Happy 100th Blog Post, Political Chicken!
Here at The Political Chicken, I'm ALL about celebrating milestones like birthdays and such. So, I feel that I would be remiss if I didn't commemorate my 100th blog post! It just happened on Monday and I thought much like a TV series celebrates their 100th episode with a giant cake, I thought I'd share my milestone with you, my supporters and readers with these cute little cupcakes.
Not only have I just posted my 100th post, the blog has achieved another milestone of 15,000 page views! Not too shabby for a local blogger. Some have asked me recently, why the name, 'The Political Chicken'? I say, it was because I thought it was a catchy name AND because I was a bit of a chicken when it came to sharing my views on politics. As you can see, ahem, I've long since lost that shyness. I'll admit that from time to time when I post something that I know is going to be controversial, I get a tiny bit nauseous. Heh.
All that said, I am proud of the work I've done here and will continue to do. I am totally in love with writing and story telling and the unfolding of an idea and an explanation or an argument I'm trying to make. The process is as much fun as the end result, in my opinion. Remember, I'm no longer really shy about that.
I usually do a birthday blog for the Chicken, and here they are, when the Chicken turned one and when it turned two. I also wanted to link the very first article I ever wrote for my blog titled, "Why I'm Supporting Bill Tofte for Congress" here. The link for my 100th blog post, titled "Jared Woodfill: Tenet vs. Track Record" can be found here.
You'll have to wait for my third birthday blog for the top performers, but I almost can't wait to do that, so here is one that I've written recently that is my personal favorite, "Could We Be Living In The Twilight Zone?" It wasn't very popular, but I put a lot of work into it and I'd love for you to read it, too.
So there you have it, from A to Z, or from beginning to, well, I won't say end because I'm far from done here. You've been fabulous, but this is FAR from over! MUAH!
