Hehehe...bad grammar for an editor and teacher, but I had to do it!
Today marks my 20,000th visitor! Can you believe it?
When I started my blog in March of 2008, I had no idea what doors it would open for me. Four and half years and 20,000+ visitors later I have met so many people both virtually and in real life because of this blog. Since starting this writing adventure, this blog has transformed from a rambling of a bored mom and teacher, to the gallery of a curious artist and amateur photographer, to the rantings of an angry unemployed soon to be divorcée, finally to the celebration station of an employed teacher.
When I came up with the title, "So I Was Just Thinking," it came from a quirky way that I would call my mom and brother. I would call one of them and just jump full force into the conversation as if we had been talking all along: "So I was at the store the other day...." I am sure many people found it odd, but I found that if I started with the niceties of "Hello. How are you?" I usually forgot what I was going to say. This is why I just love this blog. I can just jump right in and have a conversation with no one as if someone has been listening all along.
For example, I remember when:
I used to enjoy using the snooze bar.
I ranted about a certain nameless megamart.
I described my morning workout
Life sure is different from those days, although not any less crazy, just a different kind of crazy.
I would like to thank those of you have been there since the beginning and stuck around all this time. I have enjoyed getting to know you through your blogs and Facebook and real life meetings. I look forward to meeting many more of you in the future.
I am in the process of refocusing my blog again. Tell me, what is your favorite kind of post from me? Do you like the crazy mom stories, or maybe you like the cooking posts (good luck with that one) or even the crafty, art journaling type posts. Just let me know in the comments below. I can't wait to hear from you.
Let's end with a few random pictures....They seem to have been missing from my posts lately.
