This is my 100th post.
Well, technically it’s my 101st, because the first post I wrote here said something like “Hi, I’m starting this blog, but I don’t know what I want to do with it yet.” A few posts later, when I started numbering them, I didn’t include that first one.
This blog is a weekly, and since there are approximately 52 weeks in a year, that means I’ve been doing this for almost two years. Hard to believe it’s been that long. Time seems to keep going faster and faster as I get older, and my upcoming 40th birthday this summer serves as a reminder of that.
In the aforementioned first post, I said that I didn’t have big expectations for this blog, I didn’t have a specific topic for it, and that I’m just going to be me and share my thoughts in a public place. In two years, I would say I’ve definitely stayed true to that mission, if you can call it a mission. I still don’t have a specific topic, and I’m still just me, sharing my thoughts. When I started this, I didn’t know if I would build an audience beyond people who already know me. I haven’t exactly made an effort to. But I occasionally get likes and comments from people I don’t know, and I’ve followed and interacted with a few of them in return. That has been a very positive experience.
As I’ve said before, blogging is a big business for some people, and I haven’t really made an effort to turn Highway Pi into a business. But that’s okay. I’m not trying to. I’m doing exactly what I wanted to with this blog, and I will continue to do so indefinitely.
Thank you all for reading. Happy Easter/Resurrection to those of you who celebrate. He is risen.
