Today is a Wednesday but 15 years ago it was a Saturday. I was home alone and I went into our computer room (no lap tops back on the dark ages) and I started this blog. I wrote a few paragraphs, hit publish, and I added my blog to the knitting bloggers webring . . . because that’s how we followed blogs back in the days before feed readers.
I posted sporadically for a few weeks but pretty quickly settled into a routine of posting Monday through Friday. I figured out how to share photos and I learned that if I commented on other blogs I would get comments on mine. Since then I have written and published 3,585 posts and have received 76,939 comments. I guess we’ve had a lot to say to each other.
Some of those posts have been about knitting but most have been about . . . life. I’ve written about amazing things and sad times, terrific vacations and fabulous parties, loves and losses and transitions, and so much more. I’ve improved my photography skills (thank goodness) and knit some beautiful things and (this is the most important part) I’ve created a community.
It’s that community (which is just a fancy way of saying all of you) that keeps me coming back. Sharing my life with all of you makes it better. You’ve encouraged me and challenged me and supported me and I’m grateful beyond words for all of it.
In other words . . . I’m really glad we’re in this space together. Thanks for sharing this journey with me.
