Blogging changed my life. I was using skills that I hadn't used in a very long time. I was writing and planning future posts. I was using my camera to document everyday events that would have likely gone unnoticed without the blog. I was meeting people who shared their lives and interests. I was building a blogging family who I cared about. We shared our daily lives, our successes and disappointments, our dreams and our fears. We celebrated each others milestones and mourned each others losses.
Back in 2008 I never expected to be blogging five years later or to be approaching my 1000th post which I'll be writing next month. There have been times when I faced writers block for one reason or another, but my blog has become an important part of my day and I look forward to many more posts.
