I can't believe it, but it feels about right. Blogville is a weird and wonderful place to be involved in - all kinds of things going on with all kinds of people. Each person behind their own screen, typing and posting on topics that interest them. I've definitely enjoyed every ride, the good, the bad and the downright unbelieveable.
In the past two years:
I've started with one blog, and ended up with three!
I've spent countless hours in front of my computer, at all hours of the day and night, catching up on other people's writings.
I've been invited to read about people, sometimes so different from me, and yet, so similar in many ways.
I've had to imagine people dealing with situations that I have never faced.
I've been educated about opinions and experiences so different from mine.
I'm met many people I would never have met otherwise and I'm grateful for both the real and virtual friendships I've formed.
I've been inspired to dig deeper into myself and become a better person.
I've also been inspired to rekindle my love for reading and storytelling.
I've rejoiced with bloggers, cried with bloggers, prayed for bloggers, laughed along with bloggers.
So: many thanks to the bloggers who have made me laugh out loud with their funny and witty posts. Thanks to everyone who has dropped a kind word or two on my blogs, people who have encouraged me through their comments, people who have sent me emails with words of advice and comfort. I don't want to mention names, but you know who you are! Most of you I might never meet, but you have contributed to my life in many ways, thank you!Many people start blogging, but for one reason or the other, they feel like they have to stop. For me it's like an open journal, it's an addiction I don't want to let go of, and it's a form of release. I hope I can continue to blog as long as there is life and I can access a computer! So here's to many more years in Blogville. Cheers!
