After a very busy few weeks (or maybe months) I decided to spend a little time catching up on some blog reading this morning. One of the posts I read with interest was 8 years of blogging at Thro’ a glass darkly. While the post is several days old, I’ve probably been reading Saija’s blog for most of that eight years so I decided to leave a comment. As I was thinking of what to write I thought of today’s date and realised that it’s a blogging milestone for me today.
I’ve now been blogging for nine years.
The first time I ever heard of blogging I thought, “What a stupid idea. Why would you want to share all your most personal thoughts with a bunch of complete strangers?”
Since that time a couple of things have happened. Firstly, I realised that I only had to share what I decided I wanted to share, and secondly, a lot of those ‘complete strangers’ have become good friends, even though I’ve never met many of them face to face.
I’ve really enjoyed the ups and downs of blogging and what you see now is rather different than the original post back on the 3rd of November 2003. I hope you enjoy what you read here and that you’ll stay with me as I enter my tenth year of blogging.
I’ve done so much in the past nine years and a great deal of the journey is available for anyone who wants to trawl through my archives.
