On Reading and Writing

This is the 100th post on this blog, and I'm afraid it's not going to be all that insightful. On my way home I was trying to think of a topic worthy of one's 100th post and ... well, I got nothin'. So, I'll just use this momentous occasion to thank all of you for reading The Betty and Boo Chronicles. And to thank you for your encouragement and your compliments, and your predictions that I'll be famous someday. (I kind of doubt that last one, but I'll take it.)

When I started this blog almost three months ago, I didn't know what it would become. I still don't. What I do know is that it has become so much fun. It's brought me back in touch with a few folks who I haven't been in contact with much over recent years. I also realized just how much I really missed writing. (I had been on a bit of a hiatus since the kids were born.) I do a lot of writing in my professional life, which I am very fortunate to do, but this is different.

As Ben Franklin says, "If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth writing."

So, thanks for reading. I'll try to continue to do things worth writing.
