My 100th post!


Well, I saw some of my bloggin' friends taking note of their 100th post, and just realized that I have reached that mark today. To think, it wasn't that long ago that I didn't even know what a blog WAS. We didn't even own a computer while we were going through the adoption process, so it was quite a surprise to me when I discovered this whole new world.
This blog has become a huge part of my life. Much bigger than I had ever anticipated. It is so theraputic for me to write about Lily and my life as her momma. I find myself going about our day looking for good "post" moments. I almost always have my camera with me so I am ready to capture the moment to share with you all. I started this blog thinking it would be a nice way for my travel-mates and out of town relatives to keep updated on the happenings with Lil. It definitely is all that, but it is also a place where I have met so many other people that I now look forward to communicating with on a weekly (if not daily) basis. I get excited to read everyone's comments and love checking in on a ridiculous amount of blogs as often as I can -- my husband thinks I am absolutely crazy! But, I have become invested in these lives. Those who are waiting -- I wait with you. Those who are doin' the mom thing along with me -- I am always encourged or enlightened reading about your adventures/joys/pains. So, I hope that my friends enjoy checking in on us here, but most of all this blog has been so good for ME. I spend this time focused on telling these stories of my little one, posting beautiful pictures, fun videos etc. And it reminds me time and time again of how blessed I am to be living this life with Lily Lin.

Happy 100th post. I really love coming over to your blog. Panda Mom talked me into starting a blog. I did it to say, "Ok, I did it." Then I got hooked. I didn't think I would. I also look for blog moments everyday.

Has it really been 100???? I've loved every one of them more than you'll ever know!!!

Monica said...

Wow...I read this post and it fit ME like a glove! I, too, started my blog as a way to include out of town relatives and friends into the childrens' daily lives...but, just like you described, it has taken on a life of its own...grown way beyond the circle of friends that I began with to include friends that are just as real as any friends, but whom I have never seen face to face and have only met BECAUSE of blogging. (And, my husband, just doesn't really "get it"...I know he probably thinks I spend too much time on the computer, though he never says it...I guess it is more just bafflement on his part!)

Do you print out hardcopies of your blog entries? I have been printing out the pages of my blog and putting them into sleeve protectors in a notebook...something my kids can leaf through and enjoy. They love looking back on the pictures and hearing the funny stories about themselves over again. (Course, I don't read them RECENT things...just read them things from several years ago...far enough past that I am not corrupting their current behavior! Since, some of the things that are awfully cute, aren't necessarily things I should be encouraging!)
