100th post!

Today marks my 100th post on Finding Joy in All Things!  I have been having so much fun writing this blog and hearing feedback from people who take the time to read my musings.  It's meant so much that you all keep coming back!  

Here are some fun tidbits from the first few months of Finding Joy: 
1. The blog is read most in Missouri, Wisconsin, Connecticut, New York, and Illinois  
2. Readers come from Canada, Spain, the United Kingdom, Australia, India, the Philippines, South Africa, and Belgium.  
3. The top keyword referral search - after "Finding Joy" - is "Jack Morris, SJ" 

In case you missed them, here are some of my favorite posts: 
Fall in Love ... Today I'm Thankful For ... My Grandma ... Five Years Ago (JVC) ... 100 Things That Make Me Happy ... One Year Later (our community) ... Summer Highlights ... Hospitality and Chili ... Finding Joy in Small Things (the first guest post!) 

As a token of my gratitude for all of your support, I will be giving away a copy of The Happiness Project to one lucky reader!  

The Happiness Project is Gretchen Rubin's year long adventure in trying to feel happier.  Gretchen is New York based author who starts her book by explaining that she already has a good, satisfying life.  But Gretchen, like many of us, feels that she takes things for granted and doesn't appreciate her life as much as she could.  So she takes on a different challenge each month (her marriage, her parenting style, mindfulness, her work) and tries to feel happier.  I've really enjoyed reading the book and want to share a little bit of happiness with you!   

Leave a comment by Thursday sharing something that you've liked about Finding Joy and an idea for something you would like to see on the blog.  The winner will be picked at random and announced on Friday, November 9th! Good luck, and thanks for reading!
