I'm In Shock - This is Post Number 100!

I was getting ready to post something entirely different when I noticed that is my 100th post! My goodness! I've been having so much fun writing with you. I had no idea.

So, in honor of the number 100, we have to do something special. Hmmm...I wonder....can we make a list of 100 happy words by Saturday? That's a real challenge but since we just wrote about things we hate, happy should be easier. Let's give it a shot! Play away. Come back often. Bring your friends and your friends' friends. Bring your kids and your grandkids too.

And of course, allow your dogs and cats to have a voice. Let's celebrate with 100 words that make us happy. Revel in joy. Wallow in happiness. Get happy! Be happy!

Let's go! Make sure to number your happy word or phrase so we can keep count. I'm excited, are you?

myra said...

Hi I just found you blog and I am wondering if you could check out a blog I have I was thinking of trying to get it made into a book can you let me know what you think it is the first post on this blog I would be grateful for any help. Thanks

Jan Mader said...

Sure, Myra. I'll go check right now.

Meanwhile, let's keep this activity going for a little while longer. All of these "happy" words and phrases are inspiring ideas for me to use later. They're even inspiring more playful writing activities.
