5 Year Blogiversary

me

Today I have been blogging for five years! Yes, on Halloween day in 2007 I went into the office at my terrible job (with great friends) and started a blog on company time. I wrote a couple of posts right there and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Since then I have posted a blog nearly every single day. This is my 1,845th post!

The blog has changed my life. I have made dear friends. I have connected with family around the country. I have found a creative outlet. I have chronicled my life and that of my family.

 Thank you for reading...some of you for all five years.


Today I thought I'd ask you for some of your favorite posts or features. Care to share?

I'm so glad you blog! I've been reading since before you were pregnant with Cordelia!

Roxanne said...

Happy Blogiversary! (That had better be in the dictionary in the very near future and credited to you! LOL)
I have read this blog faithfully for the past 1.5 years when I finally got myself the internet and a computer. I have read all past posts because I just had to get the history of the Wimmer family.
I absolutely love your Kindness Bandits and your Sunday Quotes. Your "wing it" vegan meals are awesome too!

Happy five years! I think I've been reading since almost the beginning! Thank YOU for writing all of this and taking us on your journey with you. It means so much to so many of us. You entertain and inspire more than you know!

I love the Kindness Bandit posts, and I loved seeing your jazz hands when you announced your first pregnancy.

Much love today to you and yours, and happy Halloween!

I actually loved the recent one about courage where you shared your vulnerability. That takes courage.

Mom said...

I love your Kindness Bandit as well. I especially love all the great photos of you and your sweet little family. I love you!

Mazel tov!! Thanks for writing interesting and thoughtful stuff everyday and for inspiring me to start blogging again. I'm only at 165 posts but still going strong! My faves are your random quirky posts, anything involving old pictures and of course, anything involving adorable pics of our kiddos together! Congrats on 5 years!

I understand your pain at your terrible job that led you to blogging...in only a way that the person who replaced you could understand... :) before I took over your spot, when I was the assistant to someone who made me sad on a daily basis, I discovered the world of blogs, crafting, etsy....my life was forever changed. Mostly because I realized that I was good at many things, but being a receptionist wasn't one of them!!

I planned my wedding at the front desk;)

I just started blogging again & yes, you are an inspiration to me!

Happy Blog-versary! I love how you have blogged daily. Kindness Bandit rocks. Your honesty, quirky bits, craftiness, real life ... all of it. It has been a blessing to get to know you and your family in this spot.
