It's probably not smart making Dutch puns on a site which has an international audience, but I just couldn't resist. After 245 days of blogging, I finally added my 100th post. A nice milestone that deserves a little attention and reflection. It's also a good time to tell you something more about the whole Onderhond deal I guess.

100 posts

I remember pretty well that right before starting my blog I read an article that mentioned half of the bloggers quit after the first 4 months. It actually frightened me a bit as I had really no idea what I was getting myself into. Luckily I survived those first 4 months (although I can understand why so many quit) and I'm still here to celebrate my 100th post.

Looking back at my articles I might not really be a true blogger either, as I do my best to write articles instead of blog posts. I've been thinking about removing the word "blog" from my site completely, but the alternatives I came up with never really related as much to the continuity of fresh content as the word "blog" does. I guess I'll just leave it be for now.

As for the whole Onderhond monicker thing, I know it was a strange decision to take a Dutch language url/monicker for a site with an international audience, but it's a nick that served me well on the net for over 8 years now. It's always and everywhere available too, and it's really too closely connected to my persona to simply neglect it. For those who are curious, onderhond is actually a Dutch transliteration of the word underdog (under = onder, dog = hond). And for the pun in the title, honderd = hundred. So nobody can complain about feeling left out :)

Guess that's it for now, on to the next 100 posts! Though I'll probably reach my 1 year celebration before that. For me it's been worthwhile so far, hope it been the same for you.
