Happy blogiversary to me!

Today is a profound date for this ol' blog right here, because on August 16, 2008, I reluctantly started to blog.

If you click on the link above you can read my first post, which was, how shall I put it?  Oh yeah, it was BO-RING. And why did Tracey and I look like that? So pale, so so freakishly pale....

So here I am, FIVE years later, and I'm still at it.

I started it because Tracey told me I had to, kept it up because my friends were doing it, and fell in love it with because it fulfilled something in me.  A creative side in me that I guess I didn't even know I had. It gave me a connection to others out there in the world who I would have never known otherwise, and now it's a way for our families to keep up with us.

I love blogging. It's a carefree part of my life that I just allow. Life is serious, our lives are serious, and I like having something that just isn't serious.

Oh and check this out, not only is it my blogiversary, but it's also my 799th post, which annoys me to no end that it's not 800.  But I shan't let that ruin my special day.

So Happy Blogiversary to me! I think I shall send myself some roses.
