Blogging, it’s better than therapy
June 22, 2006
Today is the two year anniversary of me writing this blog, and what do you know it is raining today just like it was then. The only difference is that I don’t have a pool leaking water all over my already flooded yard.
But I do have a huge pile of dirt turned mud, that was once where my new patio is located. Did you know dirt is expensive? It is. Ridiculously so, in fact. And that is why the landscape contractors left the HUGE dirt pile behind. Rob told them we could use it somewhere else in the yard.
Or we could just let the rain rush down the pile and carry the dirt away in mud rivers all over the lawn. Or let the children grind it into every fiber of their clothing and have it wash down the drain in the washing machine. Any of those would be better than letting the expensive dirt go to WASTE!
This experience of writing and putting myself out here every day has been overwhelmingly positive. I have met people through this blog that I consider friends. I have even talked to some of them on the TELEPHONE. I know, how quaint! And talking to them has effectively cured my phone phobia. I realized that I don’t hate the phone per se, I was just talking to the wrong people on the phone.
Many of these people I will get to meet next month at Blogher, others I am forcing to come and visit me at my house, whether they really want to or not. Honestly, you’ll hardly notice the seven children at all, once you have had a few drinks, that is. And then there are others I will probably never meet in person, but I cherish your virtual friendships nonetheless.
To paraphrase one of my friends, this blog is less about me, than it is about all of you who take time to visit, read what I have to say, leave comments, and incredibly, come back again and again.
At the risk of sounding like a bad greeting card, I love you all. Yes, even you in the back over there.
Many thanks to mary for pointing out my blogiversary to me last night.
