Tomorrow is my fourth blogging anniversary. I used to care. I used to feel this need to spill, and this was the only place people listened. Maybe Facebook has replaced this blog as my daily connection to humanity so I just don't need it anymore. Maybe I'm too worried about seeming like a pro so I censor myself into boredom. Or maybe I'm just in a lull and need to appreciate this quiet time. I'm glad I'm not hooked on it anymore, even though I feel I owe it to the blog to continue.

At any rate, I want to thank all of you who are still around. Let's see, four years ago I had:

  • two kids at home all day and one in school;

  • no agent;

  • literally no friends;

  • only one book finished, and even then it wasn't ready for submission;

  • an embarrassing level of immaturity;

  • a feeling of insignificance, accompanied by almost constant anxiety;

  • no idea how much I could grow as a human being.

I'm looking forward to the next four years of my life, whether I'm blogging then or not. Who knows where I'll be? Good things have started to happen, and I feel they will only continue. I wish you the same. Have a great weekend.

  1. Happy blogiversary. I still come by and read it. :)

  2. Happy Blogversary! I stopped blogging what seems like a lifetime ago. I'm not a writer, so there is that.

  3. 4 years? Really? That means mine's coming up in just a few months then too.

    I don't know when I found you - '07 I think. Whenever you took the pictures of clearing out your attic space and you took that one of you all sweaty. Man that so impressed me! You were superwoman to me! I went back and read every post you had up.

    If you stop blogging ... and since right now I can't FB, will we go back to the snail mail thing? Because you're important to me and I don't want to lose you. I intend to see how the next 4 years unroll, and the ones after that. Just so you know, you can't get rid of me that easy! *hugs* Love you, lil sis. Happy Blogiversary!

  4. Wow! Four years! I don't know if I'm dedicated enough to stick with anything that long.

    Happy Blogiversary!

  5. As long as you keep writing in some form or another...

  6. Wow! Four years! Awesome! You made me stop and think -- I guess I'm approaching my five year blogiversary shortly here. I don't know when though; I'd have to go back to my Blogger blog to get that information. Heh.

    If you quit, I'd miss you. I can't do FB. I've tried and it just ... isn't my thing. So I guess I'll have to send you more email.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Congrats on the anniversary however you feel about the blog now. The attachment to blogging seems to wax and wane for everyone. I want to stay connected, but the energy for it is not what it used to be.

    Glad you're here. Glad you have an agent. Keep growing!

  8. Sorry I'm slow replying. I got all your comments, but my aversion to the blog was too strong to overcome until today.

    Thanks for all your support, everybody. You mean the world to me.

  9. I know I posted a comment here back when you did this post, but it's now missing. I love how blogger does that!

    Anyhow, write whenever, happy belated blogaversary, and know that Google Reader will clue all your blog friends in when you have a new post. :)
