5 years

I'm wishing this blog a Happy Birthday. Five years and some 600 posts later, I'm still here. And I'd like to think that things have improved from those first few posts. It took me awhile to find a voice and learn some lessons about what makes good content. And I'm still learning.

I started blogging because I had spent my years in law school voraciously reading blogs, and absorbing inspiration from all of the bloggers I read. It seemed I was sensationally late to the party 5 years ago as others had already been blogging for years and years at that point. But now, blogs are still starting up all over. And I'm still reading.

I'm not going to end this by saying, see you in five years, or anything like that. I'm only committed to blogging for as long as it feels fresh and fun and I have something to say. Sometimes things will go silent here as I catch up, because I refuse to blog when it feels like a chore.

To those I've met through this blog, I say thanks. And I hope you all keep reading. And commenting (even if to just say hi). But I will admit that I've never gotten over how odd it feels to see people in real life and have them talk to me about what I post here.

To celebrate, I have a little giveaway planned. Come back tomorrow (I hope, but no promises) to see what I've got up my sleeve. It will be based on a recently finished favorite project. (hint, hint)
