I’ll start with a very special one. As this post goes up, I am perhaps (hopefully) still asleep! Enjoying a day off from work! How cool is that!? And, because I have an job with actual benefits, it’s a paid holiday. Paid. Holiday. What more could I ask?
Another great celebration:
Earlier this week (Wednesday, to be exact) was my 100th Post! That’s right… after (over) 3 years of blogging, I have done 100 posts! Sure, the first 2.5 years can only be loosely called blogging since most of them were simply promises to post more later, but still…. I hadn’t even planned this — mapping out my blog posts (another small celebration, my blog posts are mapped out and some are even written) I settled on the First Friday of the month as my Celebration Friday… and it just ended up being the week of post 100. (Originally it was Post 100, but then I had to go an put up a poll-post… and another post…).
100 is kind of a cool number. I remember back in Kindergarten celebrating the 100th day of the school year. Leading up to it we did all sorts of things with 100, but on that day all the classes got together and we did some sort of great celebration. I believe we released 100 balloons into the air (this was before we all realized/knew just how terrible a thing that was for the environment). I know that Zero the Hero made an appearance (he came in the form of a green puppet of some form, if I remember correctly).
Yeah, that’s right… I’m setting boundaries for myself. Boundaries and priorities. This is going to be the last of my million-and-a-half-times-a-week posts… After this I will be shifting to updating this blog on Wednesdays. There will, of course, be other posts from time to time — some Friday Celebrations, the odd post that I just have to put up in that moment, but I will promise posts on Wednesdays (with Disparate Threads switching to a Monday posting for primary story — and trying to have a post Fridays for other materials).
Deciding on this, and sticking to it (if I can!) is kinda huge for me. I’m one of those people who almost always takes on more than I can chew. I like to say “Yes” to projects, and like to do things… so when I can take the moment to step back, realize that I can’t really do it all, and set boundaries for myself — that is an awesome thing!Each Friday a group of bloggers Celebrate The Small Things. Hosted by VikLit and co-hosts Diana Wilder, LG Keltner @ Writing Off the Edge, and Katie @ TheCyborg Mom. Eclectic Alli is occasionally erratic as well as being eclectic… so I am trying to participate at least once a month! Join The Hop!
