Yesterday, I had asked my readers to tell me what they would like to read about in my 2000th post. I incorporated two responses in this post and I'll use the others in future posts. Thank you, commenters!
So, here's a little mini-interview with myself.
Let's start with Kimberly, who asks me to describe what I consider the "most surprising thing about your blogging journey."
I am tempted to respond "I'm surprised that I'm still doing it six years later" but I must explain further. What surprises me the most about my blogging journey is that, after a two year start up period of blogging to an Internet full of crickets, I found the world of blogging communities and blogging challenges. This was thanks to a writer and blogger who happened to be dating one of my cousins (well, it was more complicated than that). Thanks to Billie, I joined a daily blogging challenge just hours before its registration ended, struggled and completed it, and then kept posting daily because I wanted to. I still am posting daily.
Librarian Katy Manck asks "How about favorite food or flower for the biggie? Something that you could enjoy 2000 times in your life!"
Well, Katy, that would be most flowers. I could not imagine a life without flowers. But let me pick out several as my favorites. I could enjoy all of these 2,000 times.
The lilac, because it smells so sweet, and is with us for only a few days each year. Its scent reminds me of Lilacs and Roses, an old brand of talcum powder my Mom (who died in 1965) loved.

Again, thank you again for taking this blogging journey with me. I hope you will stick around for the next 2,000 posts.
What are you going to do this weekend?
