I've been reading other blogs that are celebrating their blogging anniversaries. It's hard to believe I've been blogging since 2005. While mine isn't until November, I'd figured I'd take a moment to recognize where I've been. I'm coming up on my 4th year anniversary and while probably forget to mention it when it happens.
Geez does time fly! My life has done a complete turnaround since those dreary days living alone in that big old house. Bandit and I trying to make a new life for ourselves.
Somethings stay the same; for me getting up early hasn't changed. I still find morning blogging best for me. When I first started blogging I would write from the warm confines of my bed. I haven't done that in years.
Each place I have lived since I've eventually got into a routine with its own little blogging spot. Year 1, as I mentioned in my bed in the master bedroom of my old house.
Year 2, after my divorce and selling of the house above my sister and brother-in-law took me in. Each morning you could find me at their dining room table with a cup of coffee from her individual cup maker and I'd be writing about my simple little life. I have good memories of living with them.
Year 3, I blogged from my new apartment. This was at the complex that had a catastrophic fire just as Chris and I found our new house. At that apartment, you could find me writing in the little side office. That was a great apartment despite not being very fireproof. The complex has survived three fires.
And now Year 4, I blog from my own dining room table. Though I have an office on the second floor with a much better laptop (Chris'). I still use this old clunker (with it's missing X key and flickering screen...one of these days I'll break down and get a new one). I connect with an old wireless card to the router upstairs.
So that about covers the last 3.5 years of blogging. To 3.5 new more...
