When I logged on this morning, a handy-dandy little icon was illuminated. I had no idea what it was, so I clicked on it. It was WordPress wishing me a happy 6 year anniversary. Six years! Really? That long ago?
Here it is. My first post on August 13th, 2009……
Hello blog world!
I am so glad Al Gore invented the internet! This is amazing. Sitting here, at my computer, sending messages to……..? Who will read this? Who are you? What caught your eye to visit this page? I am so new to this blogging concept. And what is so amazing is before I ever entered my first blog I did a little research on you other bloggers out there. Did you know that there are grandmothers out there who blog? Seriously! Grandmothers! Now I am REALLY feeling behind the times. I’m somewhere between 30 and a Wal-Mart greeter. Not yet a grandmother, thank God!
So. Welcome, Me! Looking forward to seeing exactly where this will all lead.
Wow. How green I was. And enthusiastic about starting. And in awe of all of you.
And that has remained unchanged. I am still in awe of all of you.
The grandmothers. And mothers. And chefs. And teachers. And DJs. And sons. And daughters. And curmudgeons. And travelers. And writers. All amazing writers. All of you.
Sure, I’ve dropped to the wayside, hung back in the shadows, lately. I’m distracted by other things…many other things, that have turned my attentions elsewhere. For now.
But I still peek in here. I still get motivated to vent or whisper or chuckle once in a while with a post.
I’m still glad that Al Gore invented this crazy, amazing internet thing.
I’m still somewhere between 30 and a Wal-Mart greeter.
I’m still not a grandmother. Yet. (And I still say, thank God to that!)
I still am not so sure where this all will lead. It’s still a journey. Still interesting. Still fun.
And I’m still here.
Happy 6th Anniversary to me!
And thank YOU ALL for peeking in from time to time. I’m so very grateful that you’re still listening.
