This Blogging Thing
I clicked publish on my first blog post on September 12, 2011. It was an exciting, but also frightening day. I wondered if anyone would stumble across my blog and read it. I wondered if I would get any comments. I wondered if I would continue to have something to say, something to write about. I wondered where this journey would lead me. And I wondered about my sanity.
Four years later and I'm still blogging. A lot has changed in that time (the url/address for instance). And yet, a lot remains the same (for instance, I continue to wonder about my sanity, lol).
If I think about what Nash and I have gone through in the past four years I've been blogging...wow.
Life really is like a roller coaster. There are ups and downs and sometimes one leads right into the other. The highs can be exhilarating, but the lows, well, they can be terrifying.
Blogging has helped me process it all. I've gotten insight and advice from others. I've been able to sort through my own feelings. It has been a communication tool in my relationship with Nash. It has been invaluable much of the time.
Many times I've relished having a place where I can bare my soul and not worry about the impact on my life outside of the blogosphere. Other times I've wished I could be more open with people in my life. But unfortunately, though I love my family and friends and I know they love me, I don't think ttwd would be looked at favorably.
