One Hundred!

I am looking at my Google Widget, and it's registering 100 Blog Followers for Pillow Astronaut!

When I first started blogging back in July of 2008, I had only modest hopes that perhaps my family and close friends might visit occasionally to read. If anyone had told me I'd gather any kind of following, I'd have laughed.

Unlike many other blogs who bank on advertisements or gratuitous material -- or even court deliberately controversial viewpoints just to gain readers, I've always tried to stay true to my passion and simply discuss those things in the world of NASA that I support.

I can't tell you how happy I am that in my non-freak-show quest for generating enthusiasm about space research and space exploration, so many folks came along for the ride. Thank you so much to all of my readers for this pleasant milestone!

To all of you, from all of me, I dedicate the sentiment of this great photograph of the test cell hallway at Kennedy Space Center to my followers! :)

I've been following the blog for some time. Your blog gives a different view of the space program.

trust in thrust would be a great blog name.

You could return the follow - I cover science topics once in a while.

thanks

Glad to be among them - I'm sure there are a few dozen or more people lurking below google's radar...

I've been following since the second bed rest study - awesome stuff!

I can't say how I originally found your blog, I think I was cruising science blogs one night. Anyway, I've been following for quite awhile and I appreciate the fact that you DON'T run a freak sho. HA. Keep up the good work.

BTW - that sentiment at the space center is a double entendre. It's the closest you've come to controversial.

@Lisleman, I'll check it out! I used to check out every person who followed me, but lost the time when it hit the 50-mark!!

@ Laksen, love yours too! I hope to feature you soon, in fact!

@Suzanne... so now would be a bad time to weigh in on the whole 'sex in space' thing?? ;)
