How could this have happened??? I was watching my post counter very carefully, but somehow, it slipped away from me. I was hoping to make note of my 100th post, and yet here I am, on post 122. Tempus fugit.

It's hard to believe that 122 posts have come by so relatively quickly. I remember when I started this blog in part as a way to get myself into the habit of writing regularly, in preparation for becoming a full-time freelance writer. While I sometimes don't write as regularly as I'd like, I still do it far more often than in the past.

I also have discovered a world (literally) of blogmates, and have forged new friendships with people from around the globe. For that, I am very thankful.

So, with my dram glass of MacAllan 12-year old single malt in hand, I salute all of you out there in the blogosphere that have helped me make this blog a success. You have offered advice and counsel at times, condolences when needed, and have hopefully made me a better writer by reading your work as well.

Here's to 122 more posts and beyond. Slainte!

Congratulations on being so established in Blogland now. I, too, missed an anniversary - I meant to notice when I had been blogging for a year but in the end missed it.

I like the fact I feel I have a friend in NY and indeed I was telling my cousin the other day (she's over here visiting from Boston). I did realise how odd it was though that I've never met this friend and don't even know his real name!

This voice from across the Atlantic would like to wish you all the best for 2009.

I'm glad to have met you, realizing that there was more to discover in NY state than NY city.
