Today I linked to this post from when I was 21 weeks pregnant with Jordan - which was FIVE years ago today! Five years!
Five years ago I was pregnant and thinking I was enormous. Ha! And five years ago today my dad was still alive, and would be for another six weeks.
Five years ago we hadn't yet signed our lives and first-born away to buy the grand hotel and sink our blood and sweat and tears into it for, well, ever.
Five years ago we hadn't so many things. There's a lot to chew on.
One of my friends remarked on my post that it was the golden age of blogging in DC back then, which was true. It was so much fun to blog and meet other local bloggers. I was very immersed in it and made a number of friends who became in-person friends that I still see, even though some of them have left blogging behind.
I wonder periodically if I should do the same. I read a line somewhere recently about blogging being so eight years ago or something of the sort, and I was thinking, well, yah. But I like it. I don't do it so much anymore, particularly as I'm trying to focus on other writing, but...I like it.
So at the moment, my little corner of the Internet is still here. No matter how eight years ago I might be.
