I am a big dork (times 100)

Okay, so I had it all planned out. I was going to have this amazing post for my 100th POST and blow everyone's socks off. It was going to be spectacular and grand. I have seen many other blogs celebrating their 100th, 200th, and even 300th posts, and I was looking forward to it. I would have more comments on my 100th post than ever before because it was gonna be so original and fun.

Well, guess what? I am a big dork...that's what.

I forgot.

I blame it all on my overzealous love of scrapblog, by the way. That, and the Superstar Blogger MckMama fans who flocked over here without any warning on the day she linked her blog -- one that frequents thousands of hits per day -- to my modest little blog. I got so caught up with my excitement over my new header that I had to post about it right away. And that's not like me. I am a planner who overthinks and analyzes most everything. And do you know where that got me? I wrote a post about my happy new header, and I didn't think for a minute about that super duper post I was going to write next for my 100th post. You know, the one I should have gotten all those comments about.

So, then a funny thing happened. On the post that was my 100th that I didn't remember was my 100th, I got 25 comments. Which -- if you remember from this plea on my blogiversary -- is almost twice as many comments as I have ever had on any one post.

And I owe it all to my sudden spontaneity about scrapblog.

Oh, and maybe to MckMama, too. ;)

Are you getting tired of me saying "scrapblog" yet? Yeah, me neither. But I promise my next post will have pictures of my sweet boys and no mention of the above word. I guess I better work on weaning myself off of it.

Honestly, I can't believe I have written (over) 100 posts!

Thanks to my wonderful readers for reading them.

I certainly do NOT think you are a dork nor I am tired of you saying "scrapblog". In fact if my life were more interesting I think I could start a blog with some very cool headers!
Thanks!
Love you,
K.

Hey, you are NOT a dork! (That's my honorary title, remember?) Congrats on your 100th, 101st and 102nd posts, my favorite scrapblogger!

I just saw MckMama's new blog header. That's so sweet that you made and sent them the shirts. Very colorful and fun--just like them!

Congrats on (missing) your 100th post! =)

You are a funny girl. You said something to me in a post and I wanted to answer you. I can't for the life of me remember what it was now. I guess if it was urgent you will FB me. ;-)

Congrats on 100+ posts. Keep those cute P&P pictures coming.

That picture is at the zoo.

I told you half of my "posts" are just pictures so no overachieving go on over at my place.
