Today is all about me. Or my blog, anyway.
I'm so excited to celebrate my blog's 15th anniversary. My blog which started with the ignomious words:
I've managed to find some things to say over the years.
I even wrote an eBook. I never expected to write a book. (It's entirely free, although I'd love to hear what you think about it if you read or use it!)
When I started, blogging was a "web log." It was exactly what it sounds like, a list of interesting links that you tracked in a log on the web. Sometimes you commented upon them. Sometimes you commented extensively upon them. Sometimes you didn't.
Blogging has changed. Images became of the utmost importance. Ideas found greater explication. It began to have its own writing style. That style, which I've been loathe to adopt preferring to ramble on conversationally, makes reading and skimming and gleaning ideas easier.
When I asked my kids about how I should celebrate, M-girl said I needed balloons ... so you get balloons.
When I asked blogging friends, Pam invited me to be on the Homeschool Snapshots Podcast, which I did and it was published yesterday. (I never expected anyone to interview me, either!)
Another celebratory idea was an old-fashioned de-lurking party. If you are a regular reader or subscriber of ladydusk via email or feed reader, I'd love it if you commented here or on Instagram or on Twitter or on my new Facebook page and let me know you're reading. For me, blogging is a lot about community and the friendships I've made over the years. I'd love to meet you or greet you!
I'm even going to link mine in the link box. When I decide what it is. Nothing like procrastination.
