It’s my 10th Blogiversary, y’all! I’ve been managing this blog for 10 whole years!
When I started Pics and Posts a decade ago, I had little direction. I only knew that I needed a space to share some of the beauty and light I encounter daily. The blog was intended to be and has become my online “happy place” with a semi-captive audience for my photography, art, snail mail, and the random thoughts that cross my mind.
My goal was to craft a space that was free of the emotional weight of social ills and politics. Though I have sometimes been compelled to address certain social issues, I hope we have created a space together that calms rather than riles.
And here’s more great news: Once I hit “publish,” today’s post will mark another milestone–my 1000th blog post!
1000 posts! An average of 100 posts per year. Whew! A whole lot of blogging for the person who started posting whenever the mood hit or when time allowed.
In those early days of “blogging,” sometimes two or three months would pass between posts. Gasp! That’s hard to believe now that I make a point of posting two to three times per week.
Since I was nearing my 1000th post at the beginning of the month, my friend Cy gave me permission to “bow out” of the “blog-every-day-till-my-blogiversary challenge she issued. “We” decided it would be fitting for my 1000th post to be published on my 10th blogiversary.
I was going to keep going, even though I was insanely busy and pretty exhausted most days, but I was elated for the “reprieve.”
So here we are folks! 10 years in! How long will we keep traveling this bloggy road together? Should I take the blog in another direction? If so, which of the zillions of ideas should I pursue? Should I start over on another platform? So many questions. So many things to consider.
I’ll be mulling over these questions over the next few weeks. Until then…continue enjoying the ride with me!
One more thing: Thank YOU! I am ever grateful for your support, comments, likes, and reads!
