Wow! I can barely believe I just wrote that title! This is my 100th blog post... It's been a wonderful journey to reach this milestone and I'm enjoying the opportunity to step back and reminisce a little bit.

The fact that I even had enough to say in 100 blog posts is almost surprising! Ok, maybe not so much ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I am actually surprised that this many people actually care about what I have had to say in 100 blog posts!

My blogging adventure started in January of this year. I honestly couldn't give you a great answer as to why I started blogging, except that I was looking for something else to do. I've always been someone who likes to have multiple things going on at any given time and I had started to feel bored and in a rut. So, why not start a blog, right!?

I have always been passionate about the power of social media and given that this area had taken on a major role at my day job, it made sense for me to start writing about it. So, I sat down one weekend and started my blog. I'll never forget the excitement of getting my first views and shares!

Would you believe I didn't even have a Facebook business page at the time? Nope. Just my personal page (which I still hoard for personal use only) and a moderately active Twitter account. And my moderate, I'm being generous - I mean less than 100 followers.

Obviously, things have changed a lot in the last six months!

In fact, I was just celebrating my 10,000th blog view at the end of June and then I had almost that many views in July alone. I have to thank each and every one of my dedicated viewers, subscribers, and new visitors. You are all wonderful and I am so grateful to each and every one of you!

In fact, the thing I have valued more than anything else during this journey has been the amazing connections I have made. I have connected with some incredible people though my blog and social media activities. I couldn't possibly list all the names of these people here - the music would start playing before I could even get through a fraction of them. But most of you know who you are!

I do have to give a shout out though, to my incredibly supportive husband, who tolerates and even supports everything that comes along with being a blogger.

I have to say, not knowing what to expect when I started this adventure, I couldn't be happier! This has been such a great experience and I can honestly say that I believe I have found my dream. This is what I want to do, and what I was meant to do. This is never work to me. And this has brought me so much joy!

I am so excited to see what the next 100, 1000, and however many more, blogs have to bring! I am so excited to explore the great relationships ahead and to further nurture the wonderful connections already made.

Once again, thank you to YOU! You have made this my success!
