Three years ago today, I started this blog.
I know for sure, because Word Press sent me a note to say “Happy Anniversary!” It’s nice when someone remembers your anniversary.
During the past three years, there have been many changes in my life. There have been deaths, graduations, job changes, moves, births, school ending, school starting, relationships ending and new ones starting in my family since that first post.
I entered the blogging world simply to have an outlet for writing. Here is my original post. Nothing to brag about! I think I have expanded a bit since then.
My little blog has just a few regular readers/commenters. I love all of them! I feel as though I have a circle of good friends with whom I discuss the things happening in my life. Or things that are happening in the world. It’s very enjoyable. I especially enjoy reading the blogs that others write. It certainly humbles me. There are so many wonderful writers out there that I could read blogs 24 hours a day and never be bored. Blurry eyed, maybe, but not bored!
So here I am a my age with a three-year old. A preschooler in the blogging world. In so many ways, I am just getting started, just hitting my stride here. A three-year old should be growing quickly.
But this blog is not really growing. And that’s fine with me. I don’t like crowds. I hate big parties. I don’t do well talking to a large group. So I won’t be linking it to facebook, or putting it on big search engines. I don’t want people I know in the “real world” to read the blog. I don’t want to have to explain or apologize for things that I write. If more people read this, that’s great. I do enjoy seeing the stats go up. But it’s okay if they don’t.
So my little preschooler of a blog will just continue to move along. I may post a lot, and I may not. I started this because I thought I would enjoy it. When I don’t enjoy it, I won’t do it.
Thanks to all of you who stop by regularly. It means a lot to me to have gained your friendship. If you comment, all the better! I hope you will continue to visit.
