The day I posted my 200th secret...

I had a very exciting post planned for today which seems to have fallen apart a little bit. I planned to collect the secrets of other people for my 200th secret post but unfortunately with everyone being so far away and it being the middle of term I haven't been able to collect very many. This means that I am still looking for people to make secrets for me but I will post them as and when I receive them - so keep sending them to me if you haven't already, and thank you to those who already have.

It seems forever ago that I started blogging (back in June of last year). It has become such an integral part of my life now that I don't even think about it most of the time. When something horrible, upsetting, exciting, wonderful, scary happens in my life my instant reaction now is to make a secret and to blog about it. I often wonder how interesting it is for other people to read and worry that there is something deeply self-involved about AI and each post I create. It is the people who come back time and time again to read my blog that keep this feeling away. I am really grateful to all the wonderful people who allow time each day to read my nonsensical ramblings and look at each secret I create. It is the reaction from friends and fellow bloggers that encourages me to continue with this project and will hopefully encourage me to reveal the most painful secrets of all.

So to celebrate reaching the milestone of 200 secrets I am going to show you one of the guest secrets I received as part of this:

This was created by Jake from who creates wonderful illustrations. I really love this secret - it feels painfully honest to me and personally it is something I can really relate to. How do you feel about this guest secret?

Thank you to everyone who has been following this project - it means a great deal to me to read your comments each day. Have a wonderful weekend and here is to the next 100. Enjoy!
