This post is my three hundredth (woo!)

Like most bloggers, I am among the many for whom writing is a pleasure. I am not in the glamorous minority of bloggers who captivate a large crowd of avid followers, and that's fine (but don't let me stop you from following) I'm very pleased with my few followers (hello out there :) ) and anyone else who happens to stumble by and grateful for blogging as a tool.

Okay, so sometimes we all neglect to blog, feel guilt and return with renewed commitment which eventually subsides...(repeat cycle) sometimes I might use it to rant, and sometimes I ponder upon blogging at length, it's purpose, it's power, combined, but I'm pleased to say that I generally tick along, a few posts here and there, like most bloggers do. I've already enjoyed reviewing this blog as it's changed over the past 300 posts, and I guess I'll enjoy looking back on in future years too.

My relationship with blogging runs a little deeper too; as it's part of my job. I often get asked about blogging (by customers at Lingo) who, as experts in their business field, who want to know how to blog, how to get the best out of blogging and what blogging can do for them; and when asked, I sing it's praises, I advise that it is of benefit, as well as the fact that they themselves have a lot to offer to blogging, and that it should be fun and easy... and then I suggest that posts should 'tick off' at least a few of the 'watchwords' below:

* Accurate (don't be tellin' lies now)
* Adequate (give the full story, not half of it, and try not to skimp on detail)
* Entertaining (keep the reader hooked, laughing or crying, but never falling asleep)
* Interesting ("I never knew that")
* Informative (educating - the same idea - add value to your reader)
* Useful (what would you be doing reading something that is of no use)
* Unique (you are a unique thinker - be a unique blogger too)

The idea of this post is to share these useful watchwords with you, offer you enough (hopefully) interesting information about why I'm doing that, and to celebrate my 300th post with you!

Happy 300th post, to me and you :)
