Today is the fifth anniversary, or “blogiversary”, of A Lethbridgian View!
I am in a completely different place in my life now compared to five years ago. Five years ago, I had just been laid off from my job and was looking for work. I started the blog to fill in the extra spare time I had and to polish my rusty writing skills. Since then, I attended college for the second time in my life, received my diploma, got a job immediately after graduating, took a trip to the U.K. and Europe, and started a family.
My blog may not be updated on a regular basis, and my topics are all over the place, but I still love to write, and I love that this blog allows me to continue to write, and that I can share it with you. Five years does not mark the end of the blog. I have grown quite attached to it and would love to see it live as long as I do. Will I start blogging on a regular basis? Probably not, but at least you know I’m still around and itching to write.
I recently attended a Lethbridge Twitter “Tweet-Up” where I met a woman named Alisha. Our conversation got on to the topic of blogging, and I joked that you really couldn’t call me a blogger since my posts are so few and far between. But she encouraged me to continue writing anyway, even if it’s just a 100-word post here and there. I was so thankful for her words of encouragement. They came at a time when I needed them the most.
Thank you to everyone who reads, shares, and comments on my blog. It really means a lot.
