Celebrating 100

Today I’m celebrating my 100th post!

By its nature, a blog is a very public venue. A blogger shares his/her thoughts, ideas, and oftentimes bits of their personal life. Out of the millions of people searching the Internet for something that interests them, only a very few will discover your blog. They read it and come back for more—or they don’t. It’s an act of finding a common ground of interest and it’s important for the blog writer to know whether what is shared has some meaning to others.



To thank you for being with me during this amazing adventure in the world of blogging, I’m offering a gift of a set of three painted metal bird ornaments I found recently. Amongst other symbolic meanings, birds represent ideas and the world of shared communication—pretty much evocative of what I want my blog to convey.

Please leave a comment on this post telling me what you like—or even dislike—about the Junie Moon blog. I’ll keep the give-away open until midnight on December 30 and will draw the winning name on December 31.

June, I found you through the AB In Stitches Sew-Along on Flickr and was very excited when you started a blog. I love reading your daily insights but what I love most of all is how often you help others. You are an inspiration to me and many others on how we all should live and I thank you for that!

Happy 100th June! I am proud to say I 'knew' you, even before your blog, from Flikr.

And the reason I keep visiting? The generosity of your spirit that showed in the countless friendly, supportive comments you left on photos, shines through even stronger here.

Congratulations and here's to many more entries.

Congratulations on your 100th post. Your blog is one of my favorites. You are an inspiration from beginning to end. You make me want to "do more"..."be more". You appear to live life to it's fullest in the most genuine way......like I said before.... truly an inspiration :-)

You've got a great blog going and I'm glad I came across it. Being a bird lover/watcher I can't resist getting in on this drawing!

100 posts? I love the post and your ideas and you sharing your life. I dislike that sometimes life takes over and you can not post everyday and I can not read everyday! LOL! Congratulations! Grace

RC said...

I can't remember how I got to your blog but I do read it every day. That is one of the reasons I keep coming back! You post every day and some people don't blog but every other day, week, etc. I live in a somewhat remote area and your bloggings help me feel more "connected" to the human race. Plus - you are extremely talented in so many ways and I learn so much about different arts and crafts and cooking, etc. Love the birds too! We feed them all winter:) and of course give them unfrozen water to bathe in and drink. Happy New Year!!

Miss Sassy said...

June, I was thrilled when you finally started a blog as I was watching your flickr photos through my bloglines account for new updates to your creativity. Your creativity is inspiring and you are so talented. I think the best thing about you is your kind heart which comes through your blog very easily. Congrats!

Beth said...

Hurray for 100 posts! I love all of your gorgeous photography, and the lovely crafting you do. Thank you for your wonderful blog.

Kristie said...

Congratulations, June! I always knew you were a blogger waiting to happen. I like this blog because it's you, and because now other people get to know how talented and kind you are.

You rock!

Jan said...

Hmmm..How did I find your blog? I think I saw a picture I liked on flickr, which then led to a blog, which then led to AB In Stitches sew along. I noticed right away what kind and thoughtful your comments you left on everyones submissions. But your eye for detail in all of your projects kept me coming back to your flickr page. Your work looks as though it is right out of a magazine. I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog each day and look forward to more in 2008. Happy 100th post!

Lynn said...

Hi June! I found your blog through flickr through all the comments you left for the Amy Butler In Stitches Sew Along. I love your blog because just reading me calms me down. It so soothing to read your blog and your ideas and inspirations are truly amazing. Happy 100th post!

Carol said...

I like that you are everything that I strive to be (and fall way short most days)and that's why I come to your happy blog. It's all about kindness, sharing, cheerfulness, warmness, being and doing good. Your blog makes me want to do better things but never makes me feel bad when I don't.
Happy 100 June!

Congratulations on your 100th post! I’m a rather new visitor and don’t want to judge your blog, so I first would like to come back more often! Reading your 100th post you seem to be a very considerate and kind person. I hope you enjoy the next 100!

Dear Junie,

I love so many things about your blog, but I especially appreciate that the REAL YOU shines through every post and heartfelt project that you do. Your blog really conveys the scripture:
"Love one another."

Happy One Hundred!

Happy 100!! I've enjoyed your blog from the very beginning, you make the most beautiful things - and I have a feeling you don't put up with any BS! You're straightforward, honest, and your personality just shines! I'm so happy you're here & not just @ flickr anymore! :)

rohanknitter said...

