Amidst the worst storm to hit the East Coast in a generation, I’m reflecting on the past generation of blogging. I’ve been at this little beast for SIX YEARS, which to some is a blip, but to the blog world is almost a generation.
When my son was born and I thought it’d be fun to start a blog about how crazy it was to work, and mommy and wife, and so on, I never thought blogging (in general, not my blog) would become what it has today. A vehicle for change, for fame, and for downright hilarity.
Six years has brought fundamental change to how I receive my information, make connections and stay in touch. It’s almost insane to think how Facebook wasn’t around when I started this old site.
People always look at me crazy when I tell them I started my blog six years ago. They also ask me if I’m going to keep it up. The long answer is no, and the short answer is yes. There are many reasons I find blogging annoying and intrusive after all these years. There’s are many reasons why I want to keep it up. Mainly because I hate quitting things.
So only time will tell if I will be here in another six years. I couldn’t imagine it then, and I can’t imagine it now. But, hey, I couldn’t imagine Hurricane Sandy would flood Lower Manhattan, so I guess anything’s possible.
