Wow! I can't believe we're to 100 already! It certainly doesn't seem like that many. If you're still a loyal reader then you must either be very dedicated or have a high tolerance for the mundane. I am under no illusions about the quality and interest level of most posts, but it is fun for me to do the actual writing. Being a teacher means correcting a lot of other peoples' writing and doing hours upon hours of writing instruction, but you rarely do much creative writing of your own. This blog gives me the chance to natter on about whatever's going on at the moment and not worry too much about structure or format or word choice. Three things I apologize for:
--- Excessive and gratuitous use of parenthesis (I just can't help myself!)
--- Lame humor (I can't help myself there either)
--- Over use of the compound sentence (I will work on this)
I really do appreciate the comments I've gotten on many of the posts. Getting feedback on your writing (positive or negative) is almost always a good thing. I don't have any plans to stop, so count me in for another 100. Contrary to the opinion of most 7th graders, writing really is fun.
