2 Years…

Jul 21, 2005

Being the trendsetter that I am, I could be called a blogging pioneer.  Ok, maybe not.  That might be is going a bit way too far.  :)   But I did start blogging before blogging was all that popular. 

July 8th, 2003 was my first blog post ever.  I had no idea what I was doing and at the time, I think I probably had about 10 or 15 people per day reading my blog. (Plus, it was cheaper than therapy…)

My blog felt different back then.  But I guess I was different back then as well.  My life certainly looked and felt a LOT different three years ago (heck, 9 months ago…).  And since close friends were really the only ones reading my blog at that time, I probably blogged with a deeper level of openness that I don’t always feel as comfortable blogging with now. 

Things are a little different now.  As transparent and authentic as I try to be, there is always a hesitation to really open up and say what I want on my blog (I get in enough trouble as it is…).  I have to be more careful how I write things and what words I use (now, I have to use a lot of these: @(#*$&#).  I probably don’t share as much about the difficulties I deal with in my life.  It’s a little different now.  And that’s ok I guess. 

So anyway, in joyous celebration of two years of blogging (and more so, since I haven’t been posting very frequently lately…) I am linking you to my original blog called "Weebleland" to browse and journey through.  You may find some interesting thoughts and ideas.  You might also learn some new things about me.

Here’s the link.  Enjoy…

    You did start it all, at least in our little blogging community of friends and former co-workers.
    Thanks for being consistent.

  2. Abe says:

    Great post. You definitely have one of the most interesting blogs that I read on a regular basis. Keep up the good work, buddy.

    Love your blog, but wouldn’t 2003 be two years? You must have started in 2002.

    Sarge – congratulations! You have won my “find the mistakes on” contest! :) No really, thanks for pointing that out. I never was much of a math guy… Geez.

    haha I noticed the math error earlier, but I’m certainly no mathmatician (a speller I’m not either!) I don’t understand that ‘new’ math anyway!
    Congrats on 2 years, thanks for blazing the trail for the rest of us.

    I didn’t even know what a blog was until you started writing. Now that I’ve read other blogs…I think yours is the most interesting and easy to read! Thanks for keeping us up to date with what’s going on in the world.

    I have to thank you also, even though you have no idea who I am. :) My husband introduced me to your blog about a month ago (he works at LWCC)…and it inspired me to make my own, so thank you!

    Guess I’m a little late in posting this. Been busy lately and just read the post this morning.
    None the less, congratulations. You’re the one who got me blogging, so I owe my addiction to you.
    Seriously – thanks, I love reading your blog.
