Happy ten year blog anniversary to me!
I started this blog during my senior year of high school, and have blogged daily since then. While I originally started my blog on January 1st, 2010, a few days into the year I missed a day, became disappointed with myself for starting off on a bad foot, and stopped until the tenth of January after a dear friend Kady encouraged me to keep at it. From January 10th, 2010, until today, January 10th, 2020, I have been a daily blogger. Today is not my last day of daily blogging, but rather a post to celebrate this milestone.
I missed two days of blogging in 2013, but as far as I can see, I have not missed any other days. Accounting for leap years, that basically evens out to only missing leap days, really, so I have pretty successfully blogged daily for ten years straight. Not all of my entries have been long or of fantastic quality, but they're all there. I'm really proud of that.
This is not going to be my last blog entry. I thought about it, but now is not the right time. I would honestly like to reread my entire blog first, and really delve into my thoughts and how much has changed in that time. And liked I've said before, I'd love to get a physical copy of my blog printed as well.
To Lexa and Jon, my friends who I met through blogging, you two are incredible. I never thought I would make friends through blogging - it has always just been a personal project. I'm sure in the beginning, when my blog was more public and I linked to it on occasion, I would have found it pretty cool if I had gained some sort of following. However, even though it's sort of a glorified journal at this point, it's really amazing to me that I was able to meet people because they found my blog and we hit it off.
Thanks to Blogger for your orange and white logo that is is familiar to me as any other social media app.
This is not the entry to expound upon all the milestones in my life in the past ten years, but rather one to say thank you to anyone who has ever read this blog, and also to congratulate myself. What I've done is pretty cool, and I'm proud of myself.
