My 2500th Post.
Well you young whippersnappers, back when I started blogging, 2500 posts ago, there was no twitter, no tinychat, no i-phones, no Flip Cams.
What there was, remains: the ability to post my writing and some interesting photos (I'm much better at the photoshopping now) and the daily push to write something.
And what has been added are some amazing friends, colleagues, and readers. And you all mean so much to me. Thank you.
I remember when I was a teenager and I told my dad I wanted to be a writer. "Just remember my dear, you are easily amused."
And I remember thinking, not back-talking my Dad, but still: "Yes. I think that's the one essential thing."
Life while writing this blog hasn't always been easy, but it has been rewarding. I love this Q&A between a young writer and Garrison Keillor. What do you do as a humor writer when life gets really hard? I leave you with his answer.
And here's to the next 2,500 posts. Love, Fran/BG
