happy birthday...

... to my blog! and 500 posts, too!

I have been blogging now for three years! My first post wasn't my first attempt at blogging, I had a blog on the old yahoo! 360 (which I kept up with for awhile), and I even had a couple of blogger blogs before google bought them (I'm surprised they exist, and I think I remember the password to get to them), but this is where I have been most consistent.

In my first 4 months of blogging, I posted random information - even in the early days I asked "why blog?", I shared some scrap layouts, and took seasonal photos of my jacaranda tree.

In 2008, my blogging became slightly guided with content - 2peas had a daily blog challenge, so I answered a few questions, started checking out other blogs, and discovering new scrap voices. And I even borrowed ideas from other people (once I learnt how to create hyperlinks - that was a challenging evening between Steve and I, as it was something neither of us had ever done before!)

I shared reviews of scrap magazines, sadness about Chloe leaving, and coming back again, found new definitions, and shared obsessions (I think that was the last time I bought a really big stash of thickers). I counted down to important events, and shared random adventures in our lives. (I didn't realise until just now that I didn't share a birthday post for Douglas last year - I must make sure I share two photos this year!)

I have made new friends, learned new things about myself, taken lots of classes, and I have the memories to share in years to come. Thank you for being part of my journey, and for sharing your journey, too.
