100 cents to a Loonie; 100 posts at Loonies And Sense

As the title so subtly suggests, this is my 100th post. I wracked my brain to come up with a more clever title for this post, but I'm afraid that's the best I could do.

A post count of 100 doesn't exactly take me out of the newbie camp, but it is a significant milestone for me. When I started the blog, I wasn't sure what kind of posting schedule I would keep, or how long I would even manage to keep the blog running. Just look at the 27-day gap between my first and second posts.

Since then, I've graduated into something resembling a regular posting schedule, and I've gained about 30 regular readers through RSS subscriptions. Still small, but growing. Knowing that people out there actually read the blog has really helped to keep me honest with respect to my goals. I may not always achieve the goals I set for myself, but having to answer to my audience means that I keep these goals in mind as I go through my day-to-day life. Thanks for being there to keep me accountable.

I wanted to celebrate my 100th post with a quick retrospective of my ramblings since my "hello world" post on June 7:

Canadian Stuff

Family

Mortgage

  • So long, CMHC - In July, we finally paid off the last of the CMHC premium on our mortgage

  • Demystifying Mortgage Rates - I looked into how mortgage interest is actually calculated based on the posted rate

Savings Wars

Investing

That's just a handful of posts that I think give a flavour for what the blog's all about. Do you have any favourites that aren't on the list?

Congrats on hitting 100! You're far ahead of me, and my site is older!

Just wanted to mention that I've recently started reading your blog regularly, but don't use the feed.
