Wow…500 posts!

I was sitting here this evening wondering what to write about, thinking about this, discarding that, when it hit me…I’ve published 500 posts on this little blog of mine!  The first few months I didn’t do a lot of writing, wasn’t really sure what to write about or who to write for.   Then I wrote a little more, then a little more.  When I began writing for myself, expressing myself, sharing myself, that’s when I began to feel comfortable with my writing.  Now I’m writing almost every day, often more than once a day.

Writing has become my way of coping with the stress in my life, with disappointments, with loss…but it is also how I choose to celebrate my life.  For me, writing is the dance I perform to the words in my mind.  Hopefully we all find our passion in life…something that puts a sparkle in our eye, a smile on our face, and a swagger in our step.  That’s what writing does for me.  It allows me to examine my life, to become the person I want to be.  But it also allows me to create an entirely different life, to try it on for size…and then to proceed or abandon it, whatever I choose.

So…for all of you who have been along for the ride since the beginning (yes, there are a few of you…I remember how excited I was to have ten followers of my blog!), thanks for supporting me, encouraging me, and sharing this journey!  And for those who have only recently joined the party, welcome!  I hope we’ll grow together and toast our successes.  Salud!

  1. Congratulations to you!!! I read your blog almost daily although I don’t always comment. Also, I don’t remember if told you this but one of your recommendations on dressings really worked for me. Hendrickson’s Sweet Vinegar and Oil has become an integral part of my frig contents. 🙂

  3. Congratulations on 500 posts! Carolyn’s comment reminded me, when I started Phase One of the South Beach Diet, I had to avoid the Hendrickson’s dressing, way too much sugar in it. I guess Kroger won’t be a regular stop for me, after all. No wonder it is so good!

  4. Thanks, Patti…you’re one of the old-timers (in a good way) here at my blog (you and Carolyn both)…been around pretty much since the beginning…time flies, doesn’t it? Now, don’t you be trying to spoil my love of Hendrickson’s…I guess we could try to come up with our own recipe, one without much sugar…probably wouldn’t taste as good tho.

  5. Way to go Patti! Congratulations too on the fiction work you’ve been posting. Keep it going!

  6. Way to go Patti!! (sorry I’m a little late to the party 😉 )
