Just like Spartan, the movie, with only "300" as the title, I thought just putting 400 is catchy and dramatic.
It's my 400th post and after all this while, I still find joy in writing because it's how I organise my thoughts and also my memories. Without this blog, I'd have forgotten all the little stuff that can get lost in the bigger events of life.
Once in a while, I go and check STEEST for something and then I get lost, going through some old stuff I'd written and the same goes for SFGEMS. Sometimes I don't even remember ever writing what I've posted. That, for me, is always a nice surprise.
First, because I think my mind conveniently decided to remove all traces of that blog content knowing that it's been saved. Clever, if I’m right! But it could either be that I am automatically deleting some of those memories or it is just part and parcel of forgetting due to old age. It is a good thing then that I had put down those moments into words.
Second, because I can retrace my state of being, at that given point in time, via what I have written.
And today with my 400th posting, I'm celebrating because I've stuck to keeping this blog alive, even when I've been lazy or busy.
Whether or not I have an audience of one or a thousand, it is still a great thing to me.
