Happy blogiversary to me…it’s five years now that I’ve been able to keep this going, and considering we’re only a quarter of the way through the year and I’m already at my second-highest number of blog posts/year, I might have finally figured out this whole “regular posting” thing.
Ironically, it’s during a time when I’m not
riding competing, and should in theory have nothing to write about.
I originally started the blog for my own purposes of remembering stuff that happened and keeping myself on track. I’ve always loved to write, have been fascinated by others’ ride stories, and figured this would be a good place for me to store my own thoughts and memories of rides I’ve done.
What I didn’t anticipate was how this blogging thing would spiral off in unexpected directions. It’s been invaluable in forming a network and introducing me to great new friends. It’s given me an outlet for writing. And writing was an integral part of how I got my job with Renegade.
So I owe a lot to the blog…and THANK YOU, my readers/subscribers/followers, whether you’re new here, or been following me since the beginning. I value your input, your contributions, and your friendship. I still haven’t met most of you in person…but thanks to blogging, I feel like I know you and can call you my friends.
This sort of snuck up on me…I just happened to be looking at older posts when I realized, “Hey, the anniversary of my first post is coming up.”
And I’m actually writing this post a couple days ahead of time and scheduling it to post on the day, since I figured I would probably forget on the actual day.
But next year, I’ll plan better and come up with some kind of blog-party or something.
