Today is my sixth blogiversary!
Every year I tell myself I should do something special to celebrate. I wanted to do a giveaway this year, actually, but then I wasn’t organized enough to actually pull that off. (Of course.) So… you get this instead. I started this blog six years ago today and my how it has grown.
I’m in a weird period right now that is not too far removed, in some ways, from my early blogging days: I haven’t gotten very many views, comments, or likes lately, for instance. Which I recognize is completely my fault. I haven’t been as active here as I used to be or as I’d like to be.
To tell the truth, I’ve been incredibly busy lately. And tired. And a little sad. Definitely not as depressed as I was this summer, when I went through another blogging slump, but something like a mini version of that. Which still sounds dire, I realize that. It’s really not, though. I’m determined to push through this and catch up on any course readings that still need to be finished. I just thought I should explain why I’ve been absent recently.
Anyway, that’s all I had to say. I meant to post something special today, I really did – I think my blog deserves it. But I had neither the time nor the motivation to do so. For a while I considered just not marking this day at all since I wasn’t going to be able to do anything special, but that didn’t seem right. So this is me, announcing that it’s my sixth blogiversary.
There is something you can do to celebrate, if you’d like: I would really appreciate it if you told me six things about me and/or my blog. ANYTHING. Six anythings. Really. It can be just pure positivity or constructive criticism or advice or whatever. Maybe you have a favorite memory of something I said, or maybe you wish that I’d do a certain kind of post more often. Anything goes! I’m curious to see what you have to say.
