100 Posts Down!

Well, once I push “publish,” this will be my 100th blog post on this site! When I posted my first post on December 30th, 2010 I had no idea whether or not I would keep going with it. I have not always been the best with keeping a journal in the past, but this seems to be different. And now, 17th months later, here I am with my 100th!

So just for fun, I have put together some random facts for my blog. Here ya are:

  • Top Pages/Posts: Homepage (1082), 30 Day Photo Challenge (384), 20 Day Song Challenge (294), Bucket List (76), Who Am I (61)
  • 66 Comments, 21 Categories, 343 Tags, 23 blog subscribers
  • Top Countries: USA, Canada, Argentina, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Russia, Ireland, South Africa
  • Top Referrers to my blog: Facebook (1352), loveisfromhim.wordpress.com (91), search engines (84), blogger.com (62), Twitter (53), LinkedIn (38), WordPress.com (24), alysonjoy10.wordpress.com (14)
  • Busiest Day: Feb 28, 2011 (88 views)

That is just a few random facts, but I find them interesting enough.

I have written about why I blog before, so I will not say much now. What I will say is that I have greatly appreciated the creative outlet that this blog has provided. It has allowed me to write and post a lot of what is on my mind and what I have gone through. Granted, not everything that has happened is here, but a good amount has been written about. I look forward to continue writing and posting for a long time to come. In fact, I have 7 different drafts to posts that will be coming up in the near future! So no worries, this blog is not going anywhere!

I am especially thankful to those of you who have read this, and even more so for those of you who have subscribed. I greatly appreciate your support, comments and everything! If you ever have questions or want me to write about something, please do not hesitate to ask-just post a comment somewhere!

Well, there’s my 100th! Not super glamorous but just what I wanted to write 🙂 Be sure to be on the lookout for more posts on faith, life, music and whatever else may be on my mind! For as long as I can, I will continue using this blog.


Thank You!

A special note to those of you who read my blog. Whether this is your first time reading what I write, or if you are an avid follower, I wanted to say thank you. It is encouraging to know that there are people out there who are actually reading what I write and seeing what I post.

However, I do not write just to have people read what I write. If that was the sole motivator behind my writings, then I would write and post what I thought the majority of people would want to read and see. Basically, I would write to appeal to the masses…but this is not why I write.

Many people ask me why I keep a blog and why I write so much. The easiest way to answer this is that it is a creative outlet. By keeping a blog, I have a medium by which to express the ideas, thoughts and feelings in my mind in a mix of a creative and structured way. This blog is my outlet and for as long as I can, I will keep writing and posting…and subsequently you can keep reading.

All that being said, I do appreciate those of you have subscribed to my blog. It is good to know that at least a few of you out there are seeing my posts 😉 If there are any of you who would also like to subscribe, I welcome it. It is super easy to whether you have a blog or not, just check out the side panel for the box to click. If you have a blog and decide to follow me, I will follow you right back!

If you ever want to provide me feedback, ask questions or give ideas for posts, please let me know! I welcome and encourage all of it. So if there is something you have wanted to ask me, or a topic you want to hear my thoughts about, comment somewhere and let me know. If you read a past post and want to know more, post a comment. I try hard to reply to everyone who posts and respond with a thought out answer. I really love questions, so feel free to ask me anything! I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for reading now and into the future! Stay tuned, you just never know what I may post!

So many components to a blog post! (Ignore the cirlced "mac" though, I am a proud PC owner)
