Celebrating 100 posts

Well, I almost forgot to make a blog post about posting 100 blog posts!  I started blogging in January of 2009.  I actually had another blog that I began on.  I really don't know what happened to those posts.  I know I deleted the actual blog, but I thought I saved the posts.  Oh well, this is post 102 on this blog, Gleanings From Gail.  I guess I have learned some about blogging since I began, but not a tremendous amount.  It is something I enjoy.  I have made new friends, found my "niche" I guess you could say (home decorating), and came across so many great ideas.  All  the projects that people get done in their homes simply amaze me.  I have also saved my husband some money by having a blog.  Before I started blogging, I would pour over home decorating magazines.  I haven't bought but two or three magazines all year.  Sorry magazine companies.  I just get to look at so much more decorating in home decorating blogs! 

I wanted to do a giveaway for my 100th post, but I didn't know what to give away!  I actually did do one give away.  It was for my 30th follower.  I need to learn more about this. 

Anyway, to celebrate my 100th post, I thought I would re post my very first post on this blog.  Hope you enjoy!  Please let me know if you do.  I don't get many comments! 

Speaking of comments, I do want to thank all of you who have visited Gleanings from Gail, and all those who have commented.  I hope to be able to improve my blogging skills and to have grown to some degree in the next 100 posts!
