On A Mission!

Being somewhat of a slow & steady blogger with a very unpredictable job, I don’t get the liberty to update my blog as often as I’d like to. Usually immersed with housework, pampering my cats and meeting endless deadlines, I admit with much guilt that I sometimes tend to neglect my blog. On a good day though, when I’m suddenly surged with extra energy and inspiration, I bounce back with non-stop blogging and even churn out several posts in a day! That's just how I function I guess. So before I forget, I’d like to thank all my readers who remain supportive of me during my MIA stints. Your patience is very much appreciated!

Over the past few months, I’ve been quite impressed with several blog buddies who persistently update their blogs with a new post almost daily. These bloggers definitely display exemplary determination and ease in maintaining their blogs so it wasn't surprising for them to reach the much-coveted 100th post in practically no time at all!

I believe it started with Janice who hit her 100th mark first. Despite her hectic schedule as a mom to two wonderful little boys, Janice managed to breeze right through her 100th post. With a huge fan base coupled with energy so infectious you can’t help but warm up to Janice. Her stories over at This Is A Miracle are delightful to read and the pictures accompanying them add to my viewing pleasure. She's simply a great friend to have all around!

While I was still fumbling with post number 65, Nick celebrated his 100th post shortly after Jan. Anything Goes! was one of the first blogs I befriended and I’m still a devoted fan today. Nick writes very well and he blogs on many fascinating topics with some very “interesting” ghost stories thrown in as well. When I read his first one, it gave me chills; so much so that I now avoid visiting his blog at night!

And just when I thought it wasn’t possible for me to feel anymore inadequate and glum about my erratic posting habit, Nessa came along with her 100th post! Nessa comes off as a pretty shy blogger to me. She writes wonderfully and gives out plenty of useful information in her posts, which makes her Mumblings one of my favourite stops.

So now, thanks to the excellent blogging spirit they have shown me, I’m inspired to embark on my mission to reach my 100th post by Mariuca’s 1 Year Anniversary, which will be on 3rd November. That date last year was when I wrote my very first post for Mariuca. This personal mission of mine might appear simple for some. For me, it translates into sacrificing my already limited leisure hours to squeeze in additional blogging time to my already packed schedule!

This post I’m writing now makes it my number 82, which means I have to come up with 18 more posts in slightly over a month! Feasible you think? I'd like to give you an adamant YES, but with my topsy-turvy schedule and frenzied lifestyle, I daren’t claim complete confidence just yet! I am however willing to give it my all. Till then, wish me luck and I hope you’re enjoying a very pleasant weekend with your friends and loved ones.

Hola Marzie! Wow you're very near to your 100th post! yay!

Mine is 199 posts now and one more post will mark my 200th posts! By right If I counted my early posts from early blogging days( geocities, rememory, blogspot & friendster), I think I will achieve my 400th posts already! Hah!

Divina September 30, 2007 10:42 AM

Hi sweetie :) Wishing you luck to reach your 100th post quickly! It *IS* hard to write sometimes.. I think of it as a conscious choice, because sometimes it almost turns into a job when you do it regularly ...do you know what I mean? And if you don't post, you feel guilty! Oops, I am rambling, aren't I? ^_^;

Hugs,

Divina.~*

J@n!ce September 30, 2007 11:53 AM

Marzie, you are into your first blogging anniversay next week. Its just one day ahead of Zac's birthday. How cool :):)

You have 18 more posts to go you say? I hope you could reach there in time, but its only a few days ago.... how....? All right, let this miracle mum sprinkle some magical powders over your site to hope it happens... hehe ;p

Also, thanks for the link mentioned there. You are such a honey & I'm glad to pass the mark. I'm calling out to my 200th post very soon. YEAH !! :D

Hello,

We would like to do an interview with you about your blog for
www.BlogInterviewer.com . We'd like to give you the opportunity to
give us some insight on the "person behind the blog."

It would just take a few minutes of your time. The interview form can
be submitted online at http://bloginterviewer.com/submit-an-interview

Best regards,

Mike Thomas

Jacelyn Chew September 30, 2007 7:37 PM

Bobby September 30, 2007 7:38 PM

Marzie, you have proven that less is more time and time again. Who cares if you have less posts than most people for the time you have been blogging. One post from the Genie Princess = 10 posts from anyone else.

I purposefully publish less posts so I can be like you. You give every visitor a sweet, warm welcome that captivates them all.

You rock Marzie!!!!! I will celebrate your 100th post with you and all your wonderful friends.

Because I met you, I have so many great friends from Malaysia, Singapore and even America. Malaysian people are so nice, warm and friendly! I feel like I am part of your great country.

I adore you and your hitting the Technorati TOP 5K simply blows me away! You keep on rockin' and I will be your fan forever:):):)

Mariuca September 30, 2007 7:44 PM

Hello Mike! I'm so sorry I haven't done the interview yet, will work on it soon k, thanks!! :):):)

Genie Princess

Genie Princess

Mariuca September 30, 2007 7:50 PM

Yay! Thanks Bobby, I feel better and even more confident abt my mission now! With ur support and all my lovely Mariucans here, I'm hoping that I can at least reach that 100th mark. Just for my own satisfaction and for my readers and friends of course!

Am glad u've met many new friends here, they're all wonderful peeps and everyone is like so supportive it's simply amazing. I'm so loving it right now!

Have a great night Bobby. :):):)

FL Sam September 30, 2007 8:38 PM

Hi Marzie, Just like 100m sprint, you just have 18m to go. Keep going, you are almost crossing the line. But Nov 2, 2007 still plenty of time.


Malaysia Boleh, Marzie Boleh. :) :)

Mariuca September 30, 2007 10:06 PM

Nessa September 30, 2007 10:11 PM

Hi Marzie:)

Thanks for the mention, that was sweet of you. I had a few sponsored posts which helped (or cheated) me to my 100th post!

I'm sure you can do it. Just don't pamper Phoebe too much for the next 18 days. She'll understand!:D

Mariuca September 30, 2007 10:16 PM

Nessa! Congrats again on ur 100th post, way to go la woman! See, the thing is, ur so rajin doing all the sponsored posts unlike me. LOL! But nonetheless, I am determined to reach that mark and join in the ranks of u 100th post achievers! By that time, ul prob be well on your way to your 200th already huh?

Stop pamperin Phoebe? He he, she entertains me la and her fluffiness makes me very "geram" wan to squeeze and hug her! :):):)

Nick Phillips October 01, 2007 8:43 AM

Hey Marz, trust me, you'll be reaching your 100th post in no time, I'm sure of that. Besides, the numbers doesn't matter does it? It's the content that matters right? Thanx for the mention in your post :) I'm indeed honoured by it. Hopefully I don't run out of things to blabber about though ... Looking forward to reading that 100th post!

Jean Chia October 01, 2007 10:58 AM

Colin October 02, 2007 9:26 PM

Hi Marzie,

I started my Life blog on June 7th this year, and hit my 100th post mid August lol, but my main blog is a little bit older and a little bit behind so I have some catching up to do too :)

You'll soon hit your 100th, as Nick said it's more about content than numbers.

You'll hit your deadline I'm sure :)

Love & hugs to you

Colin

Mariuca October 02, 2007 11:09 PM

Wow Colin!!!! Ur way ahead of me, started ur blog in June this year and reached ur 100th post in less than 3 months!! GP is very impressed... I hope u'll continue workin hard for more success!
