Such a great reminder of what it means to be a blogger. I remember when I started blogging, imagining that I would post every day and millions of people would see my posts.
It was January 11, 2009.
I don’t remember how much thought or planning went into the decision (if any) to start a blog. I have a feeling it sort of just … happened.
My first blog post, as much as I can remember, was the first thing I ever published. Not long after that, I mailed myself a proof copy of my first NaNoWriMo book (which at the time was SUPER COOL), and had an essay published anonymously in a creative writing magazine.
Before that, I had never published anything. I had spent almost 10 years writing in journals, composing short stories and song lyrics, outlining book ideas. But though I had submitted a few essays here and there, I’d never really thought of online publishing as an option.
I was obviously a little late to the blogging game, and my blog definitely did not take off right away.
