I'm in my eighth year as a paying blogger. My first invoice from Typepad was paid on Sept 24th, 2003. I started writing online as a way to journal on an amazing honeymoon - a three month trip with the love of my life to India. And I continued after this trip. In the past few years, however, writing here has been usually more of an afterthought - a thing I felt I should sometimes do rather than something I wanted to do. I have moved a lot of my blogging time, over the past few years, to Your Kamloops - but I have to be pretty specific about what I post over there.
I am gonna try to rev it up again. Yes, in 2011, I have my facebook and my twitter, but these services have definite limitations. They are not really my own in the way this blog is. I find my grammar and spelling has suffered. We'll see how long this renewed interest in blogging here lasts. I'm just happy I got some words up today.
