So are we doing this together — submitting to BlogHer? In this post, I wrote about how we could all look over our posts from the last year and pick a couple of favorites and then nominate them. (Yes, you can nominate yourself — it’s not against the rules!).
Flipping through the last year has been a fun and nostalgic experience. Do you ever just start reading your past posts to remember where you were, what you were doing, how different things are now? I know people blog for all kinds of different reasons, but I’m starting to use mine as more of a repository for memories. I guess I find that as life speeds ever faster by me, that these little vignettes preserve this moment so that I can remember the bigger story of us.
And what better way to mark a blog’s milestone than a little review of where we started and where we’ve ended up? This weekend marks my second blogiversary. That’s right — two years here, writing, writing and writing some more in this tiny corner of the Internet. For me, it’s as hard to identify a favorite post as it is to pick a “favorite” child. Today, it’s this one — or maybe this one. It’s hard to say.
I also just want to thank you all for reading along. It’s been lovely meeting all of you through reading your blogs and comments. And before I feel completely churlish, I have to give a special shout-out to the patient Kim at Craft-Create-Connect who nominated me for a Sunshine Award. Thank you so much, Kim! I promise I’ll try to keep up my end of the award as soon as I can.
Now it’s your turn. What’s your favorite photo or post(s) from last year?
