This is my 100th post. I have thought long and hard all week about what I should post, since 100 is such a special number. These are the two things I came up with.
1. I have always though it was funny that we celebrate the 10th and 100th and 1000th occurrence of things. (Well, not always, just since my daddy taught me about bases.) In case you don't know why we celebrate those particular milestones, its because we live in a base 10 world, and those are pretty, round base 10 numbers. If we lived in a base 2 world, we would celebrate the 2nd and 4th and 8th and 16th... and in base 7, you get to celebrate the 7th and 49th and 343rd... Those number systems are much more fun because you get to celebrate more often! And that concludes your math lesson for the day. QED, friends. (Who loves math? EVERYBODY!)
2. I have really enjoyed blogging, and want to thank the people who have read the previous 99 things I felt like sharing. Blogging has been such a great way for me to chronicle Finley's life and share it with friends and family. It's helped me find my new hobby (designing blogs) and filled up massive amounts of space on my hard drive. I'm sure what I write about isn't always interesting to every person who reads, so thanks for coming back, even when I post things that are lame (hello, no comments on this post). Maybe I shouldn't, but I tend to measure a post's popularity by how many comments it receives... so please, comment if you ever have anything to say. My favorite part of blogging has been connecting with readers. I love to hear reactions and be able to interact with the people who drop by.
So, in honor of this 100th post, leave a comment to help the blog feel the love. I know there are sneaky, stalky, lurkers out there (because I am one of them on a BUNCH of other blogs) but if you are brave enough to say hi, please do so. Old bloggy would appreciate it.
