Thanks for all you wonderful comments over the past 100 blogs!


  1. Yay! Looks like a good cookbook.

    I'm so glad I talked you into blogging. It wouldn't be the same on here without you.

    Oh, let's see... what I like most about blogging.... I think it would have to be the friendships I've made. I also love how it connects us to other people we would have never been connected with otherwise.

  2. I started blogging to keep my family up to date on our going-ons around here. I continue to blog because I've become aquainted with so many people from so many different places.

  3. Happy 100th Post to you!! I began keeping a blog to keep friends and family posted on the happenings of our lives! Now, I love to blog for several keep a family scrapbook, to vent, to praise God for His blessings, and to connect with friends and family!! Thanks for the giveaway...what a great idea!

  4. Happy 100th post!

    I have not seen that cookbook before - looks like a great one.

    Reasons I like blogging: makes me feel like I am actually using my journalism degree. I have enjoyed meeting new people and I love looking back at certain dates to remember what we did.

  5. 100 posts! That's awesome! Congrats!

    Blogging came to me as a welcome relief from the pressure of scrapbooking. I absolutely LOVED scrapbooking, but couldn't keep up with it... felt like I was in a harried race against time. My friend Kelly introduced me to blogging 2 1/2 years ago as a way to document our lives and it has been such a great ride. There are so many great things about blogging... one thing I didn't expect was making blogging friends, like you! ;)

  6. Blogging to me is a way of getting to know other stay at home moms or homeschool moms. I find it fun! Love the cook book -- hope I win. Congrats on your 100th post.


  7. Yay, Michelle! Your 100th post. I'm getting close. A cookbook, go you! I love blogging! It keeps my out of town family caught up on the fam, I have met wonderful friends, and I get to write down (type) things that I would soon forget about the kiddos....

  8. 100! Bravo! I know what it means! :-) (I have to count my own posts.)

    This is a very good and generous idea! (You can find my email address on my blog / profile! :-))

  9. I have lots of family out of state and well, out of the country also! I started my blog so that I wasnt bombarding their emails with pictures and videos of our daily events. Sometimes it is nice to blog about something that is kinda inconsequential in the big picture but is great to be able to hang on to a memory of that small thing that happened on that one small day long ago.

    Congrats on the Big 100!

  10. Happy 100th post! And what a great giveaway! Hmmm... what do I love about blogging? Well, everything! First, I feel like it's a bit of an artistic release for me. Don't get me wrong. I have NO artistic ability, and I don't even fancy myself a writer, but when I'm writing a blog post it FEELS like it, if you know what I mean.
    I love that I've met so many varied kinds of people through blogging. I have friends that are lots younger, and some that are lots older, but each and every one of them brings something special to my day when I read their blogs. I've got friends all over the US, England, Trinidad, Norway, Canada, and a few other places I can't recall at the moment.

    And yes, this is also a great way to write down and record things that have happened in my life, with my family, etc. I have an AWFUL memory, and I'm really bad about writing things down, so this has been perfect for me!

    Justine :o )

  11. You don't have to enter my name in your give away, although I ADORE cook books. Shipping charges are outrageous!!

    Congrats on your 100th post!

    The reason I started blogging and the reason I continue blogging are two completely different things. I started so family could keep up with us....I continue not only for my family but for the incredible fiends I've met...they make me laugh...we cry together, pray for one another and encourage each other to keep on keepin' on!!

    Incredible! I love it!!

    Now I'm going to look at your photos....I, too adore photography!!

  12. I love blogging. I have made new friends and learned new crafts.
    congrats on your 100th posts

  13. I think it's fun and I like reading what others have to say!
    Congrats on your 100th!

  14. I like blogging, because I get such good ideas from so many people through reading their blogs, I have met some great friends through blogging, I have won some great stuff through blogging, I have received some great stuff because of blogging, I can stay in touch with family with blogging, and it makes me realize when I hear the anecdotes of other families, that my family really is normal (even when I think they're not!) Thanks for the chance!

  15. Congratulations!

    I use my blog as a journal to record all the great things about my kids as they grow. I hope that one day we will all look back and have great memories.

  16. Blogging is a great way to express yourself and keep in touch with family and friends! A little addictive!

  17. I started blogging as a hobby and am having a blast. I have won some cool things and meet really great people. It's so much fun.

  18. I'm into cooking, so I love looking at all the neat recipes that other bloggers post. The contests are pretty neat also!

  19. It sounds cheesy but the kindnesss from women I have never even met before! My fav part is all the useful info I can find- recipes, products, advice. It's like one giant magazine! Thank you for the giveaway!
