Twas the 50th blog post

Twas the night before Christmas, and I sighed with glee,
The gifts were finally wrapped and under the tree.
At last! Spare time, well earned,
To do whatever it was I yearned.
 
I settled in my chair, and planned to check
If I had any e-mail on the internet.
But I clicked on my WordPress account, and what did I see,
The stats had been updated. Oh no! Can it be?
 
I rubbed my eyes and stared in wonder,
Could it be, was it really that magical number?
The number of posts that had started with a blank line,
Could I really have already written forty-nine?
 
Should I? Could I? Will it be risky?
To write before year’s end, number Fifty?
I would, I declared, write like bloggers I admire.
I will write a post to inspire!
 
I grabbed pen and paper, my iPad too,
And a laptop and a notebook, for I knew what I had to do.
For a writer’s job is never done,
Rewrites. Editing. Words to be spun.
 
Until at last I had a message from deep within my soul,
On this eve while we await a visitor from the North Pole.
So please join me and lift your glass of eggnog,
FOR THIS IS MY 50TH BLOG!
 
(AND A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!)
