C The Centennial Celebration


The Roman numeral, C stands for centum, the Latin word for 100. Today’s post marks my 100th Daily Dandy, a momentous occasion. When I think about reaching 100, my thoughts range from TV shows celebrating their 100th episode, to companies celebrating 100 years of business and human beings celebrating 100 years of living. Although I may not have reached these lofty heights with my centennial, I do, however feel as if there is cause for celebration.

The question that keeps popping into my mind is, “what have I accomplished” with 100 posts? I guess my answer would be that I have put my words, my thoughts and ideas out into the world. However small that contribution is, none the less it is my daily offering and I am grateful for the opportunity. If I did a Google or Yahoo search for Candy’s Daily Dandy, by golly, my blog URL appears, with more than one entry. Not bad for a few months of aimless ramblings. Before August 2008, there was not a single reason for searching anything even closely related to me personally, besides my phone number and address.

Since I have joined the bloggersphere I have laughed till I cried, learned, been challenged and commented with much enjoyment. I have discussed sports, kids, death, marriage, divorce, insanity, sex, movies, food, morality and so much more. I have connected with some great people and I have asked for your help to which you whole heartedly responded. I have, at times, bared my soul without being ridiculed or judged-some of you even shared similar experiences to let me know I was not alone. You have shared in my joys, laughed at my jokes, offered your support, participated in my contests, given me awards, and responded more often than not with a wink and a smile. Without you, I don’t think there would be a 100 to celebrate. It’s a big part of the reason why I got to 100 and hope to continue for 100 more.

Where will I be in 100 posts from now? I can’t say for sure. It took me 159 days to get here, and on May 14, 2009 it will be 100 days from today. I hope to continue to be going to my computer to every morning to write about something, knowing someone will read it and share in my discussion. On my first day as a blogger, I had no idea that 100 posts later I would have a large body of work to show to possibly present to a prospective employer, with a little more than a few sprinkled in that I’m quite proud of.

If I had $100.00 for every post I have written, I would have $10,000.00 to show for my efforts. A lucrative undertaking to say the least, but if I’ve said it once I’ve said it 100 times, I don’t do it for the money. Blogging has enriched my life in 100 other ways. I could never put a price tag on it.

So for that, to all of you, I say 100 Thank Yous from the bottom of my heart.

While I hate, "First" comments, let me be the first, unless some beats me, to say congrats on 100.

My 100th is tomorrow! And as my FIRST commentor, you've been with me all the way.

Have a DANDY DAY!

Lisa said...

My daughter had her 100th day of school yesterday. She had a sticker and everything.

Do we need to get you a sticker? Or can we just eat the cake?

My daughter, too, came home last night with a crown saying it was the 100th day of school.

I just ate 100 pounds of Lucky Charms.

I'd give 100 dollars to go back to bed and have someone else buy groceries.

And I'll be here for your 200th, 300th...and many many more. ;)

What is your secret to keeping your blog looking so young? Surgery? Botox? Sleeping in an oxygen chamber?

Girl, I'm right behind you. I'm at 91. I think I'm going to give a little give-away for mine (which you'll appreciate, you little product ho, you!). I just got back from Fendi's 2009 Spring/Summer fashion show (dreamy with a capital DEEE) and I think I'll give my gift bag away. I'll post pictures later on, so pay attention!! :-)

Great post! I hope to reach 100 some day (and an extra $10,000 laying around sounds nice too)! It's great, this little bloggosphere, that has made us feel our words are valued! Can't wait to read more

I started actually blogging around August 2008 as well. I have just about 50 posts. Does that mean you are TWICE the blogger I am? Absolutely.

Cowguy said...

You and your 100's. Showing 'em all over and such... tsk tsk tsk.


Oh what the hell, CONGRABULATOONS!

Congratulations! I'm super close to my 200th and am planning something special. Hope you can come ;)

Scope said...

Good morning! I was a name dropping fool in my 100-4-100 post, and I mentioned you. (Yes, it's a clever little way to pimp my blog today!) Come on over.

Poobomber said...

Congrats! Keep on chugging!

Heff said...

Blogging for me has been an INCREDIBLE waste of time, but it HAS been funny and entertaining, and I guess that's what matters the most. Happy 100.
