My first blog post is dated March 29, 2006. In 2006 there were one hundred and forty others for a total of 141. Each year through 2010 yielded over one hundred posts with 2008 being the most prolific with one hundred and seventy.
There were over fifty posts in 2011 but since then, less than.
With the inaugural post (as you may choose to read) I mused a bit about where this thing is going to go. At the time I had two adult (children) at home. I still do, except the son is back rather than never left. In addition, two cats and two dogs (though not at the same time, RIP Diva Dog ) have been added.
There have been other life events along the way; sexual orientation declaration, graduations, career changes, relationship statuses, and the like. The biggest life event over the last eight years; the death of my dad and then, my mom.
Over one hundred.
Now, with over 850 published (and a couple of drafts) as much as then, I still don't know where this thing is going--but going ON it shall/ I have mentioned this before. I don't know that I've ever stated here in my own space, why I blog: Simply put, I must. Now, more than ever before.
Despite all the talk of numbers, over one hundred, it isn't about the quantity--though I beat myself up something fierce when I go for more than a week without one. With all there is on my mind to say, I can't (consistently) bring myself to write.
Weird, that. .
Anyhoo...consistency. discipline. re-discovery. re-awakening. pro activity over reactivity.
Telling the tale, real or imagined.
