Two Days – It’s The Final Countdown

My Top Ten Favorite Things of the Last 100 Days
#3 – The Last 100 Days

It is amazing these 100 days are nearly at an end.  Like many new things, I had some initial trepidation about this experiment.  I was very enthusiastic in the beginning, but once the enormity of the task hit me, I had second thoughts.  I am glad I stuck with it.  Many of the posts, especially when I was travelling or during the holidays, were hard to get out and I had to stretch my technology improvisation skills.  Still, it was worth it.  Putting out one post after another, getting my rhythm as well as refining the format and content of the blog along the way made was the key to getting this done.
