Seven Hundred “club”

700 BlogsHad to put my party hat on to do a bit of celebrating yesterday when I realized the last blog I posted ticked the counter over to #700.

That’s a lot of muffin recipes, bioBlogs, secondary characters, writing challenges, and random crap that’s crossed my mind and you’ve had to read about! Thanks for hanging in there with me!

I’m wondering… what was your favorite post?

Do you miss the bioBlogs? I miss the cool people I found out about. But, I don’t miss the crunch of trying to find some one interesting to write about every day — thank goodness that experiment is over! It was a terrific education journey to learn about all those people, but it was tough to find birthday boys and girls who sparked my interest on a given day. And then I had to research them, and write what amounted to a  500-1000 word  report  on them. EVERY DAY. My goal was to do that for a year and I went for like 18 months, so I think the experiment was a success, but it was really hard, and my fiction writing and other work got short shrifted.

Muffin Mondays are going strong (although I often don’t get to post the results until Tuesdays).

At the top of the school year I got a job teaching voice at a local performing arts studio. It is a real job with a pay check and everything! And I love the kids (and adults) I get to work with. I also love finding music for the students. Whether it is something they suggest or something I remember singing 30 years ago that will work with one of their voices it is a lot of fun looking for and prepping the songs. I’m thinking of slipping a day into the schedule that focuses on music. How does that sound?

Any way I really want to thank those of you who stop by and read now and then.
