This is my 100th post. I wanted to do something special for it. I’ve read that successful blog posts are either entertaining or informative. After 99 posts I agree with that but also think they can be one other thing – honest. People enjoy reading honest experiences and the open thoughts of others. A brief look at Freshly Pressed will show this. So here are 100 things about me.
