Welcome to my 200th post, this will by far be my best post ever!  Not really, I just happened to notice I was at 199 otherwise this post wouldn’t have happened.  Technically, I created this blog long before I used it as more of a journal to my everyday life as I use it now.  The blog it is today, this would only be post 119.  But I don’t erase anything, I’m not ashamed of where this blog has come.

I’ve gone from 1 follower (my wife) to 17.  I know that’s nothing compared to other bloggers out there, but I appreciate the fact that 16 people who don’t know me, check out my blog on a regular basis.  So I thank those that follow.  I also realize that I may have other readers who actually follow on feed burners and such who don’t actually click the follow button (my mom),  Me personally, I always click the follow button on other blogs that I read in my feed burner just because I know how much it means to me when I have followers.  But to each his own.  I write this blog for myself, for something to turn back to when I’m all grown up (yeah, I’m still growing) and I can flip through stories of my life.  Everybody wants to publish a memoirs, but my life is boring, so these are my memoirs.

I have no reason to stop blogging and have no plans to do so.  As you can tell, I don’t publish daily and I publish at all times of the day.  I post for myself, but I’m glad you all are along for the ride.

Thanks to you all who read my blog, please take the time to follow my Twitter, like my Facebook page.  I would like to interact more with followers but I don’t feel like taking the time with very few followers.  I know you won’t all be interested in these, but check out my other blogs listed below.

My other main blog is about sports cards.  I still collect baseball cards.  Told you I was still growing up.  This is another Blogger blog.

This is the brother blog to the other above.  It is a picture only blog.  I post all kinds of pictures from MLB, NCAA, NFL, NBA and anything else sports related I come across including my sports cards.  This is a Tumblr blog.

A Day in the Life of a Nobody

This is my newest blog, also a Tumblr blog.  It is also a picture only blog but I post all kinds of things that I enjoy.  Here are all the tags I’ve used so far to give you an idea of what I post.  Alyson Hannigan, Anne Hathaway, Batman, the Big Bang Theory, Bruce Lee, Family Photos, How I Met Your Mother, Michael Clarke Duncan, Michael Jordan, Michigan Wolverines, Miscellaneous, Muppets, Star Wars, Supernatural.  I don’t post a lot here just because I don’t really run across a lot to put on there.  But I enjoy it when I come across something.

This isn’t actually my blog, but I do guest post on it.  It has anything and everything to do with the Michigan Wolverines.  You can find my name in the tags to read what I’ve wrote.

As you can see, I keep myself busy.  I don’t expect you to really check out the other blogs, but I have a duty to plug them.  I look forward to the next 200 and I hope you all do to.  Thanks for sticking with me


  1. Congrats on your 200! I know what you mean about appreciating all your followers; it's nice to know there are people out there who are reading what we write.

    1. Thank you! While I post for myself, it's awesome to know other people are reading and commenting, so thanks for that too.

  2. Congrats on the big 200.

    I never really thought about the whole follow button vs feedburner, which is how I follow blogs. I'll have to keep that in mind.

    1. Thank you!

      I figure it doesn't hurt anything to follow the blog even when I use a feedburner. If I was limited to how many I could follow then I would be pickier about it.

  3. Howdy, I came via The Six Fingered Monkey blog. Congrats on 200. I have no clue how many entries I have , I took a 2 year brake from blogging, but am not back into it. I think you are doing good at having 17 followers. I think at one point I may have had 13 or so. But, I am like you.. writing for me. If I get a follower, well then YEEHAW! LOL

    I will return!
    oh.. and I will look for your "follow" button, just in case I chose to follow... hey, I barely know ya, you don't think think I would do this huge step in our relationship so soon now did ya???
    LMAO, I am kidding!

    Come visit me anytime you want... or not, (oh please, please). Again kidding!!
    I think I am tired.
    Take care!

    1. Thanks! I took a few breaks towards the start of this blog so I definitely understand that. I also definitely get excited when I get new followers, I think I might be an attention whore. Lol

      As far as you being tired, with 6 kids that wouldn't surprise me. The 2 I have left at home wear me out. I added both your blogs to my feedburner so consider them both +1 in the follower department.

  4. I'm one of your newer followers and I just want to say that two hundred posts is quite an achievement. I look forward to reading more and getting to know you better. I hope Dude Write will bring you more followers, provided you want them. Take care.

    1. Dude Write has been great, definitely helps with the traffic and followers. But even better was finding other great blogs (like yours) to follow. Even if you are a voyeur. lol
