It is my blogaversary!!!! 5 years ago today I made my first post which consisted of the following:
So I am going to try this whole blog thing so that I can chronicle my life for you all. Of course that is going to take all of about 2 seconds but I thought with our exciting trip coming up it would be a good way to journal all of our exciting adventures. Let me know what you think!
Following that silly entry came an additional 1556 posts of varying nature—from our travels and life in Australia to a weekly teapot post to Wordless Wednesday offerings to devotions to Chrisism’s and more. I have touched on a variety of topics including grief, moving, parenthood, marriage, current events and stories about my own foibles. To say that I have found my voice is an understatement. I have always loved the written word and reading and writing my thoughts down has always been a part of who I am but having a blog with real live “followers” has made it more real to me. Thank you for reading and always giving me such positive feedback and comments.
My husband suggested I start a blog. My son helped me get things organized and got me switched over from Blogger to WordPress a few years ago. I have learned how to do a lot on my own that I never thought I would have a clue how to do. I have stretched and for once in my life I have had the discipline to keep going. This is one of the few things that I have stuck with in my life so I guess it is something that is worthwhile.
So thank you to all of you who have been with me for any part of the journey. I am so glad you are here with me. Without you my words would fall into the blogosphere and spin around emptily reaching none. I am grateful for each of you!!!
Another thing I am grateful for is for Hilary and her Friday Blog Hop!!! She tirelessly posts statements each week for us to use on our own blogs and this week is no different!!!
