (including you!). The one thing I have found is the more different people are, the more they are the same.

Your blog is fun!

Aaawwwwww your so sweet!

See what I mean? You people are always positive and uplifting and I would have to be dragged away from blogging, kicking and screaming, to end this ride. (Is there a support group for this?)I'm not leaving this blogosphere for anything.

Congratulations! And, I hear you on the joys of being able to pontificate in ways you never can in real life. Fun!

You ROCK and your blog rocks...I love coming over and reading all the refreshing stories about your life. You never worry about being who you are, and I LOVE that. SP you are REAL, that is why I love you! You speak what is on your mind from your heart and get it out ...cheaper than therapy.

Way to go Snoot! You hit the big 1-0-0! I remember when I hit it and it felt pretty good. I love blogging even though my husband thinks it's a waste of time. I don't argue with him about it...I just call him an ass in a post and it makes it all better!

Keep on blogging babe!

In case you didn’t know, I've posted a complete list of everyone who left their blog link on Dad Gone Mad's Big Big Stars post a while back in a post of my own in April called Blog Rolling With My Homies over on my blog, so if you want to see it come on over and sit a spell. I don't bite..…that hard anyway!

If you did know just overlook this and pretend I said something funny since my brain feels like mush from trying to comment on all 217 on the list because somebody had the bright idea to challenge me to it!!

It is wonderful isn't it. It's a place to put your thoughts and it's cheaper than therapy!

I'm so glad I found you!

Snooty Primadona said...

I will be forever grateful to have found all of you and like I said, I'm sticking around. Poor Mr. Snooty. He thinks I should only do this if I get paid for it, lol. He doesn't realize how much this blog isn't costing him, HA!
