In September, I celebrated my two year blogging anniversary. I remember my first post and hitting the publish tab. Later that evening, I was anxious to see if anyone commented.
Initially, I posted every day, but soon I realized that wasn’t going to work with my schedule. During those early posts, the excitement of a comment or a ‘like’ kept me going on those days when there were no comments.
As 2014 comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on the wonderful connections I’ve made through blogging. For non-bloggers, they might not understand. For the rest of us, we understand that even though we are separated by state lines and oceans, it doesn’t diminish the strength of the connection. So thank you all for being there, some from the start. You’ve all made my world a little brighter in your own unique way.
For the first time in over two years, I plan to step away from blogging in order to spend the holiday season with my family. In fact, I plan to completely unplug in order to meet some self-imposed deadlines and give a certain someone my undivided attention, especially during our Jeopardy competitions. I want to wish all of you a safe and joyous holiday season. See you in 2015!
