Celebrating 6 years of blogging!

The blogging anniversary is kind of a big deal, but I also celebrate with a little hesitation. “Look at me!” is built into the blogger’s mindset, but strangely, so is the “I hope this is good enough” feeling. How do you balance the two?

For me, the answer is to just keep going. I’ve talked before about my early posts and how I’m embarrassed to read some of them. I’ve deleted a few, but most are still out there. It’s a process, but just when do you hit your groove? I’m not sure because I’m always thinking of how to make it better.

One thing is certain and it’s the only good reason to keep a blog going (the non-profit ones, I mean). It has to be fun. And for me, it is, even with the slumps and occasional dry spells.

Likes and comments are the boosts bloggers need, so keep them coming! But the friendships with other bloggers are what makes blogging truly worthwhile. So thank you for all that!

In the spirit of celebrating six years, here are some of my top posts (based on views):
