If we’ve all flipped to a new calendar year, it must be my blog’s birthday! And I started on January 1st, 2005, so it must be ten. Which means I’m coming up on the tenth anniversary of my first publishing contract.
I don’t have time to get sucked into my blog archives right now, so I can’t do a top ten list of favorite blog posts. But thanks to occasional reruns, I can grab a few.
Endearing traits from 2007 (I love this one)
Gear shifting and doom from 2007
Truck Ice Capades from 2010
An all-time favorite from 2009: Inside the Slightly Whacked Mind of a Writer
A funny one from 2014: Peeing in the woods…or not
And my favorite blog post of 2014: Adventures in a casino
That’s it. It’s too easy, when you realize there’s ten years of your family’s history in stories and photos, to lose hours going through old posts. But just doing a few reminds me of how much I love this blog (because it’s uniquely mine, not run by other people), and I’m going to do better at not neglecting it in 2015.
