200th post?  Seriously?  But I’m not the writer! 🙂  These milestone posts kind of get me because each one comes and it’s a great reflection on why it is I put myself out there like this.

True, 200 posts for many bloggers isn’t too many, not at all, but as I read back through the titles of some of this writing, it’s fun to see where it’s taken me.  I’ve been asked to judge other blog posts, I’ve been asked to write on other people’s blogs, and had the chance to interact with some awesome people who actually read this thing.

The best part of all of it, that I have a voice, all be it a small one, in the grand ocean that is humanity.  I get that chance to feel what my students feel when they see their writing posted on our classroom blog.  If you don’t blog all ready, do it.  That first post, heck, each post is a rush because you are truly speaking to the world.  It is humbling and exciting all wrapped together.  No, I’ve not stuck my foot into any controversy and no, I’ve not posted anything overly profound, but that’s not what this is for.  This is a place to reflect, to maybe ask “what if”, to celebrate, and to mourn.

So, if you’ve made it this far, thank you.  I appreciate the fact that people do read this, comment, and are able to take something away from this little hole in the wall blog.  If you’ve got questions, ideas, or just want to say hi, by all means, drop me an email, find me on Twitter, or leave a comment.  And even better, if you’ve decided to start a blog, please, let me see it.

And finally, simply stay connected with those around you, both face to face and online.   We are good by ourselves, but as a group, connected, we can do awesome things.
