I actually began this blog in 2012 but didn’t really start writing until the following year. 2012 was a year of turmoil for us. We got married (again, legally this time), my partner lost her job in a company buy-out, she got a new job in Michigan, we moved 600 miles to a super small house, sold our family home of 17 years, bought a new house, and moved again. Needless, to say that didn’t leave much time for anything else other than keeping our family together as much as possible.
But, I have learned so much over the last 5 years and continue to learn more every day about blogging. I have learned it is about relationships. The relationships between bloggers and readers. Most of the people who read my blog are family, friends in real life, or bloggers. I love reading what others posts, commenting when something touches me, and following their stories and lives. It is all about the relationships I build and the connections I make. If I don’t read something from you in a while and you haven’t posted an “I Need a Break Post” I begin to wonder and worry a bit that you are okay. Really.
And, in the end I have learned I know nothing about blogging at all. I learn new things from each and every one I follow every day. I just learned that if I want to continue to grow I need to work on moving my blog. I am thinking about it. It is another growth moment for me and am I ready for it? We shall see!
Thank you to each and every one of you who has read my blog, commented, and become my friend. I thank you so very much!
