I realized this week that I was about to have my anniversary ... of one year of blogging. My first post was on July 31st, 2007. I have to admit that I'm as surprised as anybody that I actually stuck with it. It has made me a little introspective about the whole mess.
Looking back at it I must say that it has been a really great year. I've rekindled many friendships, from high school and beyond. I've been able to keep in touch with many other close friends too. I've also made some great new friends, like Kyle. But the best part is witnessing the co-mingling of these various circles of friends, like Chuck spoofing Paul's video; my sister-in-law, Nikki, obsessing over a "Where in SC" challenge (even if she WAS too shy to post a comment); Charlotte posting comments on Alan's blog; and so on. It makes me smile to see so many people that I dearly love (although separately) crossing paths online and sharing laughs and becoming friends. I am blessed to have so many great friendships and I'm glad I fell into this blogging thing as a way to enjoy them even more.
Thanks everyone, for a great year!
