Eight years ago today I began blogging here on WordPress. Before that, The News was on Livejournal for four or five years. My how things have changed, and how they haven’t. Life rolls on. Words come and go. I can’t say the past eight years have been wonderful for me, but, I know that without this blog I would never have gotten introduced to some wonderful people, and some not-so-wonderful. So, overall, this has been an interesting journey so far. I wonder what else is down the pike waiting to be written about.
When I began blogging, I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to accomplish and what its purpose was. That purpose has changed several times. The love of the thing, though, hasn’t dimmed one ounce. This is due to all the readers and emails I’ve received. You all have given me interesting things to think about and write about. The blogging community is one of my favorite communities to visit. Sadly, I don’t get to visit every day, but, each visit is filled with wonderful gems of information, funnies, sorrows, and people just living one day at a time and sharing their progress and setback, like a community should be.
