Cue drum roll. This is my 800th post!
I can hardly believe all that blogging has done for me. The friendships, the community, the opportunities and accolades. It blows my mind.
I'm proud of this blog because most of the time, I've kept it what I wanted it to be. I've shared my story, I've been honest about the struggles, and writing has always been my best method for gaining perspective.
I remember going to my first blogging event, so nervous and gushing to sweatpantsmom how much I love her blog. I still feel honored to call her my friend. And I'm proud to say I've had a few moments since then when people have told me upon meeting me that they like my blog. It feels like a standing ovation when someone says that.
I hear blogs are dying, and I know I haven't been writing as much, but I still plan to be here. After 800 posts, I admit, there are a lot of times when I don't end up writing what I'm thinking because it feels like a repeat. Still, I think there might still be a few more posts left in me!
Thank you for being here. Whether you've been here since the 8th post or have only read 8 posts or somewhere in between, it's an honor to have you here!
And a special thank you to Diane for the new pic!
