It seemed like a good idea at the time

Once upon a time2Six years ago, I decided to jump on the blog bandwagon. I had always been interested in what I could do online, and back in the day, I even had a “web page” on AOL. But a few years ago, publishing a personal blog became very easy, and I thought I’d join in.

A lot has happened in six years, both good and bad. I’ve gained many friends, but I’ve lost some people who were very dear to me. But life goes on...because that’s what life does, as long as you’re living, and that’s about as profound a statement as you’ll get from me tonight!

I am very fortunate to have met quite a few of you in person over the years, and I can truthfully say that I have never had a bad experience. Quite the opposite...meeting some of you for the first time has been like meeting a long-time friend. I feel honored to have the readers I do, and that so many of you have stuck with me this long.

It seemed like a good idea at the time to start a blog, and I’m still glad I did it. I don’t update as often these days, and I don’t comment on other blogs as often, but I still enjoy writing here and reading elsewhere.

Thanks for continuing to read about our adventures and occasional tribulations. You’ve all been supportive in both, and I appreciate it more than you could ever know. I love you guys. I really do.


  1. though blogging for me was a disaster i will always be grateful that i have become friends with you from AOL to blogger.....maybe someday i will get to meet you face to face. I sure hope so.

  2. Happy Blogiversary!

    ♪♫ And maaaaaaaany more ♫♪

  3. A very happy Blogiversary to you, Beth! I feel very much the same way about my own blogging experience.

  4. I share your exact sentiments, and I'm proud to (accidentally!) be launched the new, focused version of my blog on your blogosverary! You were one of the first "blog friends" with whom I connected, and you and Ken are among the treasured few I have had the chance to meet! Here's to many more years of weekly updates, seasonal good wishes, and hopefully a yearly visit or so!

  5. A very happy Blogiversary to you!

  6. You know we love ya! We hope there will be many,many,many more of these to come.

  7. Congratulations on all that writing -- and very good, thoughtful writing at that! Isn't it amazing how time flies when you're a blogger? I just noticed that I've been doing it for over 4 1/2 years,and I can hardly believe it!

  8. Hard to believe it has been that long, but it has been a great journey full of great peeps!


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
