This past Friday was the two year anniversary of Life in My Empty Nest, and I couldn't let it pass without some reflection on what blogging has meant to me. When I first hit that publish button, on that first post, two years ago, it was a scary feeling, putting my words, thoughts and feelings out in the world. I had planned on trying to write five times a week and I wondered if that would grow tedious over time.
Two years and 485 posts later, I can safely say that I have met that goal, with only a few days off here and there for vacations, holidays and every day busy life. The words have come easily and the variety of the posts I like to write, has kept things fresh for me and I hope for you too.
Perhaps my favorite thing about blogging is the feedback and connections built with those who read every day. It is a strange thing to feel a connection with those I have never met, but I do, especially with my fellow empty nesters. I do believe if you write from the heart, about what inspires you, you will find like minded readers who can become friends. It has been an interesting, fun and introspective two years.
Here's to many more - thank you so much for reading :-)
Happy Monday - planning a little summer fun this week!
