It was 10 years ago today that I made my first post on this blog. Hardly seems possible.
I remember at the time, I wondered just how long I'd be posting at this site. I've never been a regular journal writer, so I thought I might give it up rather quickly. But I've stuck with it. And actually, I've found I like having a way to go back and figure out when something happened.
After all, for a while I timed life events by where I was living. But since I've been in my condo for 8 and a half years now, that gets fuzzy. Yes, even with the succession of roommates I've had. But with way, I can pin point exactly when something happened.
Of course, since this is public, I am a little more careful about what I share. I know, I only have a couple of regular readers, but I would hate for someone to see this and be hurt by something I posted, even years later. I realize this creates some confusion at times, but that's the way it has to be.
At times, I've tried to change the focus of the blog slightly, but I always come back to it being more of a journal. You can see my evolution of interests as the years go by. I know I'd get more interest if I stuck to one topic, but I'm not sure if I have enough to say on any one topic to make a regular blog of it.
And so it reflects my life, lots of different interests. And that's how I want to keep it.
If you are reading this and have stuck with me for some time, thank you. I do love the comments I get from friends or strangers, a couple of whom have become friends.
So I don't intend to give it up any time soon. Here's to another 10.