Congratulations on 100 posts! I knew that if you ever started a blog it would be lovely and it is. (used to just keep track of you on flickr) I love to see all your inspiring projects, plus your kindsness, generosity and positive spirit just shine through.

Amy said...

Congratulations on 100! I discovered your blog through your kind comments left at Feeling Stitchy. But I would have to say that I really enjoyed your earth friendly cleaning recipes. I mentioned that I am using your recipe for laundry detergent and love how white and soft my clothes have become, thank you!!

calamitykim said...

Oh, Junie! I think I am over the Moon for you and your Blog. I have enjoyed all the fun posts full of crafty adventures, food and Photos of all your shenanigans! I appreciate the time you take to come and visit me and I always smile when I read your comments. I wouldn't change a thing- I change my Blog often when I get tired of it or it starts to not feel cozy. If I knew how I'd have polka dots on my sidebar!_ But yours is fine! The pictures great!
I love it that we can travel and share and learn and grow and giggle together!
Happy Happy 100th Post oh, Junie Moon!!!

Rosemary said...

Nice to meet you. I just found you through the graphic fairy.

Check my blog sometime.
Congrats to you,
Rosemary

Congratulations on your 100th post! While I am a relatively new visitor, I have found encouragement & blessings here; I believe it's the "common ground" you mention- whether hobbies, life, or philosophy. Anyway, I look forward to following the path of life with you as my friend.

craftycat said...

Congrats on your 100th!!!!
I love reading all that you have to say. Your pictures are outstanding, even just a picture of the simplest things are just so beautiful to look at.

Hugs!!!

Thimbleanna said...

June, I've finally managed to catch up on your blog after the holiday. Happy 100th -- that barely seems possible -- it seems like you should be way beyond 100 already! I love everything about your blog -- you're always full of inspiration!

Karen said...

I like your blog because you have wide ranging and multi-dimensional interests - always something new on your blog. I love your blog because your generosity of spirit and kindness shine through. Your energy and ability to finish projects and nearly daily commitment to the blog inspires me. I found you through Club Little House.

Robyn said...

First off June Congrats! WOW 100 posts! Not that was hard for you dear friend! I love your blog! It is full wonderful ideas and touching stories. Ways to help other people and your travels. Some people have said better than me here, but I truly am inspired by you and your blog (writings). I thank my lucky stars that I came across your fantastic blog! It is a daily joy!

Marcia said...

Congrats on your 100th post. I like your photos and love the links you provide for instructions. Your thoughtful gifts inspire me. Thanks for sharing

Suzanne said...

100 Posts! WOW! What I like most is that you opened the world of blogging to me. You're my mentor on blogging how-to's and craftiness! You put an elegant touch to projects and they don't have that yucky home-made look. I try to remember that so my 'stuff' looks classy, like yours, and not trashy...! Also like that you tell where to find things on the web. I've used countless sites you've posted. Thanks a bunch!

Suzanne said...

100 Posts! WOW! You are my blogging mentor, and have opened the world of blogging to me. I like that your crafts are classy, not trashy, and you always present them in an elegant way. I try to pay closer attention to that in my own crafts, now. I also like that you tell where to go on the web, and have found that most helpful. Thanks a bunch!

meg said...

Oh, June, you know exactly what I love about this blog: your positive voice, the variety of ways to share our gifts with others through the good works you often mention, and the many and diverse interests you discuss. That's it in a nutshell. Reading your posts are always a joy. :) Thank you for sharing.

coffeechris said...

I love your grace and genuine caring ways you express through creativity and word.

CalicoDaisy said...

June, How could anyone write a dislike comment? You always have something interesting to comment on and offer many great ideas. It was a big thing to post through the days leading up to Christmas with inspiring thoughts, projects, and recipes. I'm hoping the little advent house will still be available on clearance at Target when I get back there!

I enjoy the somewhat randomness of your blog...always something new and different to read and see. The healthy countdown was super interesting. Thanks for sharing.

see you there! said...

Congratulations on reaching 100. I came here through Mrs. Staggs (lovely lady!) and have returned because you have interesting posts and share so much. You encourage us me to put my meager talents to use - i.e. that bandage brigade.
