200th Blog Post


It sort of sneaked up on me, but today marks my 200th post on this blog! Working on The Earthly Paradise has been such a wonderful experience. I've especially enjoyed working on the blog since graduating from my MA programme this summer. I think being able to write every day has definitely helped ease me into "the real world." I don't think I could ever bear to quit University cold turkey! Doing research for my blog helps me to feel like I'm still in school (which, for me, is a good thing).

Thank-you so much to all of you who stop by here to read my blog. And thank-you for your amazing comments! I enjoy reading so many of your blogs--each of them have introduced me to a new aspect of the world. I look forward to doing this for a long time!

This picture was taken this spring while I was in beautiful France with my mom. The lovely village of Dinan is in the background (thanks, mom, for reminding me where the picture was taken!).

Congratulations Margaret. I so enjoy reading your research which explores all sorts of ideas that I am not familiar with. I really appreciate the hard work that must be involved to prepare and post on such a regular basis. Thank you!

This is one of my favorite places to visit, so I hope you will be "blogging" for a long time to come!

Lovely French photo!

Margaret,
I'm new to your Blog but what an introduction. It was through your blog when I did a google search for Walter Crane, that I got an introduction as to what blogging is all about. I'm a convert thanks in part to you. Congratulations on your 200th and many more to come. Stephen

Just a helpful correction: this photo was taken overlooking the beautiful town of Dinan, where we spent a fabulous rainy/sunny day exploring the old walled fortress in beautiful Bretagne. Congratulations on your wonderful blogging achievements, through which I feel like a very successful mom! I love you, and happy anniversary (both of them)!

Congrats, Margaret. I really appreciate that you post regularly with such thoughtful content and beautiful visuals.

You make blogging look easy which I suspect is not the case. It shows real commitment.

Cheers!
