One Third Celebration

1 May

Folks, I’m 1/3 of the way there.

Today marks my celebration of completing 33% of the postaday2011 challenge.  And though I already did an Ode to 90 Days post, I’m pretty excited that the good chums at WordPress have encouraged us to use today’s post to link our three favorite posts from the challenge so far.  Because hey – I’m all about celebrating small victories.  And I’m all about having more time to run around Chicago like a crazy fool.  So here I give you: my three favorite posts from the challenge so far.

3) Emergency Underwear Day: This post make the top three because it embodies a lot of things I love about blogging.  I didn’t go out of my way to think of a topic or stress about whether it was entertaining.  I just sat down and wrote whatever came to mind first, and it’s great when it turns out all right.  But my favorite part about this is the comments you all left for me.  I absolutely adore that I can blog about anything from untameable underarm sweat to underwear wedgies at work and you will all unashamedly chime in that the same happens to you.  Thanks for that.

2) The Underwear Made Me Do It:  I just like this guy because I think it’s well-written.  When you have to blog every day, it’s tough to take the time to focus on each and every post.  Sometimes you just have to accept that you have things going on and you’ve done your best with the time and effort you could dedicate that day.   So some of the posts I enjoy the most are the ones that are the most effortless and this is certainly one of them.  I don’t know why I blog about underwear so much.  Apparently it presents a lot of challenges for me.  

1) My Pole Name Is Jasper Highland: This gets top spot, without a doubt.  This blog post is the best Lollipop Tuesday event yet.  I would have absolutely never, ever wandered into a pole-dancing class if I didn’t have a blog to maintain.  And  I’m so proud that I did it because it is without a doubt the most terrifying thing I’ve done so far.  And as an added bonus, it made for a pretty decent post.  This is certainly the post earning top-most marks this far into the game.

So I’m 1/3 of the way finished.  That’s pretty cool… but what can I possibly write about for the next two thirds of this journey?  

Meh – I gave up on worrying about that a long time ago.  Here’s to the next 2o0-something posts.

Thanks for coming along for the ride. ♣

    And I, for one, can’t wait for the next 200! So glad you started all this, Jackie, and you have to promise not to stop when 2012 rolls around. By the way, I think Lollipop Tuesdays are totally inspiring, and while I am just a girl who almost never says no, you’ve made me think about what new things I should be trying!

      I really don’t know about 2012 🙂 Sometimes I don’t even know about 2011. I have to admit, there have been a few times so far where I’ve just considered stopping altogether. So we’ll see about next year. I do love that I challenged myself with Lollipop Tuesdays, though. I forced myself to get out and have new experiences and I’m learning so much this year. It’s pretty awesome!
