Well here we are, 300 posts later. I started this blog in April of 2009 (so a year and a few months ago) to post my random thoughts that I didn't want to bore those around me with. I figured it would be a good way to keep in touch with my long lost bffs across the state and country. I was made fun of a bit at first (a scene in a bar comes to mind...) but honestly I find blogging fun and a good outlet for my thoughts, plus a way to stay accountable about all the fun projects floating in my head.
It is always fun to look back on a bit of history, so here's the link to my first post:
In true writer fashion, it frames out an introduction to my blog - why I started, what I plan to write about. Most of it has come true (bargains, recipes), some has been scrapped (I don't write about school like I said because, um, that is just not good for job security), and some things I didn't even know would happen (buying a house and all that has come with that).
I then went on to ramble about some random stuff, as I tend to do - a trip to Big Lots and some stuff about the Zoo. I still remember sitting on the couch creating my blog and writing the post - Jake was making soup and I was watching TV.
I got my first comment in May. My most viewed post to date has been the review of Teton Trek that the Zoo tweeted about, with a tour of my neighborhood as Spring set in coming in second. I haven't been exactly constant with my posts but have been better than could have been predicted. The fact that I have stuck with this is pretty amazing, honestly.
My first "blog" was back in about 7th grade. My friend AJ (always the one to be ahead of trends) had started a website where she had a journal where she gossiped about her friends at Snowden. I thought it was a cool idea and I started one. I wrote a few posts and ditched it - but little did I know that I'd live with AJ in college and have a blog later after college. Life is funny like that.
Here's to 300 more!
