I just noticed that within a week or two I will have written 1500 posts. I did not think when I started blogging that it would become such an important part of my life. Today is my blog's birthday--I started it on January 8, 2007. At first it was an intermittent hobby, partly because being on dial-up internet service at the time limited what I could do. Everything took so long.
Now, it's a daily habit, almost a passion or compulsion. I am constantly thinking about what to write, looking for photos to take, thinking about stories, poems and recipes. It's more than a daily journal; this blog is like an ongoing conversation with you, my readers, and an internal conversation with myself.
I'm thinking about the coming year: what should I be writing about? What are you interested in? More stories? poems? recipes? garden talk? photos?
I would really like to know what you think, and what you would like to see more of or know more about.
And thank you all for being here. It's a pleasure to call you my friends.
