Happy Blogiversery !!!!!!!
It's been three years today since I started this blog. Wow, did those three years fly by! I wish I could say that I am an expert as this Blogging thing now, but I'm just as clueless today as I was when I began this thing!
My very first blogpost was about our kitchen reno. We had lived in Florida for a wee bit more than 4 months at the time and, at the suggestion of a surprisingly lot of people, I parked my ample behind on a chair in front of my computer and typed my first blogpost. It was very brief. There were a few photos of the new kitchen and when it was done, I felt very accomplished. But I had no idea what I would write about the next day.
In fact, I didn't know if I would have enough ideas to write once a week? Once a month? Once in a lifetime? Or ever again. But the next day, I found myself sitting in the same spot at roughly the same time of day and I wrote something more. And the next day and the next day until well, here we are, three years later and I still seem to have a lot to say! Frankly, I'm shocked.
I had no idea back then that I would still, not only be doing this three years later but that I would still be enjoying doing this. In fact, I think I like writing the blog more and more as time goes by. I still don't know what the heck I'm doing, but I'm a lot more relaxed about it. I used to be so nervous about it. Was I offending people? Boring people? Saying too much? Saying too little? There are so VERY many ways to go wrong. But it seems that it has gone rather right.
I have been dumbfounded by the response this blog has gotten! I mean absolutely pole-axed, gob-smacked, stunned!!! And I am pleased beyond words. And it's all thanks to all of you!
I have gotten so many little comments and notes and and most of it was positive. It's impossible to please everyone and so yes, every once in awhile, I hear from someone out there in the world that doesn't like what I've written. And that's fine too. If you like it, read it. If you don't like it, don't read it. It's pretty simple.
How long will I keep doing this? As long as I'm having fun with it. If it stops being fun, I will stop. If it's not longer enjoyable, I will stop. Otherwise, I reckon I will just keep on keepin' on because I am still having a blast. My hope is that you, my dear readers, will continue to enjoy it at least once in awhile too.
And on that note: I'm taking next week off so 'til we meet again, everyone be safe, have fun and I will see you here a week from Monday and hopefully we will BOTH have lots of adventures to share!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
