It’s hard to believe you’ve been gone six and a half years. I remember thinking you were so young to die at 63, and now today, you’d be 70. SEVENTY. That sounds so old somehow.
It’s been nearly seven years of these weekly lists, which all adds up to this being WO #THREE-FREAKING-FIFTY. While not every week’s post has been Pulitzer Prize-worthy, I hope you’ve each found one thing (or many) to obsess over yourself.
Whether it’s zen motivation or a song you’re playing on repeat, these four finds inspire me to keep writing, in some way, each and every week. Even when I’m sick or traveling or going through a tragedy, you all are the reason I keep this going every Wednesday.
So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for reading and commenting and making this little witty world possible.
Can you believe it? 5 years ago, I started this blog with a few posts in mind… and no idea where to go from there.
Things have changed a lot since then.
For example, I:
- Started Weekly Obsessions, which have now had more than 220 posts
- Picked up & moved from Florida to New York City
- Made blogger connections & started following so many talented writers
- Decided I love moving & relocated again, this time from NYC to San Francisco
- Shared my greatest successes & deepest disappointments
Most importantly, this is all in large part thanks to reader like YOU! I’m consistently reminded through your views, shares, likes & comments that I’m fortunate to have a fantastic support system.
I’ve stumbled along the way, but I’ve grown & learned a lot, too.
From the bottom of my little Witty heart, thank you for being part of the journey. Here’s to many more milestones together!
Just for funsies: What was your favorite Wittyburg post?
This is serious bizness, you guys. I’m so thrilled to celebrate the 150th post of Weekly Obsessions!
It’s the most committed relationship I’ve ever had, and it wouldn’t be in my life if it weren’t for you lovely readers.
Thanks for sticking with me through all the weird, wild and wonderful obsessions — you make me proud of this little ol’ blog each and every week.
Cheers to many more!
Today is extra special, because it’s a milestone for Weekly Obsessions …
That’s right: This week is the 100th WO here on Wittyburg! I can’t believe this simple idea I had nearly two years ago turned into something that motivates (and frustrates) me so regularly.
Thank you for the support on a weekly basis — it means more to me than words can say. I’m excited and delighted to bring you another hundred more, and I hope you’ll stick around for the ride.
Cheers to being a total geek.
