Three Year Blog Anniversary
My blog turns 3 today! My life has been really busy ever since the New Year, so the anniversary really snuck up on me. I didn’t have time to do anything special, but I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on the three years.
Time has flown by, but I still enjoy writing my blog as much now as I did in the beginning. It’s really nice to have this thing that is constantly chronicling my life. It’s easy to miss the day to day changes that are always happening in one’s life, but having these posts to look back on help show the changes occurring.
Looking back at this last year, I would summarize the theme as “coming out.” For the first two years, I hid behind a purple avatar and my computer screen, fiercely protecting my privacy. This last year, I’ve slowly let go a little, stepping out from behind the screen and taking the time to meet many bloggers in San Diego and some in LA too. As a result, I’ve met some wonderful people, and transitioned many virtual friendships into real life friendships. I also got a chance to do some freelance writing for San Diego Magazine, and even faced my fear of being in front of a camera.
I’m still constantly amazed by the power of the internet and how it’s allowed me to connect to people I may otherwise have never met. I received Japanese Kit Kats I’ve been wanting to try. I found my long lost blogger twin.
I don’t have any set goals for my blog. It seems like things are constantly changing from month to month. I’m just going to go with the flow for now.
Thanks to everyone who has been reading. Seeing that people are reading, and receiving thoughtful and nice comments are what keep me motivated to continue. I hope in a year I’ll still feel as happy about my blog as I do now. If you’re curious, here’s what I had to say on my second year anniversary.
