When I first set up my blog, in 2002, blogging was fairly new. To be fair, I didn't start blogging on a regular basis until 2003, when I went public and told my friends and family about it, so even if I count from then, I've been blogging for close to seven years now. SEVEN YEARS. It is fascinating to me to look back and get a glimpse of my life over that time (take a look at the archives if you don't believe me). I have several friends who start blogs, give them up, start new ones when something happens in their life, then let those fizzle out as well, but I have been posting consistently for SEVEN YEARS. Hey -- it may not be thrilling, given my writing guidelines, but at least I'm consistent. Yay me.
