On February 9, 2011 I sat in front of my computer, nervously emailing back and forth with Smidge, trying to decide if I should start a blog. Could I do it? Would anyone even care about what I have to say? Failure is hard for me to handle, did I really want to put myself out there for all the world to see? With some pats on the back from Smidge, and lots of back and forth on my blog title, I dove in and clicked Publish.
I can’t fully describe what writing on this blog means to me but those of you with your own blogs probably understand anyway. My readers, you guys, have been awesome. I couldn’t have asked for a better reception and I’m truly grateful for the friendships I’ve developed. I’ve gotten away from writing for many reasons, most of them not particularly good, but I still like knowing that you guys are out there and always willing to welcome me back when I see fit.
Last year I set a calendar reminder so that I wouldn’t forget my blogerversary. I had to put it on the day before so I had time to write something. When I saw the entry there the other day it made me realize how much I’ve missed writing. I’m hoping to start up again. I’m not sure what tone it will take or how well I’ll stick to the plan, but thank you for being you and putting up with me.
Hap, hap, happy blogerversary to me!
