Happy birthday little blog.
Two years ago I started blogging again, mostly so I could share wedding photos from this wedding.
A lot has changed in those two years, but I have come to really love my little corner of the Internet, silly and pointless though it may be.
In theory, I actually think blogging is really stupid, pointless, and maybe narcissistic, as it is pretty much keeping a public journal on the Internet.
But I do love being able to keep up with my family and friends who are scattered around the country and world, and this seemed as good a way as any.
Plus, there are some blogs I really love reading, so I guess they can have some point. These days I am especially loving these blogs, among many others*:
- Erin’s blog (the bride pictured above) because it is perfectly poetic and well written. Plus I love that she and her husband moved across the country with no jobs and no reason. She also has a huge yellow cat who is one of my favorite felines.
- Fran’s blog, because it is everything I wish mine was. I also feel that she and I should have been besties but were kept apart by logistics and are thus estranged kindred spirits. Of course, everyone feels this way about Fran, and if you don’t after reading her about page, then maybe you and I wouldn’t actually be friends in real life.
- Bethany’s blog, because now she is back at work after the summer so she shares really funny stories about her students. She also shares just enough literature to keep us all cultured. Actually, all three of these ladies are bookish English major types… because I like to surround myself with book lovers.
- My dad’s, because he is in Jerusalem all fall, and I think he’s pretty great.
So little blog, even though I think that having you is kind of ridiculous, I’ll probably keep you around at least a little longer.
*I really could go on forever listing all the blogs I like, but I will stop for now and just try to give lots of links periodically to the others. If you have/know of any good blogs that I can use as material to aid in procrastinating from grad work, please leave them below!
