Today is a special day. This is one of those milestones. Getting ten thousand hits was pretty cool, but this one is personal. This is my one hundredth blog post. The first post was May 9th and was titled the Garden of Eden. I talked about things pertaining to home. This whole thing started as an exercise to learn the discipline of a new profession. This has been a way for me to learn how to take writing and turn it into work.
The trouble is that it has not become work. It has not grown into a profession, it is still a passion. I still look forward to doing this everyday of the week. I still enjoy writing and trying to put my thoughts on paper. So I am still looking for when this all becomes "work". I am looking for the day that I set in front of my laptop and look at the keyboard with dread.
I would have thought that sharing my thoughts and my heart would suck, and I was fearful. I expressed myself in ways that I normally reserve for friends or at least in closed company. I will say that I have learned a lot about myself, and about the people in my little corner of the world. This has been one hell of a trip, and is not even close to being over.
Some of my most popular blogs surprised me, because those where the ones I saw as more anger then thought. Some of the blogs I was most proud of were left to the wayside. I have to admit that clearing my heart and mind felt good, but the postings with the most venom seemed to be the most popular. Calling people out on their bullshit was great, but it makes me feel like people want to hear the tabloids rather then hear about news, or editorial views.
No worries though, I will keep on writing. I will keep calling people out, and I will keep on keeping on. I will share the issues I wrestle everyday even if it is dealing with ass hats. I will continue to put the spot light on toxic people. I will also never betray my heart. At the end of the day, yeah I am sharing this with you all, but this is still mine. I make no apologies.
I think that is one of the lessons I learned in life through this blog. I learned the value of my own truth. I have learned that their are courageous people out there hiding in the flock. I have learned a different kind of respect for some people. All of these things are grounded in truth, and not just MY truth. So keep reading, I will keep writing.
So I say thank you to all the people that have kept up and posted responses. I say thank to those that dealt with my rants, and philosophical hippie bullshit at times. I say thank you to people that have also walked with me through this journey. I know that not all the people I wrote about here was Crystal clear, and there were shades of Gray on my Heart, but as sure as the Aspens whisper lies on the wind, I will keep writing.
So in closing out this one hundredth post, I ask you all what would you like to see me write about? What was your favorite post so far? What would you like to know about me? I will dedicate the next post for as many comments that I get to you, as a thank you for reading and offering support. I say thank you for joining me on this journey. Thank you for sharing links to my author page. Thank you for not calling me a baby killer. Thank you for directing traffic to this page. More importantly, thank you for seeing my naked soul and not screaming and running away.
