In and around this time back in 2010, I took the leap from private to personal blogging.
Two years of blogging is considered “long” by most accounts, but add to that the fact I actually began writing my blog in September 2008, and I’ve instantly become a full-fledged bloggy dinosaur.
There really aren’t any words that properly express my experience over the past 4.5 years, nor how my blog – and the social realm around me – have evolved during that time. My early posts were written in about 10 minutes tops and meant as a quick memory dump for family and friends back in Illinois to read.
Things changed in March of 2010.
And again around March of 2011.
And now I sit in March 2012, a reformed daily-posting-and-visiting-back-for-every-comment-left-aholic, with another new take on blogging, the mom blogosphere, the regular blogosphere and social media’s impact on business.
I feel like I’m in a good place right now, but know that my experiences will again be different next year.
I’m grateful for what mom blogging has taught me, but I’m also grateful for being exposed to so many others outside of the mom blogger realm.
I’m grateful for my friends.
I’m grateful for my business.
And I’m grateful every time Kate turns to me and says, “Be sure to tell your blog friends I said that, mama!”
