To blog is to be

What prompted you to start blogging?

I'm not sure what drove me to start blogging. I guess I was just doing what I've always done..write my life..just in a new format. Reading back over old high school notes I have decided that we were 'blogging' even back then...just on paper. Do kids even still write and pass notes?

Anyway, I started my journey in blogging on a website called opendiary.com. It's still up and running...the website, not my opendiary account. Back then it was just online journaling, the term 'blogging' hadn't been coined yet. When I moved from opendiary.com I actually saved my stories onto a floppy disk. Yes, a floppy disk. Because flash drives weren't common household items. I moved to live journal and then here. Who knows what the future holds..maybe some day I'll actually get my own domain.

Now that I think about it, I've probably been "online journaling" for at least 10 years. That's a long freakin' time. And I can't help but notice that I am just 11 followers away from hitting 100. HHHmmmm...and I've been buttering the Mister up so that I can do a really kick butt giveaway when I do hit 100 readers. Well, pretty kick butt for this blog considering that I've only ever done one other giveaway. So, y'all keep your eye on the Google Followers widget over on the left hand side.

  2. That sure is a long time. I have on and off with mine for about 8 years. I have always loved writing about my life, it's good practice and something that not many do or are good at. I love your blog! It's so cute and simple!
