This post is for anyone who likes blog birthdays and a fair amount of self-reflection.
I'm two years old today! That's kind of a big deal in the blog world. I must be doing something right if I still have readers and haven't run out of material yet.
My first post was this one on September 24, 2007.
Year one in review (personal judgment):
Favorite stories were the Exploding Banana on October 12, 2007 and Espresso Mess-o on March 23, 2008. Best introspective moment was Culture Shock on January 22, 2008. Most interesting photos were taken on Spring Break across Europe from February 22 - March 2, 2008.
Then I turned one year old and didn't celebrate.
Year two in review (again, personal judgment):
Most useful write-up was Word Reference on October 24, 2008. Most colorful post was Deƨigual at Macy's on March 6, 2009. Favorite sarcastic post was Dishwashing Etiquette on May 13, 2009. Best introspective moment was Finally Out of North Philly on June 14, 2009.
Going into my third year, I'm going to keep this blog more down-to-earth than ever. I am developing a separate portfolio and considering starting a blog about tech-y and marketing-related subjects, or perhaps guest posting on other blogs devoted to these subjects so that this one can remain focused on My Life and the the people, places, and events that are important in it. That may mean fewer posts, but it will ensure that this space is maintained as a playground for my experiences in real life, and not just the virtual sphere.
I'd love to hear your thoughts below about what has made this blog special to you over the past two years, and what kept you reading. Were there any posts you particularly enjoyed that I didn't highlight above? As awlays, your comments and continued support are much appreciated.
