To Blog or Not To ... ...


I have lost track of how long I have been blogging, but I think it is about 6 years. Nearly 4 of which have been on here.

Like many of us I think I started off with real gusto and posted something on a near daily basis. This level of output is hard to sustain as is the content when you don't get away from the daily routine as much as is necessary to generate new material. That said, it is amazing how much you can actually blog about when you have three young children!

I spent a while the other day (the weather was rank and the children were at school) re-reading my previous posts. All 180 of them, well most of them. If I do say so myself they were not as dull and mundane as I thought. There have been alot of highs and lows along the way and many laughs many came from the comments fellow bloggers have left for me. It is hard to believe that when I started blogging over 6 years ago I only had my two boys and my daughter wasn't even on the way!!

Time flies.

If I knew then what I know now would I have changed a thing? Probably not as what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right?! There has certainly been a lot of debris thrown in my path for me to dodge and deal with in that time though.

Here's to the next 6 years of posting the goings on of me and mine......

It's easy to become a slacker at posting blogs. Plus, life gets in the way. Just keeping in touch is often enough.

I think I also started in 2006. My life is so boring that I have to get imaginative sometimes to come up with something unique to blog about. I've had some rough patches and some good times during those six years. Guess that's just how life is.

I started blogging in 2006 when I realized I needed some contact with the outside world, and my life has been enriched by all the marvelous friends here on MyBloggers, you included. Maybe I'll go back and read some of my early posts, sounds like a good idea.

Yesterday was my fifth anniversary with Donna--the day we met in person after 8 months and stopped off at the hospital so I could have a colonoscopy before our date. Instead of trying to remember the day, I went back to the first blog place and looked it up (a year before mybloggers). I usually think of all the things I want to write about when I'm making a comment on somebody else's page, then I forget about it when I move one... Yup, just like now....
