Here we are at a standard landmark, the hundredth post. Nearly nine and a half months separate post #76 and post #100. About two and a half months separate post #1 and post #25. However, despite the slowdown, this blog is still on the move. Let's take a look at some posts of significance in the past (as well as other quarterly landmarks):

~~~

~*Three Quartered~ This landmark is particularly quarterly.

~*Half Hundred~ Something about Kennedy...

~*Five and Twenty~ The first QL.

~*The Villanette~ An exercise in form fusion.

~*James Emanuel- The Interview~ A look at an interview of one of greatest poets of all time.

~*The Homework Myth~ Contrary to some belief, writing out those one-word answers in complete sentences (for fifty questions) may not actually help Susie learn.

~*Rowerful Poar~ Cheshire, helping me point out a few of the attributes of solid writing.

~*Poem Greater Than Jess'~ Bwaha, my poem is better than yours~

~*A Short Visit~ -to my middle school, from which I was promptly kicked out.

Thanks to all you frequent visitors for making this blog worthwhile. I always enjoy reading your feedback, as you are all intelligent and friendly people. A special thanks to Jessica Schneider- without your support early in this blog's life, it may well have fizzled out (and it certainly wouldn't be where it is today). You might deny it, but I certainly believe it to be true.

Take Care,
~Neil

Here's to another 100! We all expect those posts to speed up come summertime!

And my poem was waaaaay better. In fact, I wrote this haiku in honor of your 100th post:





Marvel at that!

Psh, my poem had a controlled ambiguity unmatched by yours. But thank you for the marvelous haiku.

It is by far my greatest and most memorable haiku.
