This Is My 300th Blog Post

#300

938 days ago, I started the Excellence In Retail Blog. I launched this knowing that I had something to say but I was not sure or confident how to say it. But there I was with a website and some ideas so…I just…started. This morning I wrote my 299th blog post. I didn’t realize that I was so close to hitting this milestone until a few weeks ago when I actually looked at my post count. At that time I set a personal goal to hit 300 by the end of July.

As I stretched for this goal, I was determined to keep writing content that I thought was relevant and important [not just to write fluff to get there], as well as I have two projects I am currently engaged in and finalizing, and lastly it’s summer break so I am really working hard to stay focused on being active and present with my kiddos. But – I knew that I could do it if I stayed focused. Lo and behold – here we are at 12:22pm on July 26th, 2018.

My drive to get to this goal is a direct result of my network and how inspired and motivated you all keep me and I wanted to say THANK YOU to you for sticking with me AND… in a lot of cases helping me elevate and improve my writing and my knowledge over the last two and a half years.

Thank You!
